10/31/20 Nicolas Davies: Bolivia Repudiates Yet Another Western Coup Attempt
Nicolas Davies joins the show for an update on the situation in Bolivia, where President Evo Morales was forced to flee the country last year after allegations that his party fixed the elections to give him another term. Davies argues that the elections probably were fair after all, but at the time these allegations were enough to set in motion a military coup that saw the installation of an interim government more aligned with America’s interests. Interim President Jeanine Áñez twice delayed a promised round of new elections, prompting widespread protests from Bolivian citizens. When elections were finally held, Morales’ party took back power in a landslide victory, which Davies considers a clear repudiation of what amounted to a Western-backed coup attempt last year. He says that the United States government must stop trying to interfere this way all over the world if it wants to maintain any of its former credibility as a beacon of freedom and democracy.
