The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), as the only expression of world class-oriented trade unionism and on behalf of 97 million workers across the five continents, reaffirms its class solidarity to the working class and the people of Bolivia, who, once again, are faced with destabilizing imperialist interferences.
The WFTU denounces the maneuvers of the political opposition in Bolivia, orchestrated by imperialism, that seek to destabilize the country and overthrow the legitimate and elected president, Evo Morales Ayma. We also express our strongest repudiation against lynchings and kidnappings of trade union and social leaders, perpetrated by reactionary groups.
The firm position of the WFTU has been and will continue to be that the people are the only ones who have the right to decide on their present and their future, without external interference.
In that sense, we express our solidarity with the Bolivian Workers’ Center (COB) affiliated to our big union family and call on the Bolivian people to defeat the imperialist plans, reject every attempt of coup d’etat and fight for the emancipation of the Bolivian working class, against the man by man exploitation.
