Last month we witnessed some truthful statements that we all expected when the Bolivian ambassador to the UN deconstructed Nikki Haley’s gibberish on the Security Council: ” Now the United States believes That they are the investigators, that they are the prosecutors, the judges and they are the executioners … the unilateral actions are imperialist actions. The United States is not interested in international law; They ignore it when it does not suit them. “
But it was just a warm up lap.
Speaking last week on the 10th anniversary of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Bolivian President Evo Morales warned that banks “controlled the world” and urged countries to reject Militarism of the United States and financial servitude.
Here are some highlights:
The financial crisis was generated by the banks. They control the world. They control the financial system. They are the real government of the world. There is no election for them, but they still govern.
It is my duty to inform you of what we have achieved in Bolivia. Through the awakening of consciousnesses within our people, and through social organizations, we have rediscovered our identity, and hence our dignity and sovereignty. We have recovered our land and our hope. And we are transforming it into a daily reality.
And Bolivia, with great pride, is able to assert that today we are 100 per cent literate.
We do not have US military bases on our territory. Bolivia is free from monetary funds and we can define our own monetary policy without any external interference.
Bolivia is free from foreign doctrines and military bases. It is very important for us to have control over our own natural resources.
What we have achieved in a country like mine is an example of what we are able to do at the global level.
