The bolivian a.i. Presidente Garcia Linera has urged collas to take up arms if necessary in defense of the ongoing process of changes amid diverse political and social conflicts shaking the nation. Warisata, Bolivia AN, Achacachi News) Wed. Sep 20.- Acting President Alvaro Garcia made the exhortation in Warisata, 4 Km north Achacachi, during the commemoration of the third anniversary of the first six deaths of the killing ordered by former president Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada and Carlos Sanchez Berzain to crack down on a social protest. The call comes amid conflict and pressure by conservative, regional and political forces for the Constituent Assembly to make decisions by two thirds. "We must continue fighting and mobilizing to guarantee the Constituent Assembly, the hydrocarbons nationalization, the trial of Sanchez de Lozada, currently in the US, for genocide and the redistribution of lands," Linera pointed out. His speech was immediately jumped upon by the opposition, among them Deputy Peter Maldonado, from the National Union group, who said the vice president, had riled people up and created an improper scenario to negotiate with transnationals.
