Now they come for Ruben

CONFESSIONS • "First they came ..." is a popular poem attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group.


"THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,

and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,

and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,

and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Catholics,

and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.


and by that time no one was left to speak up."

Ruben Costas would be in jail.

SANTA CRUZ DE LA SIERRA, Bolivia. — In an earlier note I prophesied that leader Branko Marinkovic would be pursued by bolivian police. Some time has passed and we can easily see that the prophecy was not wrong.

I noticed that if CONALDE (National Council of Democracy) have given importance to the arrest of the prefect Leopoldo Fernandez, if it had opposed the recall referendum, if it had accepted illegal parliamentary agreements, perhaps the prefects of Santa Cruz and Beni have warned that the threat of such detention was also writting theirs.

CONALDE did not do anything, because the lack of political vision, fear or cowardice, along with commitments to look after certain economic interests prevail over political logic.

But the political blindness persists.

And this time Ruben Costas, Suarez and Cossio (ex prefects) are trying to protect their economic interests with an electoral adventure, thinking that, if they both succeed, the police will not touch them . They are in the wrong track.

Proof of this is that the House of Representatives, controlled by the MAS (Movimiento al Socialismo), began the treatment of Higher Authorities Prosecution Law.

This law will debut in the prosecution of former Prefects of the so-called 'half moon', especially those of Santa Cruz, Beni and Tarija.

Police already came for Branko Gora Marinkovic J. and other leaders, now come for Ruben Costas. And be carefull, mistakes described above will give rise to when THEY CAME for you and by that time no one was left to speak up.
