Jamuy, carajo, JAMUYYY

Those are the words my “contacts” in the “Palacio Quemado”, Evo’s office in La Paz , say are vomited by Evo himself since the early hours every day. The desperate words, which mean “hurry the fuck up”, are yelled at the maSSits zealots that had fallen behind the democracy fighters of Bolivia, a group that has defined May 4th of 2008 as the day the department of Santa Cruz will chose if they want or not autonomy from the centralized, racist and fascistic regime of Evo Morales.

The result of this referendum is well know by everybody, a YES for autonomy; and the maSSists are now moving their pieces in this political chess game that will have “similar”, but not identical, repercussions as the referendum that gave Kosovo its recent independence from Serbia. These moves are filled out with planed street violence by the maSSists squadristy under hypothetical representation of the will of the people by the regimes Social Sectors (SS).

The two majors moves have different scenarios, the one in Santa Cruz, where the referendum is going to take place is leaded by Lucio Videla, a puppet of the maSSist under the command of the divided local Workers Union (COD) and by Pedro Nuni, a little know leader of CIDOB, a self proclaimed Indigenous Confederation of the Bolivian Low Lands that has more colons from the highlands than local native indigenous members. These sinister individuals will be in charge of leading public marches by the regimes mobs (SS), breaking peace and tranquility and seeking one or more violent confrontations with the hope of having a martyr in their ranks; thus having the empowerment of downplaying the future autonomy of Santa Cruz because it will “supposedly” be chosen under the blood of the fallen. Exactly the same reasoning behind the way the maSSist proposal of constitution was written and which is effecting so much its acceptance by the people.

The second major move is planed to be taken in effect in La Paz, under several actors identified up to VP Garcia Lineras, their goal is to force the congress, to approve going to the urns for the maSSist referendum in rewards to their proposal for new constitution the same May 4th of 2008. To do so, the regime has already mobilized scores of zealots form the coca growers of Yungas and El Chapare, the last are know as the most violent of the SS, specially taking in account that no one had ever being able to take to justice any of their members, now officially “protected” by the regime as explained by the regime’s Minister of Government, Alfredo Rada; which just said this SS have “permission” to stalk congress.

The opposition in congress, which control the upper chamber has already told the maSSist, “no way Jose”; before any laws are created to bring up the referendum for the new constitution, they will approve the referendum that will decide if the people wants or not to change the president and the prefects. A proposition presented to the lower chamber by Evo Morales itself and that has passed the upper chamber with some more “participative democracy” rhetoric. This is a referendum Evo Morales and their zealots want nothing to do with and have being trying to let it be entrapped in congress for ever.

The next days are going to be crucial, the maSSist are desperate to get a law that will favor them in a way that it could be somehow seen as legal. The bullying of congress is, by their means, a very legal tactic and they are not worry about their repercussion; it is just the way they got to power and they are not planning on changing for the best at this time of the game. The opposition must be very careful at putting their cojones in place and not run away from trouble in La Paz and keeping their own people in control in Santa Cruz in a way that any confrontation will be considered a defense instead of an attack. We will see what happens, the fact is the liberties and democracy en Bolivia are now, in the hands of very few people with a lot of mass movement capacity.

A Truce Evo Style and the Cocalero Cojones

A few days ago, after the Departmental Electoral Court of Santa Cruz defined they would go ahead with the departmental referendum for autonomies, against the will of its national director, the regime’s puppet J.L Exeni; A decision that came immediately after the CONALDE stepped out of the negotiation table when the maSSist intended to manipulate the agenda for their “dialog”. Evo Morales and his neo indigenous fascist shivered of fear and decided to call a “humanitarian truce”, with no political talking and pressure of no parts in these terrible days where half of Bolivia is under inundation.

The CONALDE of course was politically forced to accept he truce but did not back down from their intent to move the autonomic referendum. The regime’s rhetoric was quiet in the two days that was busy trying, with no success, to prove the US government was spying over the spies of Cuba and Venezuela in our territory. Then Evo Morales moved to his home turf, El Chapare, supposedly to follow up over “humanitarian assistance” given to his supporters in this also, inundated area.

But all Evo did was, well, tear down the truce; not that we are surprise at him not being truthful with the country, but one will expect at least a week of peace and quiet; who knows and with all this rain, what bug must be bugging our own Bolivian apprentice of dictator. Among the “news” he publicly gave us is that his people in El Chapare and El Altiplano, were asking him to have “cojones” and if not, to give them weapons to put the “cojones” for him in order to achieve their indigenous inclined political change. Of course we all know that the regime has already these paramilitary forces established in El Alto and Achacachi (Altiplano), Cochabamba (El Chapare) and as the violent acts of Montero showed, in Santa Cruz.

Of course he also cried about the “illegality” of the referendum for autonomies in Santa Cruz and advocate the Social Sectors, representing the regimes SS, and the army to take part in violent acts against the autonomic movement; Which is present in Santa Cruz, Tarija, Beni, Chuquisaca, Pando and Cochabamba. No wander he is so afraid, he needs to go to his cocaleros zealots to take a little bath of testosterone. The problem he has, and is what really bugs him, is that he will have to violently restrict at least half of the country, something he isn’t capable to do, not even with the help of Fidel & Chavez.

So, the truce is off and half of the country is still under water, but the regime wants it or not, the autonomy is well afloat and no quantities of SS paramilitary are going to detain it.

The fake conversational attempts leaded by Evo Morales’ fascist regime with the freedom fighter of CONALDE has finally touch rock bottom; as expected but not as I hoped. Many of us Bolivians new from the beginning that this was just another attempt to gain time in a moment where the maSSist were at a very low point after they presented to Congress their abortion of proposed text for a new constitution violently conceived inside a military installation in Sucre and forcefully given birth by a maSSist only mob in Oruro. The prefects, of course, where politically obligated to loose this time not to let the regime accuses them of not wanting to achieve agreements; accusations that everybody new they were going to do anyways but that didn’t have any taking in account by those that fight for democracy and the human rights in Bolivia.

During this short period of time Morales and his regime had propagandized a rosary of the lowest possible acts, making mistake after mistake and off course, like always; not taking any responsibility and accountability of the disgrace they represent for this once flourishing democracy in the hart of South America. Things like trying to “buy” the votes of the elderly with a program with a different name, since isn’t a new program; when the old bonosol was better programmed and executed than the maSSist intent of “bono”. Things like using the money that could be serving to help Bolivians in the disaster zone this country currently is, illegally spying on the political leaders fighting for democracy; and later on trying to blame it to the US, off course, we already know, Gorge Bush is even responsible of Evo’s flatulence.

And finally, the total incompetence at the moment of running a policy to try to help the Bolivian population affected by the current natural disasters. Don’t be surprise if Evo blame the rains to the US also. But what can you expect from a president whose idea of “working” and “showing” that he and the regime are trying to compromise issues for the best of the country is, “assisting with the opposition leaders to the different carnival festival entrances of their cities”. What a joke, Evo Morales himself is behaves as a “pepino”, and off course, non off the members of CONALDE where full enough to fall for the populist scheme. Maybe Evo’s fatidic words; also in this short month and a half, saying that with the “bono junacito pinto” & “bono dignidad” he was done and now the opposition can get rid of him, also helped the democratic fighters to say, enough is enough, the time has come.

It seams that the next political steps in the country, in order to avoid violent civil war, is going to be going to the urns by the population to define our future in several referendums. This is going to be another confrontation in itself; which I will address further on time, since the maSSist henchman in charge of organizing elections in Bolivia has already said he wants to limit the referendum instances to 4; one can imagine which ones he wants to choose.

For certain, one of the chosen ones will be the referendum to approve and disapprove the regime’s bloodied text for new constitution and I find this a proper time to examine some of their several articles in relationship to their compliance to Bolivian’s human rights; I will make this analysis step by stem, one at a time, in English and Spanish. Since the maSSists haven’t made public the “changes” made to it, maybe because they are currently working over them; I will use the one presented to congress, after the illegitimate doings in Oruro.

How Low Can a President Get

There is a saying in Bolivia that more or less goes “in love and war anything is acceptable”; in no part of it do we have the word politics. A friend of mine told me ones that the reason is that in politics, “the lowest of the low is the acceptable”. Taking in account that politics are what rule our well being, as a citizen of Bolivia at least; accepting that you had to be the “content” at the bottom of the shit pod to be in politics is really difficult to grasp.

Today, president Evo Morales showed the world that you have to be the “content” if you want to survive as a populist ruler. It is a good thing I don’t think the best democracies are build under the necessity of plotting big media shows no matter who you abuse.

It is very sad, that today, the abused where the poorest of the elderly of Bolivia; today the populist bulldozer of the maSSist machinery moved its pieces at their best fascistic style and gave 200 bolivianos (25$US) to those over 60 years old. An excellent initiative that is just a continuation to a previous president’s policy, with a different name; is almost the same “chola” with other “pollera”. And I said almost because the other initiative, called Bonosol, was carefully explained to the population and was being given silently and effectively to the elderly one time a year, the day of their birthday.

Today, thousand of poor old women and men travel kilometers to get those 200 bolivianos (25$US) and returned home with theirs hands empty and bitterness in their hart. The reason, the regime doesn’t give a shit about them, all they wanted were the cameras showing the few selected elderly kissing the hands of mighty Inca Evo. So sad, they were meanly leaking the bottom of the shit pot.

The good thing about all this is that the majority of the people in the Country have a clear idea of today’s intention, and from today every single day; since the regime’s initiative is supposed to be given every month of the year the day of the birthday of the beneficiary. Up to date, no one knows where to go or if the money is going to be given to those that their number lands Sunday or in a Holiday. At the end, this is one more reason for Bolivians to understand that the “content” must hit the fan.
