The following article, based on a speech given in December 2007 but only
recently transcribed and published in Spanish by /Bolpress/ on May 12,
2008, is an important statement by a leading member of Bolivian
President Evo Morales' government on the political situation in that
country in the wake of the Constituent Assembly's vote on a draft
political constitution. The draft constitution is to be put to a popular
vote for adoption later this year.

Álvaro García Linera, Bolivia's vice-president, is a former leader of
the Tupac Katarí guerrilla army. He was subsequently employed as a
university sociologist. He is also a prominent Latin American Marxist,
strongly influenced by post-World War II European non-Stalinist Marxist
currents inspired by the ideas of the Italian communist leader and
political theorist Antonio Gramsci. Gramsci, who died in 1937, was an
innovative Marxist thinker who wrote extensively on the concept of
cultural hegemony and its role as an ideological mainstay of capitalist
societies.
