Report from Bolivian Trade Unionists

7:50 pm local time
La Paz Bolivia, The masses who demand the return of EVO, in the Alto area,
gained control of the police weapons depot there. The police in the Alto
area have surrendered. Currently the masses are advancing on the city of La
Paz.  The police who are in La Paz are asking the masses in support of Evo
to avoid armed confrontations. They want to negotiate their surrender with
the masses loyal to Evo. *In the next few hours the return of the
legitimate President of Bolivia to his post of command is expected.

THE COUP D'ÉTAT IS IN RETREAT.

1.- 1st Vice-President of the Bolivian Congress (MAS militant) Clarifies
that she has not resigned, therefore, by order of succession she is the
President of that institution and takes the decision to suspend the
Congressional session. The right is bogged down.

2.- The main workers' unions call to dismantle the coup, otherwise they
will go on general strike and paralyze the country.

3. The main Campesino union center begins to block the country's
highways...pressuring the right to dismantle the coup.

4. Countries like Mexico, Argentina (President-elect), Paraguay, Venezuela,
Nicaragua, Spain...emphasize that the coup must be dismantled...

5. World mobilization of political parties, social and trade union
organizations, intellectuals, artists, human rights organizations demand
the dismantling of the coup d'état.

6. The Police Force has been divided...a large number of police have joined
the anti-coup forces....

These elements are strongly influencing the weakening of the right-wing
fascist forces that executed the coup d'état...so that in the next few
hours...according to international analysts the coup could be dismantled.
