Demand that OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro resign now!

On October 21 of last year, a day after the elections in which Bolivian President Evo Morales was declared winner, OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro released a statement casting doubt on the electoral process due to an "inexplicable change in trend [of election results]." 

Not long after, the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) denounced the OAS’s bad analysis, noting that the trend didn’t change — it grew normally as a result of rural votes coming in. CEPR later realized that the OAS report used timestamps that were sorted alphabetically rather than chronologically. A coding error led to chaos and two massacres in Bolivia! 

In the October 18 elections, the people of Bolivia voted against fascism and neoliberalism and for peace and equality. The MAS party not only won the presidency, with candidate Luis Arce winning more than 55% of the votes, but it also won a majority in both houses. Mayor of Vinto Patricia Arce, who, in the midst of the coup a year ago was captured, beaten, brutalized, and dragged through the streets by right-wing thugs, was elected to the Senate. 

As we celebrate this democratic victory by the Bolivian people, we must also help them get justice for what the OAS did to their country. Demand that OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro resign now! 

Almagro has refused to respond to questions from members of the U.S. Congress and the media about the OAS’s bogus analysis of the Bolivian elections and its role in the military coup. The reason is simple: he does not have any facts to stand on. He must resign from his post and be held accountable for the coup and the resulting extrajudicial executions and massacres in Bolivia. Join us in demanding his resignation! 

After having watched the burning of the Whipala (the colorful flag that represents Andean indigenous peoples) by the coup leaders’ police forces, today we see it waving again thanks to the determination of the Bolivian people. Now, let us help them close this dark era of their history and prevent Almagro from doing more damage in other Latin American countries.
