The US-Supported Coup in Bolivia: Revealing and Tragic – System Update with Glenn Greenwald

This week on System Update, Glenn Greenwald hosts an in-depth exploration of the 2019 military coup that toppled Bolivia’s democratically elected President Evo Morales, the ongoing repression there, and what it reveals about US propaganda.

We speak with Bolivia-based activist Kathryn Ledebur, director of the Andean Information Network, about the situation on the ground, and from Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic & Policy Research, about the role of the OAS in legitimizing the coup.

Elon Musk under fire after expressing support for Bolivian coup

BILLIONAIRE Tesla owner Elon Musk has come under fire after welcoming last year’s overthrow of Bolivian president Evo Morales in what was seen as a bid to obtain the country’s lithium reserves.

In response to a tweet on Saturday that accused the US government of forcing Mr Morales out, allowing Mr Musk to access Bolivian resources, he wrote: “We will coup whoever we want! Deal with it.”

Hundreds of Bolivia’s indigenous population were massacred following what was branded “a fascist coup” against Mr Morales, who is currently in exile in Argentina.
