On November 10, 2019, Bolivia’s military threw its support behind an uprising of rightist pro-Imperialist forces, forcing the resignation of the elected government led by President Evo Morales and driving him into exile in Mexico. Rightist gangs unleashed a wave of murderous violence across Bolivia against all suspected of sympathy with Morales.
Canada’s government was shamefully quick in endorsing the coup. (See Yves Engler, “Canada Backs Coup Against Bolivia’s President”.)
