The national strike and road blockades have intensified across Bolivia. The Bolivian Workers’ Center (COB) called for these actions to oppose the postponement of general elections. In response, the de facto government maintains its strategy of criminalizing the national mobilizations and blockades. On Monday August 10 a prosecutor from La Paz called for Evo Morales, MAS presidential candidates, Luis Arce and David Choquehuanca, as well as secretary general of COB Huarachi, to be investigated on charges of genocide and terrorism. Despite this increased repression, the people of Bolivia remain on the streets.
