Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday became the second U.S. lawmaker to join the growing chorus of voices across the globe who are condemning the resignation of Bolivia’s socialist President Evo Morales as a “coup.”

As Common Dreams reported earlier Monday, “Morales was forced to resign Sunday under threat from the nation’s military, police forces, and violent right-wing protestors.” The resignation followed Morales’ announcement that he would hold new elections after the U.S.-dominated Organization of American States (OAS) questioned his October victory.

Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman Democrat from New York, tweeted in both Spanish and English Monday afternoon, “What’s happening right now in Bolivia isn’t democracy, it’s a coup.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez@AOC

What’s happening right now in Bolivia isn’t democracy, it’s a coup.

The people of Bolivia deserve free, fair, and peaceful elections – not violent seizures of power.69.5K7:26 PM – Nov 11, 2019

The democratic socialist’s comment echoed that of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a fellow Squad member who had weighed in on Twitter late Sunday.

Progressives thanked Ocasio-Cortez “for breaking the deafening silence” and encouraged Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)—whom both Omar and Ocasio-Cortez have endorsed for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination—to issue a similar statement on the recent developments in Bolivia.

Within two hours of Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet, Sanders took to Twitter to express his concern “about what appears to be a coup in Bolivia.”

Bernie Sanders@BernieSanders

I am very concerned about what appears to be a coup in Bolivia, where the military, after weeks of political unrest, intervened to remove President Evo Morales. The U.S. must call for an end to violence and support Bolivia’s democratic institutions.76K9:16 PM – Nov 11, 2019

The Washington, D.C.-based independent membership organization Just Foreign Policy responded by thanking Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez, and Omar “for standing up for Bolivian democracy.”

Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted Sunday that he “fully support[s] the findings of the [OAS] report recommending new elections” in the South American country, and President Donald Trump on Monday called Morales’ resignation “a significant moment for democracy in the Western Hemisphere.”

Throughout Monday, progressive journalists and advocacy groups continued to condemn the coup and U.S. media outlets reporting on it:

Glenn Greenwald@ggreenwald

There’s literally not a single thing about the violence and military rule taking place in Bolivia that is about restoration of democracy.

Everything that’s happening is about an end to democracy there: a classic coup.

It’s astonishing US media outlets won’t call it that:

Naomi Klein@NaomiAKlein

Exactly 10 years ago, Evo Morales’s negotiators went to a U.N. climate summit and called for a “Marshall Plan for Planet Earth” and “rights for Mother Earth.”

The idea was what is now being called a #GreenNewDeal.

If we had listened then, the world might not be in flames.

Uber CEO Under Fire for Downplaying Saudi Kingdom’s Murder of Khashoggi as a ‘Mistake’

“Not only is he running cover for the Saudi government by saying the pre-planned murder of a Washington Post writer was a ‘mistake,’ he compares the murder of a human being to Uber making a tech glitch.”

Uber’s ultra-millionaire CEO Dara Khosrowshahi came under fire Sunday for downplaying the Saudi kingdom’s gruesome murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi as a “mistake” comparable to technological malfunctions in self-driving cars.

“It’s a serious mistake,” Khosrowshahi told Axios in an interview that aired late Sunday. “We’ve made mistakes, too—with self-driving, and we stopped driving and we’re recovering from that mistake. I think that people make mistakes, it doesn’t mean they can never be forgiven. I think they have taken it seriously.”

Khosrowshahi’s comments sparked immediate outrage and the trending Twitter hashtag #BoycottUber.

Karen Attiah, global opinions editor for the Washington Post, where Khashoggi worked as a columnist before he was brutally assassinated and dismembered, called the Uber CEO’s remarks “absurd” and noted that the repressive Saudi government is one of Uber’s largest shareholders.

“Not only is he running cover for the Saudi government by saying the pre-planned murder of a Washington Post writer was a ‘mistake,’ he compares the murder of a human being to Uber making a tech glitch,” Attiah tweeted. “If one of Uber’s main investors kills someone it doesn’t really matter. A representative of a murderous regime can still keep a board seat. When you’re rich, your crimes become ‘mistakes.'”

Watch Khosrowshahi’s comments:

Khosrowshahi later apologized for his comments and said he was “wrong” to call Khashoggi’s murder a mere mistake.

“There’s no forgiving or forgetting what happened to Jamal Khashoggi,” Khosrowshahi tweeted Monday morning. “I said something in the moment I don’t believe. Our investors have long known my views here and I’m sorry I wasn’t as clear on Axios.”

October marked the one-year anniversary of Khashoggi’s murder, which the CIA concluded was ordered by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

As Ben Freeman and William Hartung of the Center for International Policy wrote in an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times last month, the Saudi regime has yet to be held accountable for Khashoggi’s assassination.

“On the anniversary of Khashoggi’s murder,” said Freeman and Hartung, “we owe it to him to stand up to the Saudi lobby and the president, and once and for all punish the Saudi government for what it has done.”

At least 69 Palestinian demonstrators were injured in Friday afternoon with Nazi soldiers on the border between eastern Gaza Strip.

Ashraf al-Qedra, Palestinian spokesman of the health ministry in Gaza, said in an emailed press statement that 69 Palestinian demonstrators were injured in eastern Gaza, including 29 who were shot and injured by Nazi soldiers’ gunfire.

Hundreds of Palestinians flocked to the eastern border of the Gaza Strip to join the weekly anti-Nazi rallies and protests, also known as the Great March of Return, that has been going on since late March last year.

Eyewitnesses said demonstrators waved Palestinian flags, chanted anti-Nazi slogans and threw stones at the soldiers stationed at the borderline area, who fired dozens of tear gas canisters and rubber-coated metal bullets.

Field paramedics said that dozens were injured after inhaling intensive tear gas fired by the Nazi soldiers and some were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets. Most of the casualties were treated in the field, they said.

Nazi media reported that Gaza demonstrators released dozen of arson balloons into southern 1948 occupied Palestine and also threw homemade hand grenades and percussion bombs at the soldiers stationed at the borders.

Ahmad Bahar, a senior Hamas leader from Gaza, told reporters that the masses of participants in the Great March of Return “again show our people’s will to topple all the planned plots against our cause.”

He stressed that the marches will never stop until it achieves its goals of lifting the Nazi siege that has been imposed on the Gaza Strip since 2007 when Hamas movement seized control of the enclave.

The Highest Commission of GMR has earlier called on the coastal enclave’s populations to join the 82nd Friday of the weekly rallies to protest “to send a message that the marches will go on.”

The health ministry in Gaza said earlier in a statement that since the marches and rallies started in late March last year, the Nazi army has killed 313 demonstrators and wounded 19,000 others in eastern Gaza Strip.

Tunisian political analyst Mohamed Hedi Gabri commented on the nomination of Rashid Ghannouchi to the presidency of parliament in his new term after the meeting of the Shura Council, “Ennahda” movement, yesterday.

He added, “Gabri” that “Ghannouchi” received a majority of votes within the Shura Council, “Ennahdha”, but the decision of the nomination taken by the “Ennahdha” and exercised its legal right to submit a candidate, remains hostage to the consensus that the movement is looking for and did not get until the moment, This makes the chances of Ghannouchi winning the presidency uncertain.

He explained: “It is not possible to say whether Ghannouchi can win, especially since the movement of the people and the Democratic Movement intend to present their candidate in light of the political isolation imposed on Ennahda..

In the opinion of “Gabri” that the nomination of “Ennahda” to “Rashid Ghannouchi” President of the Parliament is not a serious step, but a maneuver to improve the terms of negotiations on the formation of the government, because “Sheikh Rashid Ghannouchi” is not the broad consensus of the various political components of the parliament, adding that it is healthy Unable to bear the burdens of the presidency of the Council after the manifestation of the symptoms of aging and disease.

In another context, said “Gabri” on the intention of Turkey to transfer “1200” members of the “Daesh” to about 60 countries, “Gabri” said that the Tunisian civil society is following with great interest the statements issued by the Turkish Interior Minister, Suleiman Soilo on the initiation of deportation “460” fighters from Turkey to Tunisia.

Gabri concluded by surprise that no position has been issued either by the Tunisian authorities or by the official authorities, stressing that a group of civil society elements are moving to protest at Enfidha airport to engage in a sit-in and protest against the Turkish plane landing IS fighters to Tunisian territory to return to them..

It is noteworthy that the Turkish media announced on Monday, start deporting ISIS militants detained in Turkey to their countries today, days after the threat of the Turkish Interior Minister to deport them early this month, even if they were stripped of their nationalities.

The media also quoted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last Friday, that there are “1201” of ISIS detainees in Turkish prisons, while the Turkish authorities detained “287” militants in Syria.

In another context, stressed the President of the Shura Council of the Renaissance, Abdul Karim Harouni their adherence at a press conference on Sunday to nominate a figure from within the “Renaissance” to head the government as well as the nomination of “Rashid Ghannouchi” to head the parliament.

The Moroccan campaign for the province of Israel invites Moroccan youth to boycott the fifth session of the youth leaders forum (5 ÈME FORUM DES JEUNES LEADERS) in the city of essaouira, Morocco from 15 to 17 November 2019, due to Israel’s participation in it, which is a clear normal and an attempt to show the Israeli occupation and settlement-Israeli settlement as a natural partner in a forum in Morocco, where the majority of our people refuse to normalization completely .

This will be the fifth time that the forum will be held in essaouira, sponsored by the French Embassy and the French Institute in Morocco, but it is the first time that the embassy of France calls for Israel to be involved in this forum. This is in the appeal of the French Embassy in Tel Aviv to encourage French-speaking Israelis to register and join, which states:

” we invite young Israeli youth between the ages of 18 and 25 who understand french well to present their candidates for participation in the fifth session of the youth leaders forum, the theme ‘ commitment and partnership for citizenship New ‘, organized by the embassy of France and the French Institute in Morocco “.

(see the original text in French on the website embassy of France In Aviv)
With this invitation, the French Embassy gives itself the right, although it is a guest of Morocco, to call on Moroccan territory young Israeli youth of military service within an occupation army that daily war crimes against the Palestinian people, especially in Gaza and Jerusalem, that is People who worked yesterday or will soon work on the front lines of a colonial war and a continuing mechanism on the Palestinian people. As a reminder, the united nations independent fact-finding commission considered that the shooting by soldiers and sniper of the Israeli occupation army on the March of return in Gaza, demanding the lifting of the criminal blockade and the right of the return of refugees, was a clear violation of international humanitarian law and amounts to ” War crimes but to crimes against humanity “.

We condemn the French Embassy to host Israeli youth on the territory of Morocco, where the attitude of the maghreb peoples in general and the Moroccan people in particular has been consistent towards the Palestinian cause for decades, and we absolutely refuse the French Embassy to deal with the regime of settlement colonial and apartheid Israeli as a “reality” State and impose it on Moroccan youth to deal with it. It seems that the French Embassy in Morocco needs to be reminded that the colonial era is over.

We condemn the French Embassy’s failure to inform the forum participants, funding and framing the forum to invite the Israelis to participate. There is no doubt that this is a serious violation of customs by the organization, as the Moroccan people continue to express their condemnation of the occupation of Palestine and their condemnation of the crimes committed by the Israeli regime of settlement and apartheid. The right of the Palestinian people; the least of the fitness requires the guest to respect the feelings of their host. In addition, this delegation’s invitation to the forum is a service to the enemies of democracy and citizenship in the Mediterranean region.

On the other hand, the Palestinian campaign for the academic and cultural boycott of Israel (part of the largest gathering that represents Palestinian civil society and leading the boycott movement global) is considered to be a blatant conflict with the Israeli occupation and settlement regime Who and turn a party for his crimes against the Palestinian people.

Therefore, as we take this opportunity to express our full solidarity with the Palestinian people who are steadfast above their land, we strongly condemn war crimes and crimes against humanity, and we condemn the invitation of a foreign embassy to Morocco. We call on all parties concerned to peaceful pressure to cancel the call of the Israelis and boycott the forum if this request is not met. We also call on the official Moroccan authorities to prevent Israelis from entering the national territory.

“Mesa and Camacho, discriminators and conspirators, will go down in history as racists and coup plotters,” Morales said in a tweet early Monday morning. 

Former Bolivian President Evo Morales condemned Monday right-wing opposition leaders Carlos Mesa and Lusi Camacho for failing to stop the violence in the country and warning that they intend to blame him for such violence instead of taking responsibility following the coup against his leftist government. 

World Leaders, Organizations Condemn Coup Against Evo Morales in Bolivia

“Mesa and Camacho, discriminators and conspirators, will go down in history as racists and coup plotters,” Morales said in a tweet early Monday morning. 

“That they assume their responsibility to pacify the country and guarantee the political stability and peaceful coexistence of our people. The world and Bolivian patriots repudiate the coup.”

He added that those behind the coup against his government, who had vandalized his house and burned his sister’s house “now lie and try to blame us for the chaos and violence they have caused. Bolivia and the world witness the coup.”

He concluded his morning tweets with thanking the solidarity shown by his supporters in Bolivia and abroad. “Very grateful to the solidarity of the people, brothers from Bolivia and the world who reach out with recommendations, suggestions and expressions of recognition that give us encouragement, strength and energy. They moved me to tears. They never abandoned me; I will never abandon them,” Morales said. 

Evo Morales was forced to resign Sunday after senior army and police chiefs called on him to do so following weeks of right-wing unrest and violence against his Oct. 20 elections victory, in what his government has called a coup by opposition forces in the country. 

“I decided to resign from my position so that Carlos Mesa and Luis Camacho stop abusing and harming thousands of brothers … I have the obligation to seek peace and it hurts a lot that we face Bolivians, for this reason, so I will send my letter of resignation to the Plurinational Assembly of Bolivia,” the former president of Bolivia said in a press release. 

Bolivian Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera also said that he was resigning from his position. The two leaders said that they would be handing their resignation letters to the country’s National Assembly.

Since both President and Vice Presiden resigned, the president of the Senate, a position held by Adriana Salvatierra of the MAS party was supposed to assume the post but she later issued her resignation as well as the president of the Chamber of Deputies.

Currently, the line of succession is broken in Bolivia.

Morales and Garcia Linera will stay in Chimore in the central Department of Cochabamba to work with the people.  “We will come back and we will be millions as Tupac Amaru II said,” Morales declared.
