La Paz, Jan 16 (Prensa Latina) The launch of the book “Evo en la Mira. CIA y DEA en Bolivia”, by Argentinean author Stella Calloni, became a tribune to condemn US interference in this South American country.

  In a meeting held last Thursday in the city of Cochabamba, Calloni presented her latest research to President Evo Morales, government authorities and hundreds of Bolivians.

In her introduction, the prominent journalist noted that since the 1950s, the United States has penetrated Bolivia with its intelligence agencies, marking the beginning of eternal interference.

According to Calloni, imperialist intromission, followed by neoliberal invasion, caused a series of unstoppable rebellions that has brought together the best resistance in Bolivia, since the time when indigenous leader Tupac Katari headed the first rebellion against Spanish colonialism.

“Those circumstances led to what is today a model country for Latin America, led by Morales, who has waged those struggles and has challenged neocolonialism,” the Argentinean journalist indicated.

Calloni has vast knowledge about Latin America’s political history. She wrote a book about the Condor Plan, an espionage network created by Southern Cone dictatorships in the 1970s and 1980s.

For his part, President Morales referred to the attacks on him carried out by US agencies during his political and union career from 1985 to 2005, when he took office.

“The empire has two methods to eliminate the leaders who fight for their peoples, one of them is exclusion from the political scenario by accusing them of being seditious, the other one is their physical elimination,” the president noted.

Referring to the book, Morales recalled the episodes in which police and military officers, lawmakers and coca growers warned him on time to avoid ambushes to assassinate him.
