La Paz, Mar 23 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian President Evo Morales will head on Tuesday the Sea Day’s celebration, in which the army will launch the slogan “Motherland or Death: We Shall Overcome” and it will be recalled the maritime demand to Chile.

  This day is the 131th anniversary of the clash with Chile for the city of Calama, in which Bolivia lost the access to the Pacific Ocean.

National authorities want to strengthen ties with the new Chilean government and to make progress in the unprecedented bilateral agenda that was opened with the further president Michelle Bachelet in 2006, which includes the maritime demand.

More than 1,000 years before the Pacific War, Bolivia and Chile does not have diplomatic relations and have only ties between their consulates.

The celebrations will be the perfect opportunity to launch the military slogan, which has been criticized by many opposition sectors.

Morales told to media last week that the new slogan involves a deep commitment with the change process begun in 2006.

It is also a reflection of the wish to die for the motherland, as states one of the verses of the national anthem, Morales said.
