Coca Farmers and others Reiterate Support

La Paz, May 8 (Prensa Latina) Farmer groups and six federations of coca planters of the Tropic of Cochabamba (center)decided the eve to reject the pressure measures of the Bolivian Worker Center (Central Obrera Boliviana) and support the dialogue convened by the Government.

  The Trade Union Confederation of Peasant Workers of Bolivia (CSUTCB) and the National Confederation of Indigenous Peasant Women from Bolivia “Bartolina Sisa”(CNMCIOB-BS) issued a determined vote with the coca planters.

In this regard, it was reported that they will not join the strike scheduled for next Monday, which aims to demand a wage increase superior to the five percent proposed by the Government.

The CSUTCB, CNMCIOB -BS and coca planters will not obey the strike or attend the marches, as this will only affect brothers and sisters in the country, they decided.

Also the social sectors in conflict are required to attend the dialogue convened by the incumbent president, Alvaro Garcia, to seek joint solutions that benefit the entire country.
