Morales calls for int’l help to stop Bolivia ‘genocide’

Ex-president Evo Morales urged the international community Wednesday to intervene to stop what he called a “genocide” in Bolivia, where 32 people have died in violence that erupted after his disputed re-election.

“This massacre... is part of a genocide that is happening in our beloved Bolivia,” Morales, the country’s first indigenous president, told a press conference in Mexico City, where he fled after resigning the presidency 10 days ago amid mounting unrest sparked by his contested re-election to a controversial fourth term on October 20.

“I call on the IACHR (Inter-American Commission on Human Rights) and the UN to condemn and stop this massacre of my indigenous brothers, who are simply asking for peace, democracy and respect for human life,” the leftist leader said in a separate message on Twitter.
