International Support Rallies To Morales

New York: (digitalwarriormedia) Bolivian President Evo Morales received the backing of the alternative trade bloc “Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas” (ALBA) at an emergency meeting in Venezuela on Wednesday. Along with Bolivia and Venezuela ALBA also includes Nicaragua, Cuba and Dominica, all of whom signed a statement of support for Morales today in Caracas. Support needed to counter the governor of Bolivia’s most restive province of Santa Cruz with an upcoming succession vote.

On his agenda was a speech in Canada to bring attention to the struggles of a sustainable world with a combination of fossil fuels and the prospect of bio-fuels devastating & stunting the economy of world. Morales said those events were detracting from the 4% increase in Bolivia’s Gross Domestic Product & the dramatic increases in Gas revenue.

Morales was abruptly diverted from international endeavors in support of Indigenous Rights, sustainable development & calling for the end to wars. Speaking at both the United Nations & the American Indian Community House, indigenous Elders were updated by the President on his efforts to provide a future for the country of 9 million, with 87% of that being Native.

The leaders of the ALBA trade bloc, conceived as an alternative to the U.S.-backed Free Trade Area of the Americas, also signed an agreement today to help increase production efficiencies of rice, beef, milk and other agricultural products amid increasing food shortages around the world.

While In New York, his Excellency President Evo Morales Aima received resounding support for his messages from a wide array of sectors. World Leaders, Indigenous Elders, United States Civic Leaders and the many of whom would swarm him as if the pope had come to town. In Evo’s case, his accessibility was for all….the press could wait….we did so respectfully.
