Viva @evoespueblo !
Viva la hermana República Plurinacional de Bolivia!
Hoy desde el Congreso de la Nación Argentina repudiamos el Golpe de Estado y defendimos la democracia latinoamericana pese a la complicidad golpista de @mauriciomacri
"Long live Evo! Long live the sister Plurinational Republic of Bolivia! Today, from Argentina's Congress, we repudiate the coup d'etat and defend Latin American democracy; despite Mauricio Macri's complicity with the coup."
In Argentina's Chamber of Deputies, which met on Wednesday for the first time after two months of inactivity, the Front for Victory (FV) and the Justicialist Party (PJ) presented a draft resolution, which was also approved with the votes of most lawmakers.
"The resolution declaring that there is a coup d'etat in Bolivia has been approved," the Chamber of Deputies president Emilio Monzo said.
The deputies' resolution expresses "its repudiation of the coup d'etat perpetrated in Bolivia, which forced President Evo Morales and his vice president to resign to preserve peace."
"It also appeals to the restoration of the constitutional order and democracy," the FV-PJ bench leader Agustin Rossi said and warned that “the U.S. has a lot to do with the coup."
While both Chambers were discussing their resolution projects on Wednesday, the Macri administration continued to avoid public statements regarding what is happening in Bolivia.
The crisis unleashed during the planning and execution of the coup in Bolivia has left 8 dead, 508 injured and 460 detained so far, according to the Bolivian Ombudsman's Office.
