Evo Morales Warns Against US Plan to 'Recolonize' Latin America

On Sunday, the people of Bolivia celebrated 192 years of independence.
In doing so, Morales expressed gratitude towards the multiethnic and
pluricultural nation and the country's signing of the Independence Act
in 1825, which made Bolivia a sovereign, independent country.
Earlier, Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera emphasized that the
greatest tribute to independence is to continue the transformation of
the Indigenous-majority country, which was initiated in recent years by
the political coalition Movement for Socialism.
Since Morales took office in 2006, Bolivia has undergone a dramatic
restructuring of its socio-political agenda. After nationalizing its
natural resource sector and liberating itself from foreign magnates, the
country has improved its education, healthcare and social security systems.
Once known as one of most underdeveloped nations in the region, the
country is now a leader in terms of its domestic economy. Earlier this
year, Morales stressed that Bolivia had achieved complete independence
from the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, which for many
years dictated the economic destiny of the country.
