              <p>Bolivian President <a
href="http://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Morales-Declares-Total-Independence-from-World-Bank-and-IMF--20170722-0020.html">Evo
                  Morales</a> on Tuesday took to Twitter to state that
                the United States is planning to “recolonize” Latin
                America. </p>
              <p>The socialist Indigenous leader cited <a
href="http://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/-Venezuelan-Armed-Forces-Repel-Anti-Government-Attack-20170806-0011.html">Venezuela</a>
                as being the strategic link behind the scheme, of which
                “the empire has initiated a wide-scale battle to
                recolonize Latin America and the Caribbean.”</p>
              <p>In another tweet, Morales emphasized that the United
                States utilizes the same pretexts to justify their
                objective, including support for “democracy,” combating
                “terrorism” and fighting “narcotrafficking,” among
                others. </p>
              <p>He added that mainstream corporate media outlets <a
href="http://www.telesurtv.net/english/analysis/What-Mainstream-Media-Got-Wrong-About-Venezuelas-Constituent-Assembly-Vote--20170730-0037.html">replicate
                  the same excuses</a>, according to La Radio del Sur.</p>
              <p>After delineating the threat, Morales urged all troops
                in the region to remain alert to defend their
                sovereignty and independence.</p>
              <p>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.</p>
              <p>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.</p>
              <p>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. </p>
              <p>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 <a
href="http://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Morales-Declares-Total-Independence-from-World-Bank-and-IMF--20170722-0020.html">complete
                  independence</a> from the International Monetary Fund
                and World Bank, which for many years dictated the
                economic destiny of the country.</p>
