Evo Morales: Those who rule Bolivia now are dictators, not me

Bolivia’s ousted president, Evo Morales, has told RT that the Organization of American States played a key role in deposing him, and that Bolivia’s huge reserves of lithium had spurred on the coup. Morales fled Bolivia earlier this month shortly after winning re-election to the presidency. Opponents claimed that the election was fraudulent and, though Morales offered to hold a fresh vote, he lost the support of his police and military then sought asylum in Mexico.

Morales was among a handful of leftist leaders remaining in Latin America and, speaking to former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa on RT Spanish, he claimed that the Organization of American States – a right-leaning bloc of states in the Americas based in Washington, DC – had engineered his downfall.
