Evo Morales Argues for a Worldwide Mobilization To Dissolve NATO
March 15, 2022 (EIRNS)—“NATO is a danger to world peace, to security, so we are in the task of reaching agreements with social movements, not only in Latin America, but in all continents, to eliminate it. If nothing is done against NATO, it will become a permanent threat to humanity,” former Bolivian President Evo Morales (2006-2019), reported to Sputnik Mundo, the Spanish site on March 9.
Morales charged that NATO’s “expansionist” and “interventionist” policies were the cause of the Russia-Ukraine crisis, for which he holds the U.S. solely responsible. “The U.S. always provokes wars to sell its weapons, interventions, military bases, to take over natural resources.... It is not only looking for Ukraine’s resources, but also to encircle Russia militarily,” he said.
Morales said the “Runasur,” an organization of various left-wing and indigenist Ibero-American social movements, is leading the effort for “an international campaign to dissolve NATO.” Morales initiated “Runasur” in April 2021, shortly after returning to Bolivia from his exile in Argentina after the fascist coup against his government organized by the U.S. State Department in November 2019.
What, if any, other international forces may have joined the campaign is not yet known to EIR.
