This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 74%. (I’m a bot)

Thousands of Bolivians took to the streets this week in mass demonstrations and marches against the coup government’s decision to postpone the country’s presidential election until October, further extending the brutal reign of unelected right-wing President Jeanine Añez as the coronavirus continues to ravage the Latin American nation.

Former President Evo Morales, who was ousted in a military coup last November, accused the Añez government of botching its response to the coronavirus pandemic and warned that “Postponement of the election date will only cause more suffering for the Bolivian people.”

Thousands of Bolivians have taken to the streets to protest against the postponement of elections and against the regime that came to power last year after a US-backed military coup that ousted Bolivia’s first Indigenous president, Evo Morales.
