Strike in Bolivia due to electoral irregularities
An indefinite strike was called in Bolivia, while for the third day in a row Evo Morales has refused to announce the results of the second round of the elections.
The president of the Committee for Santa Cruz, Luis Fernando Camacho, is pressuring the government demanding to know the results of the election.
He said that if Morales does not comply, the people will recognize a new constitutional president for Bolivia.
Protests have been going on in Bolivia since Monday, when the announcement of results were unexpectedly suspended the previous day.
On Sunday, with 85 percent of the ballots counted, the data showed a need for a second round.
However, 24 hours later it was announced that, with 95 percent of the votes counted, Morales was winning and there was no need for a second round.
World Communist coup in Chile denounced
Analysts warn that the riots in Chile are not the result of social discontent, but a coup by the international left.
Several analysts pointed out that the riots and looting going on in countries in the region such as Ecuador, Peru, and Chile are not spontaneous.
Chilean President Sebastián Piñera warned that the country faces a powerful and well-organized enemy.
The Ecuadorian authorities denounced the gatherings and guerrilla-like tactics during the riots and are investigating who is financing them.
It should be noted that some 30 left-wing leaders from 10 countries met mid-year in Puebla, Mexico.
The meeting marked the creation of a political group whose mission would be, according to some observers, to oppose the Lima group and to try by all means to bring communism back to Latin America.

El Salvador investigates financial backers of Mara Salvatrucha
El Salvador's attorney general, Raúl Melara, said all suspected gang financiers are being investigated.
The Justice official's comments came after a witness accused opposition National Assembly President Norman Quijano of giving money to the maras.
The prosecutor explained that the prosecution investigates a good number of politicians and nonpoliticians, and that the investigations have already begun.
He also pointed out that the inquiries are currently aimed at obtaining evidence, so as not to rely solely on witnesses.
