Morales supporters marching into La Paz with the coffins of killed

security Forces used tear gas, after protesters placed a coffin on a military vehicle in La Paz.

Supporters of the ousted bolivian president Evo Morales marched Thursday in the capital La Paz with the chests. In them were people who have been killed in clashes with the police and the military.

Supporters are trying to raise awareness about the human cost of the crisis, which has hit the south american country.

security Forces fired tear gas to disperse the crowds, after protesters had placed a coffin and a doll of the interim president, Jeanine Añez on top of an armoured military vehicle.

the Demonstrators tried also to get into the space, where the presidential palace is located, says an eyewitness.

Añez, a former senator from the opposition, took office as interim president last week.

She has been struggling with a wave of protests against him in the wake of Morales' almost 14-year-old left-wing control.

at Least 29 people have been killed in clashes since Evo Morales withdrew from the post on 10. november.

It came to pass under pressure from protesters, civilians and security forces, after an Cratosslot international audit had found serious irregularities in the results of the election on 20. October.

Morales, who has been granted asylum in Mexico, has previously stated that he was overthrown in a racist, right-wing coup.

He has also said that he will return to Bolivia.

However, it seems that Morales' party, Movement for Socialism (MAS), continues without him.

Partimedlemmerne have agreed to cooperate with their political opponents to adopt a law to cancel the results of the election on 20. October, paving the way for a new election.

Some have also called on the former president's supporters to stop their protests. No, Morales has not yet done.

- We need to reassure the country. I will ask the people, supporters of the Movement for Socialism, to stop the protests and think about the new leaders of our political party, says Henry Cabrera, who is a senior MAS-member.

Cabrera goes on to say that MAS will stand for the next elections with a new, young candidates, and to Morales and his former vice president will not be among them.
