U.S. Statement Against Violence in Sucre, Bolivia

We deplore the violence in Sucre, Bolivia that claimed at least three lives during the weekend of November 23, stemming from Constituent Assembly deliberations on Bolivia's proposed new constitution. Democratic governments have the responsibility to protect their citizens' right to freedom of expression; we urge the Bolivian government and the opposition to show restraint and tolerance during this critical period. An environment that encourages inclusion and open debate is vital to the success of any democratic reform process.
