ALBA defends Paraguayan President Lugo against coup attempt by oligarchy

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM ALBA

Translated by Lizzie Phelan

The member countries of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas, ALBA-TCP, reject the manoeuvre of sectors of Paraguay’s political right to initiate impeachment proceedings against the constitutional President of the sister Republic, Fernando Lugo.

These proceedings seek the removal of President Lugo, and the installation of an illegitimate government to take Paraguay backwards to the old obsolete political practices.

We in ALBA-TCP reiterate our support for the democratic government of President Lugo, who can only be changed by a vote of the Paraguayan people that elected him.

We call the Paraguayan people to defend democracy, reiterating that they have the support of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Finally, we urge all democratic nations of the world to support the sovereignty of the Paraguayan people and the peaceful and democratic development of this sister nation.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 21, 2012
