Actualité - Evo Morales not Negotiating Land Matters

La Paz, Nov 16 (Prensa Latina) - Thursday Bolivian President Evo Morales ratified his government will never negotiate with big landowners concerning a new Land law, objective of which is to redistribute lands.

In that sense, Morales referred in a press release to the recently passed motion in the Chamber of Deputies, concerning modifications to an Agrarian Reform law, in the midst of the withdrawal of opposition groups.

The President assured the government will respect extensions that fulfilled a social-economic function, in correspondence to that regulation, but will legally expropriate the ones that violate that principle.

Morales highlighted there will never be an agreement with families whose goal is to enrich themselves with large land extensions, he stressed.

He also explained the best that can be done in these cases is to redistribute lands, in order to others work them, in benefit of all Bolivians, natives and peasants traditionally marginalized.
