Actualité - Bolivian Prez to Analyze Land Laws

La Paz, Nov 28 (Prensa Latina) - In response to demands made by thousands of indigenous people, Bolivian President Evo Morales announced an emergency meeting of his Cabinet to analyze a possible decree on land legislation that has been stuck in Congress by opposition pressure.

Speaking to the more than 2,500 representatives from indigenous peoples and farmers who marched from eastern Bolivia to La Paz, President Morales stated that the Senate does not do its job, the Executive Power will respond to the social movements with a decree for equitable distribution of lands.

He explained that although important projects had been discussed in the House, they had not been put into practice because of the opposition in the Senate.

Morales said Bolivia will gain four billion dollars in four years from the nationalization of resources that will benefit the whole country, and spoke about generation of jobs with the application of a plan called "Pro-pais".
