Former Uruguayan President Visits Bolivia

LA PAZ – Former Uruguayan President Jose Mujica arrived on Thursday in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, where he plans to meet with President Evo Morales and learn about coca growing in the Chapare region.

The 81-year-old Mujica is scheduled to meet with Morales in Chimore, a town in the tropical region of Cochabamba, to discuss the politics of coca production.

The former president plans to meet with Chapare’s coca producers in the town of Lauca Ñ.

The Chapare region has huge symbolic and political importance for the Bolivian government since it is where Morales got his start as a union and political leader.

During the 1990s, Morales was the leader of the coca growers union and later represented the region in Congress.

On Friday, according to a preliminary agenda released by the Bolivian government, Mujica will participate in the “Crisis del sistema capitalista, la defensa de los derechos de la Madre Tierra y el nuevo contexto económico internacional” (Crisis of the Capitalist System, the Defense of the Rights of Mother Earth and the New International Economic Context) conference at the University of Cochabamba.

Also on Friday, the former president will travel to Santa Cruz to receive an honorary doctorate from Gabriel Rene Moreno Autonomous University.

Before concluding his visit to Bolivia on Saturday, Mujica will meet with several social organizations in Santa Cruz.
