Bolivians appeal for end to conditions

26 October 2000

The worsening social and economic crisis in Bolivia, has led to several weeks of riots, according to The Bolivian Foro Jubileo 2000, which appealed to the international community and the Paris Club, which met in October, not to impose any new adjustment conditions. “If the international community by the means of their multilateral organisms imposes further measures in Bolivia like the absolute restriction of budget deficit it will mean less public expenses, more unemployment, even more poverty, more social inequality, more conflicts and even more loss of lives” said Foro Jubileo 2000.
