Racists picket OAS

The Washington Post´s coverage of Evo´s US tour featured interviews with a hand full of "activists" protesting Evo at the OAS.
-
"We are here to denounce what Evo is doing to our democracy, to our freedom of the press, to our constitution, to our human rights,"
-
But WaPo reporter Pamela Constable didn´t tell you that the quoted "activist" Elena Abolnik is a fascist. She also forgot to tell you that these protesters engaged in racist verbal assualts of indigenous Bolivian dancers attending the OAS meeting.
-
Note to the US press: stop protecting these fascist coup plotters. They´ve lost. Game over, give it up.
