The Añez-led military junta is now floating a plan to pay 50,000 Bolivianos (approx $7000 US) to each of the victims’ families.
“Those 50,000 Bs won’t bring my brother back to life. He won’t show up singing “look sister, I came back! Here I am to take care of you!””
“We were getting ready to take a family vacation when we heard over the radio: ‘Omar Calles has died.'” Then they found out Bolivian police pushed their aging mother to the ground, broke her hand, robbed her, and called her a “bitch.”
“How can these cops treat people like this?”
The sister of Omar Calles, who was gunned down by the Añez regime’s security forces, has strong words for her brother’s killers.
“If you kill a dog or a bird they put you in jail. But they killed my brother & I don’t see anyone responsible in jail… How do they sleep at night?”
"They have taken away my brother—the only little brother I had," says the sister of Omar Calles. He was gunned down by the Bolivian coup government in Sacaba.
"We are not going to take those 50,000 Bolivianos they're trying to give us. That is not the value of a human life." pic.twitter.com/FcSn3gtDLL
