MAS returns to power in Bolivia one year after US-backed coup
Despite a year of unbridled state repression, including massacres committed against supporters of former Bolivian President Evo Morales, who was deposed just weeks after being declared the victor in the country’s October 2019 election, the left-wing Movement for Socialism (MAS) secured a resounding victory on October 18 for candidate Luis Arce, Morales’s former finance minister.
