At the conclusion of their plenary assembly on Friday, the bishops of Bolivia encouraged everyone's commitment to "join efforts" to overcome the current crisis in the country and to rebuild the social fabric.
The bishops released a statement at the conclusion of their April 26-29 meeting in Cochabamba highlighting the Easter season, in which Christ "challenges us and calls us to show solidarity with the realities of suffering and poverty of so many of our disadvantaged brothers, the outcasts of society.”
Bolivia has experienced political crises since a disputed 2019 presidential election.
Evo Morales, the left wing then-president of Bolivia, fled the country in November 2019 after weeks of protest regarding the disputed election.
