Yesterday, a lot of people from rural and urban areas went to Murillo´s Square in order to participate in the celebration of the third year of the government of the first indigenous President in the history of Bolivia, Evo Morales Ayma.

Early in the morning, a new newspaper called "Cambio" was presented at the Government Palace. Most of mass media in Bolivia belong to the people of right wing, so it is important to have other kind of media too. Later, for about four hours President Morales informed about the results during the last three years and his plans for the next two years.

This January 25th. Bolivia will have a Referendum through which we will decide whether we want a new Political Constitution or not. Yesterday, it was the last day allowed for campaigns, so people stayed at Murillo´s Square to close the campaign for the "Yes" to the new Constitution too.

There is a lot of expectation on this Referendum. Campaigns for Yes or No, were at times conflictive. I will be writing more about this next Monday.
