Bolivia's president Evo Morales called Tuesday for an urgent meeting with the heads of state and foreign ministers of the member countries of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) to set position on the imperialist conspiracy that has led to fascist actions in Venezuela from February 12.

"Our obligation is to defend the democratic revolutions, because this coup attempt is an attack on democracy. If we let it happen in Venezuela it would surely happen in other countries. It's a conspiracy to democracy, but basically is an attack on an anti-imperialist government," said the president in an interview with Telesur.

Furthermore he reiterated that the United States funds violent groups to attack anti-imperialist and democratic governments, in order to seize their natural resources, as happened in Libya, a nation devastated and plundered by the imperial forces.

Morales stressed that despite these claims the peoples of the world have woken up and are constantly mobilizing to free themselves from oppression, so he categorically rejected any intervention that undermines democratically elected governments.

Moreover, he confirmed his visit to Venezuela next March 5, which marks the first year of the physical departure of the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chavez.
