After Evo's ashes

Evo Morales’ Presidency did not survive to one of the most serious ecological disasters of the last decade, the fire of the Chiquitano forest. 

This fire united Evo’s opposition, who was after his fourth term of office in a country whose Constitution allows only two. 

 

During the last years of the Presidency of Evo Morales the worst draught in years occurred at the same time of one of the most serious ecological disasters of the last decade: the fire of the Chiquitano forest, the biggest dry tropical forest in the planet.

The fire consumed more than 5 million hectares, most of them in the department of Santa Cruz, historically against the centralism of La Paz.

The catastrophe stuck together the opposition parties who accused the government of Morales of lack of resources and, overall of foresight.

Only the austral summer rains managed to put out the fires.  And only then, the almost 14 years of Evo Morales in office came to an end.
