Thousands march in support of Bolivian government

Ruling government supporters, including miners and members of a Bolivian social movement known as the Red Ponchos (Los Ponchos Rojos), trudged into La Paz, as part of the "March for the Homeland," led by Morales, seven days after setting off from the town of Caracollo, in the Oruro department, covering 188 kilometres (116 miles).

Arce told a crowd of supporters, waving indigenous Wiphala flags, they would defend democracy.

Bolivia has been sharply divided since Morales' abrupt resignation in 2019 amid protests. His party, back in power with a new president, accuses the conservative opposition of leading a coup against him.
