SOT, Evo Morales, Former president of Bolivia (Spanish): "Presidents of the United States talk about peace, peace, peace. Do you know when we will have peace? We will only have peace when we have social justice. Without social justice there won't be any peace. In my experience there will be peace when we respect the sovereignty and independence of states. There will be peace when we respect and guarantee the dignity and identity of the world's people. Peace cannot be guaranteed by military intervention. Of this we are convinced."

SOT, Evo Morales, Former president of Bolivia (Spanish): "In Bolivia when we arrived, basic services such as water, electricity, telecommunications were totally privatized. We came into the government. We nationalized them but above all on the constitutional level basic services are now a human right and not a private business."
