“Another proof that the coup was due to Bolivian lithium,” wrote former president Evo Morales
The businessman Elon Musk, owner of the Tesla company and the 5th richest person in the world, confirmed this Saturday (25th) that “he will hit anyone who is needed” to get lithium when commenting on the overthrow of Evo Morales in Bolivia. Since the episode, Morales has pointed out that there were international interests in Bolivian resources.
“We are going to hit anyone we want! Deal with it ”, said the billionaire when asked on the networks about his role in the orchestrated coup in Bolivia in October last year due to the lithium reserves present in the country.
To develop electric cars, the mineral is essential, after all the batteries of these vehicles are lithium.
Morales commented on the statement and said it proves what he was already saying. “Elon Musk, owner of the largest electric car factory, talks about the coup in Bolivia:‘ We’re going to hit whoever we want ’. Another proof that the coup was due to Bolivian lithium; and two massacres as a balance. We will always defend our resources! ”, He wrote on Twitter.
In an interview with the Forum in April, Morales classified the episode that occurred in November 2019 in Bolivia as “a blow to the Indian, the economic model and a blow to lithium”. Regarding the ore, they explained that Bolivia has “the largest lithium reserves in the world, larger than those in Chile and Argentina, and we had a project to industrialize lithium on our own, and the United States did not forgive our policy” .
