DISCOVER BOLIVIA


Bolivia is formed in a UNITARY SOCIAL STATE of PLURINATIONAL COMMUNITY LAW, free, independent, sovereign, democratic, intercultural, decentralized and autonomous. Bolivia is based on plurality and political, economic, legal, cultural and linguistic pluralism, within the country's integration process.

In ancient times mountains were erected, rivers moved and lakes formed. Our Amazon, our Chaco, our highlands and our plains and valleys were covered with greenery and flowers. We populated this sacred Mother Earth with different faces, and we knew since then the current diversity of all things and our diversity as human beings and cultures. Thus we settled our peoples, and never understood racism until we suffered it on the dismal days of the colony.

A state based on respect and equality among all, divinity, complementarity, solidarity, harmony and equality in the distribution and redistribution of social product, where the search for living well dominates, with respect to the economic, social, legal, political and cultural plurality of the inhabitants of this land; in collective living with access to water, labor, education, health and housing for all.

Bolivia came to a Republican life on August 6th 1825 as a free, independent, sovereign, multiethnic and multicultural nation, as the Constitution reads (CPE) in its Article 1. In addition, it adopts for its government a unitary, democratic, representative and presidential system as a Republic.

According to the Supreme Decree 411 of 2010 states that Bolivia, as of that date, has two dates to commemorate its founding on August 6 and January 22 because that day took place the foundation of the new Multinational State that leaves behind that in which, for nearly two centuries, people lived with a colonial way of organizing not only the state but everyday life.
