La Paz, June 13 (RHC)-- Bolivian President Luis Arce took part in a ceremony over the weekend in honor of the 79th anniversary of the Bolivian Federation of Mine Workers Union (FSTMB). "We celebrate the 79th anniversary of the glorious Bolivian Mining Workers Union Federation, the vanguard of the workers' struggle," he said.
"Our mining brothers' revolutionary lucidity has always guided our steps. Thank you for training us in the union struggle. Congratulations!"
