Journalist Mireya Elizabeth Garrón speaks of the socio-political crisis in Bolivia and analyses the role of evangelical churches in the marches that helped revoke the new Penal Code.
The President of Bolivia says he revokes it “to avoid confusion”. Evangelicals were against a law that “could severely limit the organization of evangelistic activities”.
The new Penal Code criminalises evangelism and other religious activities. Christian leaders unite to offer “solutions through sincere and proactive dialogue”.
