La Paz (AFP) - Bolivia on Wednesday renounced a visa exemption agreement with Israel in protest over its offensive in Gaza, and declared it a terrorist state.
President Evo Morales announced the move during a talk with a group of educators in the city of Cochabamba.
It “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” he said.
The treaty has allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia without a visa since 1972.
Morales said the Gaza offensive shows “that Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”
More than two weeks of fighting in Gaza have left 1,300 dead and 6,000 wounded amid an intense Israeli air and ground campaign in response to missile attacks by the Islamist militant group Hamas.
In the latest development, 20 people were killed after two Israeli shells slammed into a United Nations school, drawing international protests.
Bolivia broke off diplomatic relations with Israel in 2009 over a previous military operation in Gaza.
In mid-July, Morales filed a request with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to prosecute Israel for “crimes against humanity.”

Winners of POPCAP’14 Announced
Léonard Pongo is a photographer from Belgium, who is one of the 5 Winners of POPCAP’14. Léonard won the award for the 2013 series titled, The Uncanny.
"The Uncanny" is a documentary project conducted in Congo DR in the provinces of Kinshasa, Bas-Congo, Bandundu, Kasaï, and Katanga since the political elections of Fall 2011. It was carried out by accompanying family members, political personalities, religious leaders and local TV in order to document the events that rhythm the life of the country‘s inhabitant and try to understand the congolese society and accidentally recovering part of my own identity.
This story brings a vision of the country experienced from within. It tries to show the collateral impact of the war instead of the direct hits. My need to see my country from a different point of view than the often depicted crises, combined with the openness of people to share their most intimate moments with me, and my willingness to be accepted as part of their lives, allowed me to depict my country intimately and subjectively, not trying to deliver a truth, but striving to understand people‘s realities and to reconstruct my own.
why do i like this so much?

Seeing the two women, [Vanda’s character Clotilde and real life-named Clotilde Montron], together in Pedro Costa’s Ossos is striking – the unkempt unwashed hair, the ungroomed eyebrows, the upper lip hair, lack of even natural cinematic makeup – help establish the elements of realism. Both are gender ambiguous to the typical spectator, illustrating the expectancy of gender performance for women in cinema, as well as the expectation of the operation of the gender binary (women are clearly demarcated as “feminine” cis females). I would even say that Vanda’s challenging of this expectation is what makes her so “dangerous” [as Costa described her]. This refreshing imagery, coupled with the unapologetic look of confidence Duarte exudes when Clotilde and Tina dress for work as housemaids, reinforces why Duarte is so magnetic and fascinating to observe. The contrast of her more delicately-featured friend does nothing to deter her confidence, which makes the description “total lack of respect” further apply to gendered beauty standards. More than this, Vanda represents a woman often not seen in cinema: a woman unconcerned with expected gender performance and appearance.
