Morales’s words came as Bolivia became a non-permanent member of the Security Council for the third time — the other spanning 1964-1965 and 1978-1979.

The people’s rights to development

He also took to Twitter to send further messages of Bolivia’s hope, writing that the world must “work together to secure the people’s rights to development, and to fight capitalism which tries to commodify everything.”

Bolivia was incorporated as a non-permanent member on Sunday along with Ethiopia, Italy, Kazakhstan and Sweden.
