The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) denounces the refusal of Italy, France, Spain and Portugal to permit the Bolivian presidential aircraft to land or fly over their territories on July 2. President Evo Morales was returning from Russia where he attended the second summit of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum. Short of fuel, the plane was forced to land in Vienna, Austria where it was boarded and searched, using the pretext that the plane could be transporting the former CIA agent, Edward Snowden.
