Bolivia announces the “end of Coca Cola and capitalism” for December 21

December 21, the austral summer solstice, will mark the end of Coca Cola and capitalism and the start of a new cosmic era of community spirit and love, announced Bolivia’s Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca.

Foreign minister Choquehuanca anticipates a new cosmic era of community spirit and love

According to the head of Bolivian diplomacy on that day marked by the Mayan calendar as the end of an era, will not be the end of the world as affirmed by some prophecies, but rather the beginning of a new life full of changes and respect for Mother Earth.

For this reason the Bolivian government is preparing a special ceremony to celebrate the summer solstice day in the Titicaca Lake shared by Bolivia and Peru at an altitude of 4.080 metres above sea level.

That day “will also mark the end of egoism, of division, it must be the end of Coca Cola” and the beginning of “mocochinchi” (a pop drink made out of dried peaches) and of “willcaparu” (a corn refreshment).

According to the “long counting” Maya calendar on 21 December 2012 will be the end of a civilization and the beginning of another one that implies spiritual transition towards a new cosmic conscience.

The first of the seven Mayan prophecies says that on that day humanity will have to choose between disappearing as a thinking species which threatens to destroy the planet, or evolve towards the harmonic integration with the entire universe.

For Choquehuanca that day will signal “the end of the Macha, the end of hatred, the end of capitalism” and the beginning of “la Pacha, the start of love, of community spirit”. The Foreign minister announced that to welcome Pacha the Bolivian government is preparing a ceremony in the island of the Sun with the attendance of 50.000 indigenous members from different countries.

Choquehuanca made the announcements during a ceremony next to President Evo Morales and Vice-president Alvaro García in which a contract was signed to construct an airport in Copacabana, the main Catholic sanctuary of Bolivia, 120 kilometres west of La Paz.

Great prediction, hope it comes true =) Whether you literally believe these prophecies or not (I'm skeptical), “humanity will have to choose between disappearing as a thinking species which threatens to destroy the planet, or evolve towards the harmonic integration with the entire universe” is about right

To herald the “start of a new cosmic era of community spirit and love”, the Bolivian “government” is stealing someone's property. That'll be a good sign....not!

Bolivia's Evo Morales is another coke head latin american dictator crook. He acts like he has his backward hilbilly nation's best interest in mind, but just like Cristina Rat Kirchner and Monkey Hugo Chavez, their real interest is to opress the people and steal their money!

Evolve towards the harmonic integration with the entire universe

We may remind you old chap,

We don’t even have a fully working space station, let alone a star ship enterprise.

And we won’t get it by December 21st,

It's hard to believe that someone who holds such a high ranking position can be so bonkers, I mean this is approaching the level of craziness as Cretina and tinman.

How utterly bizarre!

I find most of the comments (besides #1) to contain ignorance, stupidity, utter and complete lack of compassion and cultural understanding, as well as a heavy dose of colonial domination. I am embarrassed for all of you.
