Unrest in South America appear to be picking up the pace with Bolivian President Evo Morales announcing new elections with no apparent palliative effect on the popular, military supported revolt against the leftist leader (archived). Similarly, rebellion in Chile has persisted long after the local USG aligned government there walked away from the transit fare hikes which triggered that civil unrest. Other governments on the continent, USG alligned and USG hostile alike, seem to have either some level of active civil unrest ongoing or ready conditions that will trigger unrest in the near future set.
Update: Evo Morales Resigned +/- a few minutes of this piece's original publication.
Uruguay's Vice President, Senator elect, and wife of former President Jose Mujica, Lucía Topolansky has promised "an enormous social mobilization" if her coalition's presidential candidate loses the November 24th Presidential election in Uruguay (archived). According to local norms this is likely to take the form of general strikes, workplace occupations, organized vandalism, intense littering, and some level of rioting.
Topolansky's Frente Amplio coalition gathered less than 40% of the vote in the legislative round of the election with most of their Senate and lower legislative seats going to Topolansky's radical Popular Participation Movement and the differently radical Communist Part of Uruguay together enjoying a dominant position in the coalition's legislative bank. Self described moderate parties within the coalition including that of their Presidential nominee won a trivial number of seats.
The Presidential candidates of all other Parties gaining more than one percent of the vote endorsed National Party candidate Luis Lacalle Pou for the presidency during their concession speeches. Per their own self representations, the Popular Participation Movement claims to do the things they do for the sake of "democracy" with their definition of democracy showing no regard for actual electoral results.
In an 8 to 10 vote, the US Federal Reserve Board of Governors has decided to lower their target federal funds rate offered to select, friendly "depository institutions" all the way down to the 1.5 to 1.75 percent range (archived). The USD had began this week falling versus the Peso Uruguayo despite a lack of local central bank action to push this movement (archived).
Turkey began operations in Syria. Immediately Kurdish militias formerly allied with the USG made peace and entered into alliance with democratically elected Syrian President Assad. So called "moderate rebels" formerly allied with the US moved into alliance with Turkey. Due to poor implementation of the US withdrawal, on occasion US troops have found themselves squeezed between former allies aligned with Assad and former allies Allied with NATO member Turkey.
The 1947 Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance appears to be breaking as the US seeks to pull all of the Americas into a Venezuelan War (archived, archived). While the treaty was invoked several times through the Cold War and most recently after 9/11, the American country of Uruguay doesn't seem to see why they should support US military action against Venezuela. Especially if the US wasn't willing to support Argentine military action against Britain in 1982.
Three weeks after the prospect of a Kirchner-Fernandez government gutted the value of the Argentine peso, current Argentine president Macri's increasingly Kirchner-esque response to the crisis has hit a new milestone (archived). The current regime has declared Argentinos may buy no more than 10,000 USD in a month and that businesses in Argentina submit their USD purchase plans to the government lest they are determined to be "hoarding" USD.
This comes after Argentina has spent 21 days actively fighting the market and exhausting its foreign currency reserves by trying to prop up the Peso Argentina's value near 60 to the USD when the market clearly understands that the Peso Argentino's value should be far lower. The remaining reserves nominally belonging to the Argentine Central Bank are encumbered as collateral for loans and almost certain to be forfeited in the coming default.
Meanwhile, publications in the Northern Argentina calling itself the US lead by Forbes had been running pieces written by Peronists explaining why Argentina can't be in as bad of a position as its behavior is forcing it into (archived). At last they had been until today when they had to admit currency controls are back.
Leftist climate stooge Franklin Foer wrote a piece in The Atlantic calling for military intervention in Brazil with the aim of usurping democratically elected President Jair Bolsonaro and seizing control of the Brazilian Amazon for an ambiguously defined "international community" (archived). Last year US-based left/Pantsuits attempted to interfere in Brazil's internal politics in the run up the the presidential election with both the New York Times and Facebook attempting to prevent Bolsonaro's democratic election.
This year, for what appear to be entirely pantsuitist political reasons, the popular media in the US and Europe have decided to panick over seasonal wildfires in the remote Amazon. European Pantsuitist leaders, citing data from Brazil's own satellites, are derailing a pending EU-Mercosur trade deal over the wildfires constituting a violation of some sort of "environmental commitments" Brazil agreed to. Other European governments including Norway's pre-emtively stopped sending Brazil aid dollars before Bolsonaro's government could attempt to mobilizing a fire fighting and containment response.
As of press time there has been no organized outrage or regime change efforts over the far more numerous wild fires currently burning in Angola under the government of João Lourenço nor the Congo under Félix Tshisekedi's government. For some reason the similarly patterned seasonal wildfires afflicting the Bolivian Amazon under the government of Evo Morales don't appear to merit calls for regime change from the "international community" either. The wildfires that routinely sweep populated areas of California including last year's Malibu blaze, where far more logistical support is available to firefighting operations than the remote Amazon, also somehow failed to produce calls for deposing the Californian government.
