Phiilip GoldbergPhilip Seth Goldberg
Chargé d'Affairs, US Embassy, Cuba

New Havana Embassy chief Goldberg expelled from Bolivia for supporting a white separatist movement, 12/6/17

Trump has named Philip Goldberg as Chargé d'Affairs at the US Havana Embassy, a position that doesn't require Senate confirmation. However, he will have to be accepted by the Cuban government. What can we expect from this new career State Department officeer? Goldberg was expelled as US ambassador to Bolivia by Evo Morales in 2008 for meeting with politicians and officials allied with a paramilitary group, Unión Juvenil Cruceñista (UCJ), which was in open rebellion against the government and killing indigenous people:

Errores por desesperación  8/31/2008 Rebelión: "Simultaneously, the UCJ thugs attacked police and beat people with dark complexions, while prefect Rubén Costa, the self-described "governor," wanted to take control of the departmental police, in order to recruit those thugs."

BOLIVIA: Deaths in the Amazon  9/13/2008 IPS: "The Bolivian government declared martial law in the northern province of Pando after as many as 15 indigenous supporters of President Evo Morales were killed by rightwing protesters near the town of Cobija."

Pando province is part of the eastern "crescent" of 4 provinces that make up the eastern gas rich region: Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Beni, Pando and Tarija provinces.

The UCJ is a white movement from the largely white eastern part of the country where the gas wealth lies. The rest of the country is heavily indigenous:

Bolivia expels US ambassador Philip Goldberg  9/12/2008 Telegraph, UK: "Mr Goldberg last week infuriated President Morales when he met with Ruben Costas, the governor of Bolivia's richest province, that of Santa Cruz, which wants autonomy and has threatened secession. Santa Cruz is predominantly white, whilst the capital La Paz, set in the highlands, is more indigenous."

The backbone of the white supremacists comes from a group of Croatian immigrants, many of whose families came after WW II and are likely to have been Croatian Nazis, or Ustashe. Branko

Autonomy Vote Threatens to Pull Bolivia Apart  5/5/2008 Democracy Now: "JIM SHULTZ: Well, Santa Cruz is a region of the country that’s — you know, it’s much whiter, it’s much less indigenous, it’s more affluent, and there is this network of wealthy landowners that really drive the politics of the region. A number of them come from the families of Croatian immigrants that came here during the period and afterwards of World War II, and there is a real power base. And so, you have a very small number of families. You know, it looks like Central America. It looks like Salvador, where you have a very small number of families controlling a vast tract of land. And they really were the driving force."

Croatia: Morales murder plot suspect 'wanted to form separatist army'  4/22/2009 ADN Kronos: "Morales said they were members of a gang planning to kill him and several other officials. The Bolivian press linked the plotters to an opposition leader in Santa Cruz, Branko Marinkovic, who is also of Croatian descent."

Bolivia terror plot: The Rózsa-Marinkovic “Ustasha Connection”  9/5/2009 News of the Restless: "The investigation opened with testimonies by two of the Rózsa cell’s mercenaries who had been captured alive, the Hungarian Elöd Tóásó, and the Bolivian-Hungarian Mario Tadic, as well as a local contact, Ignacio Villa Vargas, “The Old Man”. Local analysts deduced that this group of veterans of the Yugoslav, Croatian and African wars, were contacted in Bolivia by “fascist Croats, connected with the fascist right-wing in Santa Cruz.”

These are the people behind Ruben Costas, who Goldberg met with:

Bolivia: implican a líderes de Santa Cruz  5/5/2009 BBC Mundo: "El fiscal que investiga el caso, Marcelo Sosa, ofreció una conferencia de prensa en La Paz, en la que dijo que, según las declaraciones de los testigos, los líderes de Santa Cruz financiaron las actividades de la supuesta banda separatista. El fiscal aseguró que, además de Costas, estarían involucrados el ex presidente del Comité Pro Santa Cruz, Branko Marinkovic; el presidente de la Federación de Ganaderos de Santa Cruz, Guido Nayar; el presidente de los empresarios, Pedro Llovió y el ex presidente de la Cámara Agropecuaria del Oriente, Mauricio Roca, además de otros líderes."

Santa Cruz was also the seat of "la mafia Cruceña", a cocaine trafficking organization that was behind the 1980 Cocaine Coup in Bolivia which featured CIA backed WWII Nazi Klaus Barbie.

Goldberg never addressed his support of the white separatists in several milk toast explanations of how he came to be expelled from Bolivia:

U.S. envoy: I didn't incite Bolivian violence  9/18/2008 CNN: "Goldberg maintained that he held similar meetings with European diplomats that generated no controversy and that Morales' attack on the United States is part of his political strategy." [Presumably, these European diplomats were not in open rebellion against their government.]

Prior to Bolivia, Goldberg already had a career as a specialist in ethnic conflicts and was posted to the Balkans where he did his best to exploit them on behalf of the US:

From Pristina to La Paz: Expelled US Ambassador to Bolivia had been in charge of Kosovo Secession  1/17/2007 Global Research: "On July 13, 2006, the journalist for El Deber of Santa Cruz, Leopoldo Vegas, published a report indicating that “in the view of three political scientists interviewed after learning about the White House’s decision, the experience acquired by Goldberg in eastern Europe which produced ethnic conflict after the separation of the former Yugoslavia can be used in Bolivia, using as an opportunity the changes that the government itself is trying to introduce.”

In the white supremacist Trump era, will he try and pursue similar aims if confirmed by the Senate?

The US government is shameless about trying to play the race card, even today under Trump and the sway of the white supremacist Bannon, whose publication Breitbart offers the only private sector US coverage of racialized US paid dissidents in Cuba, such as the CIR, Comité por la Integración Racial:

‘We Cannot Dissent’: Black Cubans Denounce Racism Under Communist Rule  3/23/2017 Breitbart

Report: White-Controlled Castro Regime Systematically Oppressing Black Cubans  10/31/2017 Breitbart: "The Spain-based Diario de Cuba details the accusations in “Denial, Exclusion, and Repression,” a report by the Citizens’ Committee for Racial Integration (CIR), a dissident group dedicated to exposing the oppression of racial minorities under communism in Cuba." [What this white supremacist site fails to mention is that the CIR and Diario de Cuba are funded by NED and the Miami Plantocracy. Communism has very little to do with racism in Cuba, which existed long before 1959 and is much more influenced by French Republican ideals.]

So yes, we can be on the watch for Goldberg to play the ethnic separatism card, a mainstay of his career.

We should not be too surprised, as Trump was basically elected with white supremacy as the major motivating factor and his minions are insuring that this theme is carried out throughout the federal government.

-- Mike Perez, Miami

Addendum: Spain’s ex-president José María Aznar as Goldberg ally, 12/9/17

We note that Evo Morales has implicated former president José María Aznar of Spain's right wing Popular Party in the eastern provinces' rebellion

The Ambassador of Ethnic Cleansing  5/3/2008 Machetera: "Last year, President Morales denounced the conspiracy by the United States and the oligarchy in his country against his government, during the Seventeenth Ibero-American Summit in Santiago de Chile. He also said that the “most plausible theory about the identity of the promoters of this initiative, leads to industrialists and landowners, acting with the support of various politicians from the departments of Santa Cruz, Beni and Pando.” The correlation through the meetings of Bolivian putschists and Spain’s Popular Party, in support of a “dirty war” was laid bare. He also denounced the support of fascist Spaniards and other Europeans for the conspiracy, under the obvious leadership of Spain’s ex-president José María Aznar."

Aznar is known throughout Latin America for his investments in oppressive projects that continue the Spanish conquistador traditions. In Honduras, he is financing the Canadian mafia's illegal seizure of Garifuna lands.

El nueve jefe de la embajada habanera Goldberg expulsado de Bolivia por apoyar a un movimiento separatista blanco, 6/12/2017

Bolivia, Phillip Goldberg "Limpieza Etnica" Santa Cruz. INF
Trump nombró a Philip Goldberg como Encargado de Asuntos en la Embajada de La Habana en Estados Unidos, cargo que no requiere la confirmación del Senado. Sin embargo, deberá ser aceptado por el gobierno cubano. ¿Qué podemos esperar de este nuevo oficinista de carrera del Departamento de Estado? Goldberg fue expulsado como embajador de Estados Unidos en Bolivia por Evo Morales en 2008 por reunirse con políticos y funcionarios aliados con un grupo paramilitar, Unión Juvenil Cruceñista (UCJ), que se encontraba en rebelión abierta contra el gobierno y asesinando a indígenas:

Errores por desesperación  8/31/2008 Rebelión: "De manera simultánea, los matones de la UCJ agredían a policías y golpeaban a gente de tez morena, en tanto el prefecto Rubén Costa, autocalificado de “gobernador”, quiso tomar el control de la policía departamental, a fin de reclutar a esos violentos."

BOLIVIA: Deaths in the Amazon  9/13/2008 IPS: "The Bolivian government declared martial law in the northern province of Pando after as many as 15 indigenous supporters of President Evo Morales were killed by rightwing protesters near the town of Cobija."

La provincia de Pando es parte de la "media luna" de 4 provincias que conforman la región oriental rica en gas: las provincias de Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Beni, Pando y Tarija.

El UCJ es un movimiento blanco de la parte oriental, en su mayoría blanca, donde reside la riqueza del gas. El resto del país es muy indígena:

Santa Cruz is predominantly white, whilst the capital La Paz, set in the highlands, is more indigenous."

El apoyo principal de los supremacistas blancos proviene de un grupo de inmigrantes croatas, muchas de cuyas familias vinieron después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial -- es probable que hayan sido nazis croatas, o Ustashe:

Local analysts deduced that this group of veterans of the Yugoslav, Croatian and African wars, were contacted in Bolivia by “fascist Croats, connected with the fascist right-wing in Santa Cruz.”

Estas son las personas detrás de Ruben Costas, con quien Goldberg se reunió:

Santa Cruz también era la sede de "la mafia cruceña", una organización de tráfico de cocaína que estaba detrás del golpe de cocaína de 1980 en Bolivia, con el nazi aleman Klaus Barbie de la CIA.

Goldberg nunca abordó su apoyo a los separatistas blancos en varias explicaciones sobre cómo fue expulsado de Bolivia:

U.S. envoy: I didn't incite Bolivian violence  9/18/2008 CNN: "Goldberg maintained that he held similar meetings with European diplomats that generated no controversy and that Morales' attack on the United States is part of his political strategy." [Presumably, these European diplomats were not in open rebellion against their government.]

Antes de Bolivia, Goldberg ya tenía una carrera como especialista en conflictos étnicos y se envió a los Balcanes, donde hizo todo lo posible para explotarlos en nombre de los EE. UU .:

Philip Goldberg apoya el separatismo de Reyes  1/19/2007 Rebelión: "El 13 de julio del 2006, el periodista de El Deber de Santa Cruz Leopoldo Vegas publicó un reportaje indicando que “en criterio de tres politólogos consultados después de conocer la decisión de la Casa Blanca, la experiencia que adquirió Goldberg en la región del este europeo donde se produjeron luchas étnicas después de la separación de la ex Yugoslavia puede ser utilizada en Bolivia, en ocasión de los cambios que pretende introducir el actual Gobierno”."

En la era de la supremacía blanca de Trump, ¿tratará de perseguir objetivos similares si es confirmado por el Senado?

El gobierno de los EE. UU. es desvergonzado como intenta jugar la carta de la raza incluso hoy bajo Trump y la influencia de Bannon, cuya publicación Breitbart ofrece la única cobertura mediatica de los EE.UU. del sector privado sobre los disidentes racializados en Cuba, como el CIR, Comité por la Integración Racial
:

Communism has very little to do with racism in Cuba, which existed long before 1959 and is much more influenced by French Republican ideals.]

Así que sí, podemos estar atentos a que Goldberg juegue la carta del separatismo étnico, uno de los pilares de su carrera.

No deberíamos sorprendernos demasiado, ya que Trump fue elegido básicamente con la supremacía blanca como el mayor factor de motivación y sus subordinados están asegurando que este tema se lleve a cabo en todo el gobierno federal.

Addendum: el ex presidente español José María Aznar como aliado de Goldberg, 9/12/17

Observamos que Evo Morales ha implicado al ex presidente José María Aznar de España del Partido Popular derechista  en la rebelión de las provincias orientales. 

Bolivia: Mal momento para errores inocentes  5/3/2008 Rebelión: "El año pasado el presidente Morales denunció las conspiraciones de Estados Unidos y la oligarquía de su país contra su gobierno, durante la XVII Cumbre Iberoamericana de Santiago de Chile. Se dijo también que "las hipótesis más atendibles sobre la identidad de los promotores de esa iniciativa conduce a Industriales y terratenientes que actuarían con el apoyo de algunos políticos de los departamentos de Santa Cruz, Beni y Pando". Quedaron al desnudo los entretelones de encuentros de los líderes golpistas de Bolivia con el Partido Popular de España para apoyar la "guerra sucia". También se denunció el apoyo a esta conspiración de fascistas españoles y otros europeos, bajo el impulso muy evidente del ex presidente José María Aznar."

Aznar es conocido en toda Latinoamérica por sus inversiones en proyectos opresivos que continúan las tradiciones de los conquistadores españoles. En Honduras, está financiando la incautación ilegítima por parte de la mafia canadiense de tierras que pertenecen al pueblo garífuna.

Nuevos pasos de Estados Unidos para posible rompimiento de relaciones con Cuba.  12/6/2017 El Heraldo Cubano: "Este diplomático [Goldberg] tiene una larga hoja de servicio especializado en los métodos defendidos por Gene Sharp, director del Instituto Albert Einstein y que pusiera en práctica en los países de Europa del Este el pasado siglo XX y más recientemente en el Medio Oriente y en Venezuela."

Philip Goldberg encabezará la embajada estadounidense en Cuba  12/5/2017 La Razon, Bolivia: "En 2008, Morales acusó entonces a Goldberg de reunirse con grupos de opositores que planteaban la autonomía departamental al margen de los parámetros constitucionales. Desde entonces se han producido acercamientos entre La Paz y Washington y se logró un acuerdo marco de entendimiento."

Exclusive: Trump names career diplomat to head Cuban embassy - sources  12/4/2017 Reuters: "He was expelled from Cuba’s socialist ally Bolivia in 2008 for what President Evo Morales claimed was fomenting social unrest… Goldberg’s other previous posts include the chief of mission in Kosovo. Most recently he has been the U.S. ambassador to the Philippines."

Philip Goldberg and the arrogance of power  12/29/2016 Manila Times: "Goldberg has a background in intelligence work. In the US state department, he served as assistant secretary of state for intelligence and research from February 16, 2010 to November 21, 2013. Rumor has it that he worked at one time for the CIA."

Destabilization: Made in USA  10/20/2015 Rebelión: "Estados Unidos impulsa un conflicto étnico con fines separatistas, luego financia a grupos armados para atizar el conflicto; posteriormente negocia la paz y finalmente organiza a un grupo de jóvenes bajo la estrategia de desobediencia civil para desacreditar a un gobernante que no responde a sus intereses y logra removerlo del cargo. Le llamaron la Revolución de Terciopelo. En todo este proceso uno de sus principales operadores fue Philip Goldberg."

Bolivia expels US ambassador Philip Goldberg  10/24/2014 VNN: "In 2009, under the country’s first indigenous president a new constitution declared Bolivia a plurinational state – ending centuries of undeclared apartheid. Opponents in the oil-rich eastern region launched a civil disobedience movement, confronting the east against the poorer, indigenous majority who support President Evo Morales. Critics denounced the president’s fiery socialist rhetoric and the nationalisation of Bolivia’s oil and gas industry in the poorest and most undeveloped nation in South America. Five years later, from the World Bank to the IMF, Evo Morales is getting full marks for overseeing an unprecedented transformation of Bolivia. Spurred by high commodity prices, economic growth is now the highest in the region."

State Department Secret Letter Warned: Don’t Release CIA Torture Report  4/4/2014 Daily Beast: "A senior Senate aide told The Daily Beast that the Rubio-Risch statement referred to a June 2013 classified letter to senators signed by Philip Goldberg, who at the time served as the State Department’s top intelligence official. The warning was in reference to the fact that the report contains information about cooperation with foreign intelligence agencies and the existence of still-undisclosed CIA “black site” prisons in foreign countries where abuses may have occurred. The letter warned of risks if proper security precautions were not taken."

State Department Official Freaks Out That Declassifying CIA Torture Report Might Make The World Angry  4/4/2014 Tech Dirt: "This raised some eyebrows, since the Obama administration has consistently said it supported declassification, even as the CIA was fighting it. Still, it's rare that the State Department would actively contradict the White House. However, the Daily Beast now has more details on the State Department's desire to block the declassification: A senior Senate aide told The Daily Beast that the Rubio-Risch statement referred to a June 2013 classified letter to senators signed by Philip Goldberg, who at the time served as the State Department’s top intelligence official. The warning was in reference to the fact that the report contains information about cooperation with foreign intelligence agencies and the existence of still-undisclosed CIA “black site” prisons in foreign countries where abuses may have occurred."

His Excellency Philip S. Goldberg  11/21/2013 Washington Diplomat: "Philip S. Goldberg was sworn in as U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines on November 21, 2013. From June 2010, he served served as the Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Intelligence and Research. Prior to 2010 he served concurrently as the Coordinator for Implementation of UNSC Resolution 1874 on North Korea. Goldberg served as Ambassador to Bolivia (2006-2008), Chief of Mission in Pristina, Kosovo (2004-2006) and Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Santiago, Chile (2001-2004)."

On Branko Marinkovic  2/13/2013 WikiLeaks: "On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered "global intelligence" company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations."

Bolivia terror plot: The Rózsa-Marinkovic “Ustasha Connection”  9/5/2009 News of the Restless: "The investigation opened with testimonies by two of the Rózsa cell’s mercenaries who had been captured alive, the Hungarian Elöd Tóásó, and the Bolivian-Hungarian Mario Tadic, as well as a local contact, Ignacio Villa Vargas, “The Old Man”. Local analysts deduced that this group of veterans of the Yugoslav, Croatian and African wars, were contacted in Bolivia by “fascist Croats, connected with the fascist right-wing in Santa Cruz.”

Croatia: Morales murder plot suspect 'wanted to form separatist army'  4/22/2009 ADN Kronos: "Morales said they were members of a gang planning to kill him and several other officials. The Bolivian press linked the plotters to an opposition leader in Santa Cruz, Branko Marinkovic, who is also of Croatian descent."

Bolivian leader doesn't regret expelling U.S. ambassador  4/22/2009 CNN: ""I don't regret having expelled the ambassador, Mr. Goldberg," Morales said in an exclusive interview Wednesday with CNN en Español. "And now, with the events we are seeing and we are finding, it is confirmed that he was conspiring against the government, conspiring against the national territory. He is an expert in dividing countries, with external groups and in Bolivia.""

U.S. Diplomat Tells Why He Was Ousted From Bolivia  9/19/2008 Newsweek: "What happened was that one of our security officers went to brief Peace Corps workers on security [measures] in Bolivia. During the course of that briefing he started going into areas that are ordinarily reserved for direct American employees—which the Peace Corps are not—basically telling them to be careful about third country people who might want to take advantage of them. He should not have gone over that ground, but it was not a request for them to do anything. And this has been blown up way out of proportion."

U.S. envoy: I didn't incite Bolivian violence  9/18/2008 CNN: "Goldberg maintained that he held similar meetings with European diplomats that generated no controversy and that Morales' attack on the United States is part of his political strategy." [Presumably, these European diplomats were not in open rebellion against their government.]

Santa Cruz is predominantly white, whilst the capital La Paz, set in the highlands, is more indigenous."

Bolivia: A Coup in the Making?  9/11/2008 NACLA: "One indication of the seriousness of the situation is that Morales just announced that US ambassador Philip Goldberg is no longer welcome in Bolivia and will be asked officially to leave the country in the coming hours. Morales accused Goldberg of meeting with the oppositional prefects (governors) of the five departments in rebellion, to help coordinate what has become a full-scale destabilization campaign."

Evo declara "persona no grata" al embajador de EE.UU. y le pide que se vaya del país  9/10/2008 Bolpress: "A pesar de la advertencia, Goldberg visitó luego a la prefecta de Chuquisaca Savina Cuellar, aliada del movimiento cívico empresarial autonomista, y se supo que también se reunió con los prefectos opositores de Beni, Pando y Tarija. Legisladores del MAS acusaron al embajador de Estados Unidos de financiar el golpe de estado cívico prefectural que amenaza con fracturar la integridad territorial de Bolivia."

Coup? What coup?  9/10/2008 Machetera: "The Bolivian government informs the national and international community that in the capital city of the Department of Santa Cruz, a civil coup d’etat headed by Civic Committee President Branco Marinkovic, with the blessing of Prefect Rubén Costas, has begun.  The Executive Branch will not respond to “provocations by fascist groups” and will defend democracy and national unity, without declaring a state of siege in the troubled areas."

Comenzó el golpe fascista en Santa Cruz, denuncia el gobierno boliviano  9/10/2008 Bolpress: "Estudiantes, activistas de la Unión Juvenil Cruceñista (UCJ) y lumpen de los grupos de choque del movimiento cívico empresarial de Santa Cruz asaltaron este martes las oficinas de Impuestos Internos, Instituto Nacional de Reforma Agraria (INRA) y la Empresa Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (ENTEL). Los delincuentes robaron computadoras, televisores, equipos telefónicos y otros bienes públicos, y quemaron muebles y documentación. Apalearon a conscriptos y policías que custodiaban los bienes del Estado. Luego de destruir entidades públicas estatizadas hace poco; los unionistas incendiaron las oficinas del Centro de Estudios Jurídicos y Sociales (CEJIS). Además, activistas de la UJC quemaron las instalaciones de Radio Patria Nueva y asaltaron las oficinas de Televisión Boliviana Canal 7 en Santa Cruz y robaron equipos. Obligaron a Radio Alternativa a suspender emisiones e intimidaron a otros medios no alineados con el autonomismo patronal, tal y como ocurrió la semana pasada en Cobija, donde cuatro radioemisoras tuvieron que interrumpir su trabajo en resguardo de la integridad física de sus periodistas."

Anti-Morales protests hit Bolivia  9/10/2008 BBC: "Hundreds of people raided the state-run telecommunications company, the tax agency, the local state TV network and the land reform institute in the city of Santa Cruz. Clashes broke out between the protesters and riot police, who were forced to take cover. Trouble also flared in the provinces of Beni, Pando, and Tarija as opposition activists raided public buildings."

Errores por desesperación  8/31/2008 Rebelión: "Marincovic siempre exigió la expulsión del Instituto Nacional de Reforma Agraria (INRA), alentó a la Unión Juvenil Cruceñista (UCJ) e impulsó estatutos autonómicos que buscan la fractura del país. Su apoyo hoy se reduce al de otros oligarcas, como los Monasterios, Dabdou, Céspedes y Kuljis, varios de los cuales controlan los medios de comunicación más influyente del país. Antes del referéndum revocatorio del 10 de agosto, los cívicos convocaron a una huelga de hambre, cuyo fracaso, agrandado por los resultados de esa consulta, fue encubierto con el llamado a un bloqueo de caminos, que Marincovic pretendió que sea acatado en cinco departamentos. Tuvieron que recordarle que estaba confundiendo a Chuquisaca y Tarija con la mencionada laguna. De manera simultánea, los matones de la UCJ agredían a policías y golpeaban a gente de tez morena, en tanto el prefecto Rubén Costa, autocalificado de “gobernador”, quiso tomar el control de la policía departamental, a fin de reclutar a esos violentos."

US Bolivia ambassador partitioned Bosnia not Yugoslavia  5/22/2008 Mihalis Balkan Analysis: "I have been involved in socialist politics since I protested the US war on Vietnam when I was 13. I lived in Greece during the Yugoslav crisis, joining anti-nationalist leftists defending Macedonian rights. This and my involvement with Palestine solidarity led me to solidarise with the Bosnian Muslim victims of genocide. This blog opposes the chauvinist terror launched by the Serbian regime, aiming to correct the wrong views of certain leftists, while also opposing imperial terror in 1999."

A number of them come from the families of Croatian immigrants that came here during the period and afterwards of World War II, and there is a real power base. And so, you have a very small number of families. You know, it looks like Central America. It looks like Salvador, where you have a very small number of families controlling a vast tract of land. And they really were the driving force."

The Ambassador of Ethnic Cleansing  5/3/2008 Machetera: "When he arrived in Bolivia, the Croatian businessmen (his friends) settled in Santa Cruz, had already put together the movement “Nación Camba,” one of whose main leaders – with business ties in Chile and other countries – Branco Marinkovic, ended up leading the local Civic Committee, the foremost promoter of destabilization, with a strong influence throughout the rest of the Media Luna, where the country’s greatest natural resources are concentrated. The ambassador did not hide his support for the businessmen who sought an unusual governmental autonomy for Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Beni, Pando and Tarija, in the country’s eastern portion."

Bolivia: Mal momento para errores inocentes  5/3/2008 Rebelión: "Cuando llegó a Bolivia, en Santa Cruz los empresarios croatas allí afincados (sus amigos) ya tenían conformado el movimiento "Nación Camba", uno de cuyos principales dirigentes- con lazos empresariales en Chile y otros países- Branco Marinkovic, terminó dirigiendo el Comité Cívico del lugar, el mayor promotor de la desestabilización, con fuerte influencia en el resto de la Media Luna donde se concentran las mayores riquezas del país. El embajador no oculta su apoyo a los empresarios que pretenden la insólita autonomía gubernamental de Santa Cruz de la Sierra , Beni, Pando y Tarija, al oriente del país."
