Bolivian President Evo Morales gave the annual address Friday as he also marked the 10th anniversary of his administration and six years since the foundation of the Plurinational State of Bolivia.

Morales recalled that under the “neoliberal governments” in 2002, he was expelled from parliament and accused of being a terrorist and drug trafficker, but he said lies can not be hidden and so the people elected him as president.

“Change is hard sometimes, but its necessary,” Morales said, adding that “Peace can only be achieved through social justice.”

The country’s first indigenous head of state gave a detailed report on the 10 years of progressive government. He spoke about the advances in tax collection and the increase in people’s purchasing power.
