"The Bolivian people, the Indigenous groups, and educational organizations raised their voice of protest today," the COB Secretary-General Juan Carlos Huarachi said in La Paz.
One of the demonstrators' main calls is the definitive confirmation of the general elections for September 6.
"We ask for a democratically elected government that resolves the country's economic and health crisis caused by COVID-19," Huarachi added, adding that citizens also demand the resignation of the Education Minister Victor Hugo Cardenas.
"Cardenas is a liar. Our education system is not inclusive, it lacks methodology, and requires investment in both distance learning and virtual learning," the COB leader assured.
Thousands of teachers also gathered at the government's headquarters in La Paz to launch slogans such as "Cardenas, resign" and "Coup-born government".
