Five years have gone by without the physical presence of Commander Hugo Chávez and, without exaggeration, Latin America has completely changed. Once again, it resembles the situation that Simon Bolívar wrote about with a heavy heart: a continent enslaved by the greed of the United States.
Chávez’ passing away (or his murder at the command of the Washington hawks) meant for Latin America such a big involution in such a short amount of time, that sometimes it seems that we’re having a bad dream. As in the times of the colonies, when we were ruled by the King’s minions, we have representatives of the Empire in the presidential seats of our countries: Macri, Temer, Cartes, Santos, Peña Nieto. Following the commands of the OAS, the United States, the Group of Lima and Trump, they are using their power to undermine the achievements made by the peoples of Latin America in the first part of the 21st century.
In this context, the legacy of Chavez (like Fidel Castro and Evo Morales) is growing in such a way that it gives us strength to keep trying to turn around this scenario of death that is capitalism and believe once again in making a second emancipatory revolution.Learn More
