I’ve tried to understand Lenin Moreno’s attitude since he became the President of Ecuador, or even better, I’ve tried to know if his behavior since he took office is new or if it has been normal throughout his life. The answer to this question is very important. Even though Moreno betrayed President Correa, the smallest problem in all this, what is highly relevant is the pernicious nature that led him to deliberately and purposefully deceive millions of Ecuadoreans who voted for him believing he would continue the Citizen’s Revolution project started in 2007, something that significantly changed life in the country.

Ceremony inaugurating Jose Marti Statue in Washington DC

From the afternoon of July 1, 2019, four years after the announcement of the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between Havana and Washington, the Apostle stands vigilant and thoughtful in the U.S. capital. Martí’s constant concern for the independence of the Island and the continent was captured in bronze: the tired look, but alert; the serene posture; the imprint of the prison and the insatiable search for knowledge. Nothing escaped the artist’s hand. His presence at the Cuban embassy in the United States evokes the desire to bring together two peoples that are only narrowly separated by geography.
