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.

From July 25-28 the XXV Sao Paulo Forum took place in Caracas, Venezuela, with the participation of 190 organizations, political parties, social movements, workers’ movements, parliamentarians and intellectuals from Latin America, the Caribbean and several continents.
The date chosen for this historic meeting had a symbolic character to it. During those four days a number of coinciding historical events were celebrated such as the birth of the Liberator Simón Bolívar, the assault on the Moncada Barracks that marked the beginning of the Cuban revolution and the 65th anniversary of the birth of Commander Hugo Chávez.
