On the night of March 9, 2017, at the Teresa Carreño Theater in Caracas, President Nicolas Maduro gathered social movements representatives of several countries, plus artists, politicians and thought leaders to close the debate workshops about the actual political scenery, in the frame of the events of the fourth anniversary of the death of the Commander Hugo Chávez.
Leaded by the Brazilian MST’s head, Joao Pedro Stedile, the social movements announced that by the end of this year there will be a meeting at Caracas with over 2.000 representatives of social movements from all around the world to discuss the paths of the struggles against oppression and neoliberalism.The encounter will be on November 7, commemorating 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
At the closing speech of the Caracas Symposium, Maduro heavily charged against the Argentinian President Mauricio Macri (“he would not resist a puff”), and against the impostor Michel Temer, who he called the “chief of a group that assaulted a government, by starting the coup that removed Dilma, and that now assaults the poorest in benefit of the richest by freezing the social spend at Brazil for 20 years”.
Maduro closed his speech displaying a video in which Peru’s president, Pedro Paulo Kucinsky, during a speech at the Princeton University, at U.S., declared the following: “The United States government is not worried about Latin America, they major concern is Middle East. For the Americans, we are like those likeable, quiet puppies that are always still, lying on the carpet and that do not represent a problem. In regard of Latin America, the U.S. are only concerned about Venezuela”.
Maduro received a standing ovation from the attendants, where were present the Generals, Brigadiers and Admirals that form part of the Main Staff at the National Bolivarian Armed Forces of Venezuela.
