A Dream Deferred? The Right Wing Attack In Latin America

Nino Pagliccia

My talk given on 19 November 2016 for the World Peace Forum 2016 on Latin America.

"In this presentation I will first say a few words about the importance of foreign policy and the language used by the Empire in order to create what I call a virtual reality (a twisted reality). It is necessary to give a broad perspective before we “land” in Latin America.

Then I will give a quick review of events in Latin America.

The topic of the right wing attack on Latin America is quite extensive. I will focus on the case of Brazil and Venezuela to give a closer perspective.

Why Brazil and Venezuela? Simply, because Brazil is the latest case of a coup in Latin America, and it is representative of the new US tactic of aggression in Latin America; and Venezuela because it may well be the next in the crosshair of the United States, and we need to understand that.

I will conclude with my suggestions of what we can do as activists."

You can watch the full presentation here. Duration 1:09 including Q&A.

Trump: A carrot for Americans and a stick for non-Americans

Nino Pagliccia

The U.S. has never mastered the art of coexistence and solidarity. Those are not words used in U.S. foreign policy. But those should be our bottom line words.

Americans in general and particularly American presidents historically have been quite nationalistic, and have projected that idea to what is known as U.S.-centered policies. Even if they did not say the words “America first”, as Trump has clearly spelled them out, all the actions of U.S. presidents have always put U.S. interests first – albeit their own vision of them – at the expense of many other nations. No one can doubt that on the face of the U.S. domination in the world.

This is the first anniversary of the Cuban Revolution when Fidel Castro is not with us physically. He passed away last 25 November at the age of 90. During nine days he has been officially honoured in Cuba with visits from dignitaries and world leaders who have remembered him for his many achievements for Cubans and for humanity. Around the world, including in Canada from coast to coast, millions have celebrated his life. Many still mourn him.

Solidarity with Cuba in 2017 and beyond

Today, the movement is redefining its focus after a successful end to the long campaign to secure the release of the Cuban Five (Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, René González and Fernando González); an overwhelming victory for the island and its supporters.

The End of Ideology in Cuba?

By Arnold August

In 1960, the American sociologist and academic Daniel Bell (1919-2011) published The End of Ideology. It became a classic book in official political science. The publication was listed by Times Literary Supplement as one of the 100 most influential non-fiction books in the second half of the 20th century.

Fidel Castro: A champion of solidarity

Author:  | internet@granma.cu

We were witness to his vocation for solidarity, there following a natural disaster, an act of injustice, a people in need of healthcare, or youth desperate to study. He understood that poverty is eradicated through cooperation, not with bombs.

How old am I? Fifty-eight

For the 58th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution

Nino Pagliccia

After following many of the war tragedies that have happened and continue to happen during these last few days of 2016, I feel like I’m turning one thousand years old. Not in terms of chronological age, but in terms of accumulated weight of recurring histories of never-ending cravings and unfulfilled desires for power mostly from despotic governments and tyrants trampling on social justice – the fundamental value – that remains unachievable despite tireless popular resistance and rebellions.
