Latin America – Key player in a multipolar world

Latin America may not have the military clout, but it has three major assets needed to challenge the United States: political will, economic resources, and a key strategic position as the U.S. “backyard”.

Nino Pagliccia

The main focus of world politics is still on U.S. president Donald Trump and it will continue to be for a while in part due to his outspoken (at times unpredictable) personality, but mostly because he does happen to have his finger on the nuclear, financial and political trigger of the Empire. That finger may well set off what have already been called “Trumpquakes”. [1][2]

Statement of the 15th Meeting of the Network in Defense of Humanity; “Emancipatory Communication or Colonized Homelands”

The Network of Intellectuals, Artists, and Social Movements in Defense of Humanity expresses its solidarity with the people and the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in these moments when the sponsors of the media war and terrorism against Venezuela, Cuba and the ALBA countries have been renewed and intensified their interventionist intentions by trying to destabilize them as part of the imperial policy of "regime change" in countries considered hostile to the diplomacy of war coming from Washington.

Take Action on Cuba Policy NOW!

We have received the following call to action from the Latin America Working Group based in Washington, DC. The action is mostly for USAmericans but we post it in full to share the information. 

Dear Cuba supporter,

It’s been four weeks since Donald Trump took office, and we’ve yet to hear what his administration plans to do regarding Cuba policy. The administration says they are doing a “review” of Cuba policy and President Obama’s policy changes. But at this point, we don’t know whether to believe that or not.

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.
