In a recent article titled “The Venezuela ‘Opposition’ We Never Hear About”, Canadian journalist and author Arnold August, wrote about the real nature of the “opposition” in Venezuela. [ http://www.telesurtv.net/english/opinion/The-Venezuela-Opposition-We-Never-Hear-About-20170309-0035.html ]

In the context of a meeting of delegates of the international Network of Intellectuals, Artists and Social Movements in Defense of Humanity in Caracas, August refers to one of the speakers, the Venezuelan deputy at the National Assembly, Hector Rodríguez, who is the leader of the minority pro-Chavismo group, fact that puts him effectively on the opposition – at least in a conventional sense.

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”.

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]

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.

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.
