Elecciones regionales en Venezuela: El PSUV gana por una mayoría arrolladora y la oposición se desarticula

Entrevista a Arnold August realizada por Nino Pagliccia

El Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela (PSUV), partido en el gobierno de este país, obtuvo recientemente una rotunda victoria electoral en las elecciones regionales. Las elecciones fueron convocadas por el Consejo Nacional Electoral (CNE), a solicitud de la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente (ANC). Poco después, la Mesa de la Unidad Democrática (MUD), grupo de oposición, parecía desarticularse. Enrique Capriles del partido Primero Justicia, por ejemplo, renunció a la coalición de la MUD, cuestionando a Henry Ramos Allup de Acción Democrática (AD), partido que a su vez expulsó a los cuatro Gobernadores de la AD que se atrevieron a juramentarse ante la ANC, aceptando así los resultados electorales.

“The seeds of solidarity planted for many years are growing everywhere”

The 8th biennial convention of the Canadian Network on Cuba was held in Toronto, Canada, on June 3-4, 2017. I was asked to speak on the panel titled Building Solidarity with Cuba in Canada with distinguished panelists Don Foreman of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), and Yamil Martinez of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP).

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”.

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]

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.
