It should be noted that the concert was attended by the commissioner of International Relations of the Jpsuv, Rander Peña, who emphasized that the participation of the PSUV in Chilean land represents regional unity, and denounced that “the summit Prosur is a political weapon that wants to exterminate the union of the peoples of our America. They wont be able to!”.
Next, Amanda Luna, member of the Coordinating Assembly of Secondary Students (ACES), declared that this mobilization was made in rejection of the presence of South American leaders who “apart from being icons of conservatism, lead actions against the student movement and have implemented repressive policies”.
At the same time, one of the members of the No + AFP Movement, Carolina Espinoza, said that this mobilization is “against a corrupt business alliance that demonstrates the repudiation of the installation of Prosur in Chilean lands and the presence of presidents who repress the social demands, mainly with what has to do with the demands of the feminist movement”.
