In the framework of the Bicentennial Congress of the Peoples of the World, which is held in Caracas, this Tuesday the former president of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Evo Morales, and the defender of Human Rights and former senator of Colombia, Piedad Córdoba, participated in the conference program.
The indigenous leader of South America stated that “we must remember the great struggle of the Cuban people and brother Commander Fidel Castro, but also the struggle of brother Commander Hugo Chávez. I remain convinced that Fidel and Hugo are commanders of the libertarian forces of America”.
He also pointed out that “the fight against communism has failed, because social movements continue to grow, not only in Latin America but throughout the world, as socialist or anti-imperialist movements”.
For her part, Piedad Córdoba took advantage of the space to denounce the events of repression and violence that occur in her country: “We know about the persecution and embezzlement of the Colombian Government, which does not represent its people”.
At the same time, she congratulated the participation of young people in the Bicentennial Congress of the Peoples of the World, “this shows the work that the Revolution has been doing, headed by an absolutely important man, such as President Nicolás Maduro”.
Upon his arrival in Caracas, former President Morales thanked the Bolivarian people and Government for the invitation to participate in the Bicentennial Congress and in the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Carabobo, “a historic feat for the liberation of our people”.
