Through the political instrumentalization of human rights and democracy, it is intended “to divide the world between allies of the empire and independent countries” to generate a context of a new Cold War, denounced the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro.
From the Miraflores Palace, located in Caracas, he stressed that “we do not believe in the division of the world or in the escalation of conflicts, we believe in a pluripolar, multicentric world without hegemons”.
The Dignitary advocated respect for the political diversity and identity of sovereign nations, while revalidating his confidence in the emergence of a new humanity and “a 21st century without empire, without hegemons”.
In this regard, the Executive Secretary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP), Sacha Llorenti, urged to be alert to the use of the terms of human rights, democracy and peace to confuse the population.
“Those who speak in the name of peace and do not condemn imperialism are either very naive or are accomplices because the true struggle for peace is irreducibly anti-imperialist, anti-colonial, anti-capitalist and anti-patriarchal”, Llorenti pointed out.
Regarding the World Congress of Peoples for Peace, which addressed the need for popular democracy in the face of the multidimensional crisis, he pointed out that it represents an opportunity for the unity of the will of the independent peoples, “those who refuse to be on our knees and subdued by new colonial forms”.
“We are not afraid of any hegemon in this world. We are on our feet and prepared for the battles that have to be fought”, he emphasized.
