More than 30 Latin American and Caribbean social and popular movements expressed their support and solidarity for the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela on Tuesday, during an act held in Argentina, regarding the VII Summit of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which took place on January 24 in the city of Buenos Aires.
From the Association of State Workers, representatives of the organized communities expressed their support for the Venezuelan people in the face of foreign threats. The Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Yván Gil, was received by the members of the movements with great enthusiasm, reported a note of the Ministry for Communication and Information.
The Bolivarian Revolution came to transform
During his speech, Foreign Minister Yván Gil stressed that the Bolivarian Revolution is an anti-imperialist movement and it came to transform the foundations that tried to dominate the peoples.
“The Bolivarian Revolution has an identity, we are an anti-imperialist movement, which came to transform the bases that had been built seeking to dominate the people,” he said.
The Chancellor was emphatic in warning about the need to confront the neo-fascist plan, “it is about the struggle of national interests, popular interests and the interests of fascism. That is the closest confrontation we have,” indicated a message from the Simón Bolívar Institute on its account on the social network Twitter.
Likewise, Gil specified before the present movements that the Venezuelan people are willing to defend the values and principles of the Bolivarian Revolution.
In this sense, he rejected the claims and attacks that the extreme right undertakes against Venezuela, for which he called to stay united.
They evoke the teachings of Hugo Chávez
For her part, Blanca Eekhout, deputy for the National Assembly (AN), who was also present at the event, highlighted the socialist character of the Venezuelan people “because we have faced sanctions and blockades that seek to stop our economy.”
When carrying out a historical account of the Bolivarian process, Eekhout evoked the thought and teachings of the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez, the note referred.
