HAVANA, Cuba, Jul 17 (ACN) The President of Bolivia, Evo Morales Ayma said on Tuesday in Havana that the best tribute to the leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro is unity among the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Bolivian President dedicated his speech to Fidel at the special plenary of the Sao Paulo Forum which wound up in Havana on Tuesday with the participation of over 600 representatives of Political Parties and Left Movements in the region, Africa, Asia and Europe.
Fidel is the first and solidarity leader, “who thought in giving what he had and not what is left over to the peoples of the world in health and education”, he said.
He recalled when he was invited to the Forum in 1991, “meetings that contributed to the liberation processes in Latin America and the Caribbean”, and highlighted the role of Fidel in regional unity.
Evo recalled the long speeches of Fidel in the Forum where he spoke about the urgency in offering education and health to the peoples.
During his speech, the first indigenous Head of State in Bolivia, called out to never give up and remember that “the true enemy of humanity, the land and poor, explorer of the workers” is the President of the United States, Donald Trump.
The Bolivian leader affirmed there is more consciousness today in the social movements and urged to never surrender to principles, or give in to the imperial power “because if the right wing sector returns the social and economic situation in the country returns to the past”.
No one can understand how in these complex times, any South American nation would want to become a NATO member, an entity that means war, intervention, massacre of the peoples and looting of its national resources, he said.
Morales Ayma expressed optimism that the peoples will soon react and return the power to the left parties and progressive movements.
Also participating in the closing session were the President of the Council of State and Ministers Miguel Diaz-Canel, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Salvadoran Sanchez Ceren in addition to former Brazilian Head of State Dilma Rouseff and Honduran Manuel Zelaya.
