The Chancellor of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, urged young people to radicalize revolutionary processes: “We are a continent in dispute. Either we are under the control of the empire, or we are under the sovereign control of the people, it is a historic struggle ” he said during a visit of the Bolivian delegation to the Ministry of Popular Power for Foreign Affairs (MPPRE), in the context of the XVIII Latin American and Caribbean Student Congress ( CLAE ).
During the political debate of the students entitled “The Democracy of the Peoples”, the Venezuelan Head of Diplomacy highlighted the importance of maintaining the spaces created in revolution, “we are committed to maintain and radicalize the revolutionary processes in our countries (…) to go to the root of problems, of the contradictions, and resolve them with the people”.
[Speaking to the students], he also insisted on the importance of defending political spaces, as trenches of thought, “politics is the right that we all have to dream of a better world and to fight to make it possible. If we want to be free, we must break the pendulum, we have to make permanent revolutions in the democratic way. ”
Before so much virulence, before so much evil against Venezuela, Arreaza called on the young people of the world to break the pendulum, beware of divisionism, to live with contradictions and overcome differences, you must keep the horizon clear to get there, said the minister, quoted in a publication of the MPPRE website.
In the same way, the Venezuelan diplomat insisted on the young people to make the Revolution by the votes, by the democratic way, with the majorities.
Legacy of Hugo Chávez
Arreaza shared with the young people some reflections on the legacy of the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez.
“It has been shown that Chávez did not die, we found him in the smile of the children, in the elders who knew the horrors of the fourth republic (…) that is something that the think tanks do not understand,” he said.
