This Wednesday, March 15, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro announced, “The times of the empires are over; the times of the people have arrived for now and forever” in a virtual speech broadcast at the Communist Party of China (CPC) in Dialogue with World Political Parties High-level Meeting, the main theme of which is: The Road to Modernization: Responsibility of Political Parties.
President Maduro proposed “building a community with a common destiny” that restores world balance, in reference to Chinese President Xi Jinping’s strategy of building an international environment on the basis of cooperation. “Let no one doubt that the time has come for the articulation of a new world, which we call multipolar,” Maduro added, addressing representatives of political parties from all around the world.
He noted that this new world deserves a high level of awareness, leadership, dialogue, coordination, effort, and perseverance to pursue the correct path of building a civilization that allows the diversity of people and the planet to thrive. President Maduro reported his participation in the conference through a video posted via his social media.

Community of common destiny
President Maduro stated that he supports Chinese President Xi Jinping’s proposal, titled the Global Civilization Initiative, to “garden of world civilizations flourish.” “Now the time has come for the people to build alternative models to the savagery of capitalism,” President Maduro said.
“Count on the full support of Venezuela,” added the president, “of our people, for the effort to build a civilization where we all fit, as our indigenous peoples say, to live by living (vivir viviendo), of humankind.”
“We must work together to protect the reforms made to establish the new global governance system,” Chinese President Xi Jinping said earlier at the forum, “toward an international order, toward a most just and reasonable course.” President Xi advocated “a modernization where the people have the right to a voice based in their own realities,” promoting the development of a global and multipolar human society.
Venezuela resists and stands
President Nicolás Maduro further noted during his speech that Venezuela has resisted and is standing, victorious, and advancing on the path, of independence and peace against US and European aggression.
“Venezuela has been the victim of permanent aggression in recent years,” Maduro said. “Our people with great awareness have resisted these attacks, these aggressions, and we have gone from an intense—and sometimes painful—stage of resistance to a stage of growth that must lead to a stage of development and economic and social prosperity for our people.”
He mentioned how the resistance of the people who seek peace and development is tested, ignoring the diversity of their cultural, spiritual, and political power. He also pointed out that Venezuela continues to build an independent and sovereign alternative to imperialism.
Maduro reaffirms the anti-imperialist nature of the PSUV
As president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Maduro reaffirmed the anti-imperialist character of the political organization, reiterating his call for unification to promote integration and counteract imperialist hegemony.
“The PSUV is a young party that emerged in the heat of the Bolivarian Revolution, founded by our commander Hugo Chávez, who was born under the banners of the construction of socialism from our deep Latin American and Caribbean roots,” the Venezuelan president noted in his speech. “It is a social and political force in the heat of the fight against North American imperialism and its obsession to hegemonize and dominate our America, in the heat of the fight to build in our homeland in the image of our own economic, social, and political model of Bolivarian Socialism in the 21st century.”
