This Sunday, September 20, is the 14th anniversary of the historic speech of the Bolivarian Revolution’s Leader, Hugo Chávez, at the LXI United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York city.
This was recalled by Venezuelan Vice Presidency through its twitter account, posting the video where Commander Hugo Chávez denounced the interference policies of US imperialism and exposed the truth of the world’s invisible peoples. Hugo Chavez speech is consider today more valid than ever under the current US regime where the White House tenant has revive the Monroe Doctrine and McCarthyism as a way of domination in a desperate attempt to counter the unstoppable US decline.
“It still smells like sulfur,” was the phrase that President Chávez used to compare the then US President -George Bush- with the devil, when he took the podium to denounce the interference and evil policies of that government.

To explain the hegemonic system of North American domination, Chávez began his intervention by assuring that “North American imperialism, and here Chomsky says it with crystal clear and profound clarity, is making desperate efforts to consolidate its hegemonic system of domination. We cannot allow that to happen, we cannot allow the world dictatorship to be installed, the world dictatorship to be consolidated.
In addition, he alerted the American people themselves about the sword of Damocles that this represents was hanging also over them. Hugo Chavez speech is more valid than ever, specially in 2020 with blatant human rights abuses against US citizens protesting the racist US system and with the Covid-19 catastrophe in that country causing more that 200 thousand deaths reported as of today
