Likewise, the debate included questions from various thinkers, with whom they spoke and took stock of the policies of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on the issues of oil and mutual cooperation.
The Network of Intellectuals and Artists in Defense of Humanity emerged as the idea of commanders Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez, out of their consideration of the importance of the battle of ideas and the articulation of social movements. Currently, it is made up of writers, artists, academics and professionals from various disciplines who oppose colonialism, all forms of domination and the monopolization of thought.
