Havana, Aug 30 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez evoked on Sunday Fidel Castro’s anti-neoliberal thought.
On Twitter, the FM shares a phrase where the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution warns of the aftermaths of such model.
‘With neoliberalism, (…) instability, speculation, foreign debt, unequal exchange, the tendency to occur more frequent financial crises, poverty, inequality and the gulf between the affluent North and the dispossessed South have increased.’
Fidel Castro expressed those words on April 12, 2000, when he inaugurated the South Summit, an event that brought together presidents and political leaders from 122 developing nations, members of the Group of 77, in Havana for five days.
Recently, the head of Cuban diplomacy criticized the neoliberal approach applied by many governments in their economies, which deepens the crisis generated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the midst of the current scenario, Cuba advocates to international organizations for the adoption of social policies to protect the neediest, a conception conflicting with the essence of the neoliberal system, as Rodriguez points out.
