Brussels, 24 August 2018
The President of the Party of the European Left, Gregor Gysi declares:
The Party of the European Left (EL) participate in the XXIV Foro de Sao Paulo (FSP) in la Habana, Cuba
Joint statement by Maite Mola, responsible of the EL international relations, and Marco Consolo, EL Latin America WG coordinator.
It has been years that the EL and the Foro de Sao Paulo (FSP) representatives are exchanging common analysis and implement mutual solidarity. This year, the delegation of 14 comrades from 9 European countries has participated in XXIV FSP in la Habana, Cuba.
The Mexican people towards their Fourth Transformation: a reason to feel hopeful about the future of the entire Latin American continent.
The Working Group for Latin America of the Party of the European Left (EL) congratulates Andrés Manuel López Obrador for his victory in the presidential elections held on July 1st.
Undoubtedly, this is a historic triumph, not only because of Lopez Obrador's massive advantage over the right-wing opponents in the elections but also because of the social situation in which Mexico finds itself. This victory of the left is the only possible way out of the serious socio-economic, political problems and destruction of democracy in which the Mexican people are immersed.
Given the serious events taken place in Nicaragua and the violence carried out by various sectors, the Working Group for Latin America of the Party of the European Left (EL) urges the Nicaraguans to reach an agreement soon in the Dialogue Table so that the violence ceases and the democracy of the country gains strength without breaking the constitutional continuity.
