To Movimiento Alianza PAIS
Dear comrades, dear friends,
for the coming V Convention of the Movimiento Alianza Pais to be held on October 1st 2016, I wish to extend a warm greeting to President Correa, leaders, delegates and all those people who will participate to this important meeting.
For those who observe you from the distance, from far away, remember that you are a worldwide reference point of Socialism of the XXI century, and I thank you for the enormous work you are doing in Ecuador and Latin America for socialism.
A job certainly complex and with very strong internal and external pressures . A job which is possible thanks to your ever-renewed willingness to counter the advance of the neo-liberal system and his disciples, scattered everywhere, with increasing arrogance that lurk within the political, economic and information sphere.
We are socialists and we all work to strengthen socialism as a model in opposition to the neo liberal system. Our role is to build solidarity, cement aggregations. We must find the driving forces for an alternative development model, measurable on economic and social sustainability factors and, working together, I think we could do it.
This is an age when we must join forces, build new projects, give hope to people. The light of socialism is still alive but needs to be extended so that it will reach distant, poorly lit places.
Best wishes to all of you,
