A new ghost is sweeping the world, says Diaz-Canel

The mast, 17 December 2019. A NEW ghost is sweeping the world, says Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez. He warns that neoliberalism promoted in Latin America by the United States made citizens more unequal, poorer, less protected and led them to distrust politicians.

“Cuba alerts, at the same time, that the battle against neoliberalism and imperialism will be tougher, insofar as they have managed to advance unjust free trade agreements with which they have set a dangerous trap as serious as the Free Trade Area of the Americas, which was defeated here, in Argentina, in the unforgettable Mar del Plata Summit in 2005, led by Néstor [Kirchner] and [Hugo] Chávez,” President Diaz-Canel said during a solidarity with Cuba event in Argentina.
