Tariq Ali Presents Fidel Castro
The Declarations of Havana – Introduced by Tariq Ali
In response to the American administration’s attempt to isolate Cuba, Fidel Castro delivered a series of speeches designed to radicalize Latin American society. As Latin America experiences more revolutions in Venezuela and Bolivia, and continues to upset America’s plans for neo-liberal imperialism, renowned radical writer and activist Tariq Ali provides a searing analysis of the relevance of Castro’s message for today.
Hugo Chavez Presents Simon Bolivar
The Bolivarian Revolution – Introduced by Hugo Chavez
The Venezuelan revolutionary Simón Bolívar, also known as El Libertador, sought to lead Latin America to independence from the Spanish in the early nineteenth century. Ever since he has been held as a model for subsequent Latin American radicals; Hugo Chávez, President of Venezuela, has dubbed his own programmes of social reform “the Bolívarian Revolution.”
In his introduction to this collection of Bolívar’s writings, Hugo Chávez explains why Bolívar continues to inspire.
