Los retos que plantea la ofensiva de la derecha en América Latina

first_imgEsta es la tercera y última sección de la exposición presentada por Olmedo Beluche, Analista y autor marxista panameño, profesor de sociología de la Universidad de Panamá y miembro del Polo Democrático. Beluche hizo su presentación durante un foro titulado “La situación de las Izquierdas en America Latina,” organizado por la Fundación Friedrich Ebert en la ciudad de Panamá el 25 de agosto del 2016.III. América Latina requiere una nueva oleada revolucionariaHacer frente a la ofensiva del capitalismo imperialista coaligado con las derechas y burguesías nacionales requiere un vuelco en la lucha de clases que devuelva a la acción ofensiva a las masas trabajadoras. Sólo la movilización popular revolucionaria, no la movilización clientelista electorera, ni las medidas de conciliación con la burguesía, puede hacer la diferencia en la correlación de fuerzas.De hecho, en muchos sectores de América Latina las luchas no se han detenido y continúan, pero tampoco han escalado a nivel de los años 90. Para rebasar los límites que alcanzaron las revoluciones democráticas y antineoliberales de los años 90, se requerirán nuevas revoluciones, las revoluciones del siglo XXI, las cuales ya se están gestando en las luchas populares actuales, especialmente entre la juventud antisistema que combate en todos lados.La movilización independiente y revolucionaria de las masas trabajadoras y populares, su intensidad y maduración consciente es un proceso objetivo, cuyo curso y ritmos es difícil de prever y dirigir. Como el vino, las clases trabajadoras requieren tiempo de maduración, para agotar experiencias, para sacar conclusiones, para construir nuevas direcciones políticas, para decidir cursos de acción.Enfrentar exitosamente la ofensiva reaccionaria requerirá de nuevas dirigencias que se alejen de dos defectos políticos muy en boga en la actualidad: por un lado, el oportunismo de quienes no pretenden otra cosa que administrar el sistema capitalista, sin rebasar los límites hasta ahora alcanzados; y el sectarismo, que reniega de las experiencias concretas de la gente, por lo que no embona con su imaginario, incapacitándose para hablarles a las masas que se han movilizado bajo la dirección política de Chávez, Evo, Correa, los Kirchner o Lula.Se requerirán nuevas direcciones políticas dispuestas a asumir riesgos y costos en el enfrentamiento a la reacción imperialista, para derrotar la ofensiva reaccionaria, combinando la lucha por derechos democráticos y humanos, antineoliberales, con verdaderas medidas de corte socialistas, como: poder obrero real, mediante organismos asamblearios, nacionalización de la banca, la industria y el comercio exterior.Partes primera y segunda:www.workers.orghttp://tinyurl.com/zeprb5jhttp://tinyurl.com/h69luv5FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Danish ex-minister on trial for splitting migrant couples

first_imgCOPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Denmark’s Parliament has voted to try a former immigration minister at the rarely used Court of Impeachment over a 2016 order aimed at separating asylum-seeking couples where one partner is under 18. In Tuesday’s vote, the 179-member Folketing overwhelmingly voted to try Inger Stoejberg, who served as integration minister in the previous government from June 2015 to 2019. The court will convene for the first time in 26 years. Stoejberg could face a fine or a maximum two years in prison. No date for a trial was announced. A parliament-appointed commission had said earlier that separating couples in asylum centers was “clearly illegal.”last_img read more

Pellegrini: It’s hard to stay calm

first_img Press Association Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has joked that keeping calm in press conferences is one of the hardest parts of a manager’s job. “We are all human beings and when you play for your club not to go down, it is massive pressure.” Wenger admitted he himself has been close to losing his temper “many, many, many times”. “You know you have to control yourself and remain in control and polite and respectful,” he said. “But of course sometimes you feel that people are not respectful of you.” Hull manager Steve Bruce admitted there have been a number of occasions when he has said or done something he later regretted. He said: “I think sometimes, after a game in particular when you are disappointed – he has just lost a game – you have to come out and face the press and sometimes you find it quite amusing. “I think after games sometimes the emotion comes out and we have all done silly and stupid things you regret. “I have seen myself run up and down touchlines and you think, ‘Oh my God Steve what are you doing, have a bit of dignity and respect for your opponents’. “It has made fantastic headlines. It was great watching it at the time and I think we have all enjoyed it. I think even the reporter has enjoyed it as we all know who he is now, so fair play to him.” West Brom head coach Tony Pulis said managers had to find a way to deal with the pressures they are under. He said: “It’s a difficult job being a manager at a Premier League club. You have so many responsibilities and the weight of responsibility is on your shoulders. “It’s the first time Nigel has managed in the Premier League and he has done fantastically well so far. They have a great chance of staying up and getting out of trouble and a couple of weeks ago everyone wrote them off. “Nigel said what he said and he has to live by that. People deal with it differently. “We’re not all the same, thank God, and the thing is with Nigel is he is a very honest, up front sort of guy and wears his heart on his sleeve. “Those reactions don’t surprise me sometimes because he is that type of bloke.” Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew said: “Managers are in pressurised situations after matches. The circumstances were difficult for the manager, but he’s apologised.” He has since apologised but the incident has received considerable public attention and highlighted how media responsibilities are very much part of a manager’s work. Pellegrini, who won the Premier League title last season, has been famously calm throughout his two seasons at City but claims he was not always that way. The 61-year-old Chilean said: “It is the most difficult thing to do as a manager! “For me one of the most difficult things was to change my character, to try and be cool and understand that every journalist can ask what he wants – with respect of course – and the managers can answer what they want, with respect. “It is difficult. Maybe as a younger manager I didn’t control so much my character. Now I can do it because the years help me.” Pellegrini was speaking at a press conference to preview his side’s game at Tottenham on Sunday and he was not the only manager to be asked about one of this week’s major talking points. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admitted he could understand how the matter unfolded given the pressures of the job. He said: “I have sympathy (with Pearson), of course. He apologised and he knows he was wrong but it is not always easy to deal with these kinds of situations. Leicester manager Nigel Pearson this week made headlines when he called a journalist “an ostrich” in a bizarre confrontation after his relegation-threatened side’s loss to Chelsea. Pearson took exception to a question and suggested the reporter was either being “very, very silly” or “absolutely stupid”. last_img read more
