Latin America goes on with its permanent positive transformation, which is becoming increasingly influent, fraternal and useful. In this process, Cuba is not only welcomed gladly by its brothers from the region but it is also seen as a key referent in this new era of changes.
Recently, for example, the progressive candidate for the presidency of Peru, Ollanta Humala, recorded a significant victory in elections which grants his project of changes, with considerable social incidence, the opportunity to be implemented from the government.
Undoubtedly, there is not an easy path for the new Peruvian authorities given that rightist policies currently in force have created all conditions to make the country part of the steps of imperialism for its global domination.
The previous official authorities in Peru signed treaties with Washington like the bilateral free trade agreement, in force from several months ago, in opposition to liberating projects such as the Bolivarian Alliance of the Peoples of our Americas (ALBA).
Under the wrong idea that this agreement would give Peru possibilities of expansion in global trade, the right wing also used it as a Trojan horse in elections and deliberately hid the fact that by opening to big foreign companies, more competitive and stronger, the local production is doomed to disappear as it as occurred already in other countries with similar situations.
For now, Ollanta Humala, expressed his support of the integration with the rest of Latin America and his visits through the region seem to confirm this stance.
Simultaneously, by means of another visit several days ago by the Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, which included Havana, the creation of mutual cooperation and development programs between nations in the region continues.
Brazil and Ecuador, which were also included in Chavez tour, reviewed ongoing energy and agricultural programs and agreed on new ones on the bases of solidarity, in accordance with fraternal links that support the integration of the area.
Thus, along with other nations, Cuba ratifies its trust in Latin America and the Caribbean, which will get stronger in the next few days with the creation in Caracas of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean Sates (CELAC).
One of the main priorities of this regional organization is to stay away from the direct influence of the imperialist forces of the hemisphere.
