Cabello Says Latin America Will 'burst' By 'overdose Of Neoliberalism'

Caracas, Oct 19 (EFE) .- The number two of Chavismo, Diosdado Cabello, said Saturday that several countries in the region, among which he mentioned Argentina, Chile, Ecuador and Peru, 'will burst' in the near future for suffering, he said, of an 'overdose of neoliberalism'.

"Those countries are going to burst because they have an overdose of neoliberalism, and nobody can stand that," Cabello told reporters when he recounted recent protests in Chile and Ecuador, and by ensuring there is social unrest in Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Brazil and Honduras.

"It's just the brisita, what is coming now is a hurricane," he said of the demonstrations, of which he ruled out leaders and organizations that took part in the last Sao Paulo Forum, which was held in Caracas between 25 and 28 last July


'A Forum in Sao Paulo that according to opposition versions was a disaster and now they are blaming everything (…), here you don't have to blame anyone, all there is is that the people become aware , the towns take the spaces, the villages are awakened and that is extraordinary, 'he said.

He also accused the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and 'the neoliberal policies that they impose on countries' over protests in some nations of the region.

Cabello also said that the policies of Colombian President Iván Duque make that country 'unsustainable', and that Chilean President Sebastián Piñera faces the demonstrations for the rise in the fares of the metro in the same way as Augusto Pinochet, who ruled de facto in Chile between 1974 and 1990.

"Good student of Pinochet who is Piñera," he said.

According to the head of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC), a forum composed of more than 500 affections for the Government of Nicolás Maduro – in power since 2013 – and that does not recognize a good part of the international community, Venezuela contrasts with these countries because the people do not protest.

'Who protests here? The people, not the bourgeoisie, the business groups (…), the big families that destroyed this country for years, but not the people, the people are with the revolution, 'he said. EFE
