Argentine Nobel Prize Winner hopes US to vote with conscience
Buenos Aires, Sep 28 (Prensa Latina) Prominent Argentine social activist Adolfo Pérez Esquivel on Monday expressed he hopes US people to vote in upcoming elections with critical conscience and reflect on President Donald Trump´s disasters.
A few weeks before elections in Bolivia and later in the United States, amid a very complex world social context, the 1980 Nobel Peace Prize winner delved into upcoming election processes in both countries (Bolivia and United States), slated for October 18 and November 3, respectively.
I hope the US people reflect on Trump´s disasters around the world and in the United States. The Covid-19 pandemic brought inequalities, hunger, poverty and unemployment to the surface in such a nation. That has to do with the lack of preventive health measures for the people, Pérez Esquivel told Prensa Latina.
In a phone conversation, the human rights defender also referred to Trump's permanent aggression against sister nations such as Cuba, Venezuela and others in the region and in the Middle East. The United States, in addition to having over 200,000 Covid-19 deaths, continues to impose sanctions on other nations, thus supporting coups in Latin America as in Bolivia, he said.
Adolfo Pérez Esquivel said the United States is currently losing its world hegemony and wants to monopolize Latin America's territory and resources. It is increasing destabilization and permanent aggression in the regional governments, he said.
The United States is aimed at destabilizing democracy, spaces to be built by the peoples without foreign interventionism. The United States continues to consider Latin America as its backyard, Pérez Esquivel reflected.
