Latin America: No light at the end of the tunnel

Previously published 20/5/16 on PravdaReport.

Dilma Roussef, President of Brazil

A serious political crisis has paralyzed Brazil. Argentina has changed its president. Venezuela is standing on the brink of violent clashes and a military coup. In Peru, Alberto Fujimori's heiress is coming to power. Why do progressive left-wing parties lose ground in Latin America rapidly?

Of course, Nicolas Maduro's remarks about the external factor - the support of the opposition for the United States - are partially true. No external factor can shake up an economically stable and prosperous country. You may say, dear reader, that there is no such country in the world at the moment, as we all still feel the effects of the global financial crisis. This is true, too. However, there are countries in Latin America that have been developing steadily, even if they change governments. It goes about such countries as Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Uruguay. What is the matter then? The matter is about the very basis of everything - economy.

Weep Argentina! Local government treatment of strays needs international condemnation

Canadian Voice for Animals-Argentina report that an official culture in Argentina that refuses to spay strays or help the poor spay domestic pets has resulted in a huge population of strays.

Canadian Voice For Animals - Argentina is trying to focus international attention on the crisis of management and unspeakable cruelty because the mainstream press is not doing so. Please sign the petition and tell everyone you know about this unspeakable shame.

Will Rudd Government's high immigration program turn Australia into Argentina?

Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine shows how the application by a murderous military dictatorship of neo-liberal economic policies in the 1970's and 1980's transformed Argentina from being amongst the advanced nations of the world into an impoverished Third World nation. However, this may have only been the last nail in the coffin. Was the principle underlying cause Argentina's sustained programme of immigration, not from the Third World, but from Europe?
