“Our voice is an independent voice to represent the dignity and the search for peace and the reformulation of the internationalsystem; to denounce persecution and aggression of hegemonistic forces on the planet” Former President of Venezuela, Cde Hugo Chavez
“Solidarity is an assertion that no people is alone, no people is isolated in the struggle for progress. Solidarity is the conscious alliance of the progressive and peace-loving revolutionary forces … in short, against exploitation of human by human. Solidarity has no race and no colour, and its country has no frontiers. There is no solidarity just among Africans, no exclusively Asian solidarity, since the enemy of the people also has no country or race. International solidarity is not an act of charity: it is an act of unity between allies fighting on different terrains toward the same objectives. The foremost of these objectives is to assist in the development of humanity to the highest level possible.” – Former President of Mozambique, Cde Samora Machel
