The General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS), which is being held these days in Lima, has confirmed the continental turn to the left, despite the failure of the vote to expel Venezuela’s democratic envoy, Ambassador Gustavo Tarre Briceo. Nicolás Maduro’s allies obtained 19 supports, compared to the four who voted against, a small group led by the United States, in addition to Canada, Paraguay and Guatemala.

The resolution proposal presented by Mexico, Bolivia and several of the countries of PetroCaribebenefited by Venezuelan oil for years, they did not achieve the required 2/3 (24 votes) to reach their goal, but they made it clear that the pro-Bolivarians are today the majority. The governments of Gustavo Petro (Colombia), Gabriel Boric (Chile), Xiomara Castro (Honduras) and Pedro Castillo (Peru) joined their cause, all of them coming out of the polls in recent months, in addition to Argentina and with the relative surprise of the social democratic Panama.

The leftist overturn was avoided thanks to the nine abstentions of former allies of the democratic cause, such as Uruguay, Ecuador, Brazil and Costa Rica. “It was to silence the voice of democratic Venezuela”Tarre congratulated.

“Do not leave the Venezuelans alone who are resisting against a dictatorship. Those of us who defend democracy in a field of risk of our lives we kept a chair in that space against criminals against humanity“, he defended himself John Guaidpresident in charge who has lost much of the internal and external support he got when in 2019 he dared to challenge the almighty Nicolás Maduro.

“It was clear that with the victories of Castillo in Peru, Boric in Chile and Petro in Colombia, the Venezuelan democratic cause was becoming more and more alone in the region. What happened in the OAS it’s been cooking for a long time, with characters like Carlos Raimundi, Argentine ambassador, at the head of that machinery. We are, internationally speaking, in a scenario similar to 2014, but in a much more authoritarian country, with a much deeper complex humanitarian emergency and with a much more divided opposition,” political scientist Walter Molina Galdi warned EL MUNDO.

Despite the agreements reached in recent days between Washington and Caracas, which has meant the release of the two famous narco-nephews of the Venezuelan presidential couple (a “difficult and painful” decision, according to the Democratic administration), the US maintained its firm support for Guaid and the democratic Parliament during the General Assembly. His Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, again accused Maduro of provoking a “humanitarian catastrophe” In Venezuela. Even President Joe Biden himself assured from the White House that the “son of Chvez” should do much more so that his government lifts the personal and economic sanctions against Chavismo.

The OAS Assembly perfectly sums up the continental political state, which has turned around despite the fact that the recent “exits” of the dictatorships of Venezuela and Nicaragua were added to the historic absence of Cuba. The bet of the revolutionary allies is to reduce the OAS to a minimum and to resuscitate, above all, the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), “an organization created by Chvez in his megaman struggle, promoted by the Castros against the US, where Maduro, Daz-Canel and Ortega have a voice and a vote,” Molina stated. “The difference with those times of Chvez, Nstor and Lula is that now they have less money,” said the Venezuelan political scientist.
