Luisa González and Correa’s promise in Caracas

Before the cream of the 21st century socialism in the region, in a large auditorium, a happy Rafael Correa, visibly moved, apologized to Latin America “due to the loss of Ecuador due to treason” (referring to Lenin Moreno, although he did not mention it) and because it was not recovered in April 2021, “because of our own mistakes,” he said.

On March 5, 2022, during the V Congress of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), led by Nicolás Maduro, in Caracas, where Correa was widely applauded.

There he made a solemn promise: “”take back Ecuador for its people, for the great country and together take back Latin America.”. He then praised Hugo Chávez, whom he called “the eternal commander,” and praised Venezuela for resisting the economic blockade.

He assured that before the blockade, Venezuela exported USD 50,000 million of oil, and in 2022, 700 million; 70 times less.

“Block copper in Chile and we’ll see how many months it lasts,” he asked himself and, delighted, shouted: Venezuela fights back! Venezuela continues its revolution! Overcome!

Maduro returned the compliment, pointing that out Correa is a leader in Latin America that, although he is not “formally in the Presidency”, he continues to have a decisive impact on Ecuadorian and Latin American public opinion.

He also said it was part of courageous leadership of the first socialist wavewhich is not interventionist like the second in which he involved himself.

“The second wave is antineoliberalBUT not revolutionary and have signs of weaknessesthat the first leaders who created Petrocaribe (with 18 States), Alba, UNASUR, Celac do not have and have very close relations,” said Maduro.

And, immediately, he raised his voice and, with uncontrollable emotion, revealed that a “Winning plan” it is initiated and announced as follows:

And he continued: This year we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the meeting of Manuela Sáenz and Simón Bolívar, in Quito; 200 years of the greatest love ever known in the freedom struggles of our great nation. “And we will celebrate in Quito; “We’re going to Quito,” he said, adding: “I am announcing my visit to Quito on June 16. “We will go to Manuela’s house to celebrate.”

the The truth is that without authority, even the Foreign Ministry, which I consulted twice, Do they have any information on this?which is strange because the visit of a President of the Republic, even if it is unofficial, is always announced to the country if it is canceled later, however.

What Ecuadorians remember well is that on June 16, 2022, the country lives in fourth day of violent national strikewhich was gathered by indigenous organizations, led by Leonidas Iza.

And that the government of Guillermo Lasso walks around because in the National Assembly a motion to censure and remove himalthough in the end they did not get the votes needed to remove him from power.

and have a relationship between the announcement of the “triumphant plan”, made three months ago, by Maduro, and the convulsive days in Ecuador in June 2022 impossible to know, but what the president of Venezuela said was in the speech of the V Congress of the PSUV.

The episode returned to my memory after watching, not without surprise, the statement of the candidate Correismo’s presidential candidate, Luisa González, who confirmed that Venezuelans who migrated to Ecuador “run back to Venezuela, because In their country, their living conditions are better than in Ecuador.”

“Venezuelans fear Ecuador”He ended up disbelieving the reporter who interviewed him.

After the uproar caused by his words, González tried to clarify by saying that he meant “physical survival,” but this is strange because according to the InSight Crime foundation, in 2022 Venezuela is the country with the highest number of homicides per capita, with 40.4 cases per 100,000 people; while that of Ecuador, in the same year, was 26 per 100,000 inhabitants, although at the end of 2023 it will be equal to Venezuela.

In the economy, the candidate of the citizen revolution seems to be ignore the drama the Venezuelans are experiencing; Therefore, although his ideology prevents him from recognizing, figures such as the minimum wage of Ecuadorians cannot be hidden, which is USD 450 per month, while that of Venezuelans USD 5.3; as it reads: five dollars and three cents per month.

On the social front, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) estimates that at least The number of Venezuelans who fled their country is 7.1 million “seeking protection and a better life,” in recent years. Indeed, in About 450,000 people live in Ecuador, many of them have a bad time, although there are professionals who position themselves better.

at the moment Luisa Gonzalez did not see the traffic lights in many cities Venezuelan mothers carrying children until almost midnight asking for help? And one more: don’t you know the drama in Venezuela?

The answers are clear because otherwise it is not understood as theirs dream is to implement 21st century socialism in Ecuador, as his teacher, Rafael Correa, promised in Caracas, when he swore to “take back Ecuador for the great homeland.”

Therefore, a question arises: if Luisa González loses the election, will she move to Venezuela, where she claims “there are better living conditions”?
