El Salvador's FMLN welcomes Hugo Chavez's call for a Fifth International
December 23rd 2009, by FMLN - Links
Resolution of the XXV Ordinary FMLN National
Convention on the initiative to establish the
'Fifth (V) Socialist International'
This FMLN National Convention,
1. That the Farabundo Marti National Liberation
Front (FMLN) is a political organisation that has
the responsibility, recognised by popular
majority and as a consequence of our long history
of struggle, of constructing in El Salvador a
society based on social justice; which is
economically productive, environmentally
sustainable and wherein all exercise and respect
fundamental freedoms and inherent rights of the
human being, as recognised in the Constitution of the Republic.
2. That the progressive and left-wing political
and social movements, which are leading the
struggles for democracy and social progress, are
experiencing a period of growth and gain in
various parts of the world, and particularly in
Latin America and the Caribbean; proposing and
winning solutions to the major problems confronting the world today.
3. That it is evident that neoliberalism, that
extreme form of uncontrolled capitalism, has not
and will not be able to resolve the great
challenges faced by modern civilisation,
currently immersed in a deep economic and
financial crisis that has deepened the conditions
of poverty and misery for millions of human
beings. To this is added, among other calamities
that afflict humanity, the evident and
destructive effects of climate change, the growth
of diseases and illness, the energy crisis, the
food crisis, the rise in transnational
delinquency, and the threats to peace and
democracy in various regions of the planet.
4. That in this context it is of paramount
importance that all of the social movements and
political organisations that characterise
themselves as progressive, left and socialist,
wherever they are around the world, intensify our
theoretical discussion and the formulation of
alternative development projects - in order that
we meet the aspirations of prosperity, freedom
and self-determination of the people, and that
this in turn stimulates solidarity and fraternal cooperation between us all.
5. That it is the right of any national political
force, whatever its ideology, to promote links of
friendship and the exchange of experiences with
likeminded political organisations around the
world, without undermining their independence and
identity, and respecting the realities of their socio-political process.
1. To intensify our efforts in the international
arenas to strengthen the opportunities for
reflection, debate and the development of
creative proposals and alternatives for economic
development, social emancipation and sovereignty
of peoples; including within the Sao Paulo Forum
and the Permanent Conference of Political Parties
of Latin America and the Caribbean.
2. To acknowledge and welcome the initiative of
the United Socialist Party of Venezuela to
promote a new space that has become known as "V
[Fifth] Socialist International: to promote
discussion, theoretical, political and
ideological reflection, and solidarity between
political forces around the world who promote the
path of socialism as the way to guarantee our
peoples' human development, economic prosperity,
democracy and national independence, while
preserving peace and the environmental sustainability of the planet.
3. To reiterate our solidarity, and that of the
vast majority of the Salvadoran people, with the
people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela
and other South American nations who have
undertaken structural changes; and who now face a
new and serious threat to self-determination and
sovereignty from the installation of foreign military bases near their borders.
San Salvador, 13 de Diciembre de 2009.
