    Huge conference urges end to neoliberalism

    DELEGATES from across the developing world called for a “new world order” of peace and development in Bolivia last week.

    The final declaration of the World People’s Conference in Tiquipaya said the “social property of natural resources” must be protected, the Bolivian Information Agency reported.

    Four thousand delegates from 43 countries on four continents attended the conference on Tuesday and Wednesday last week.

    They demanded the establishment of a “new international finance architecture” without multilateral organisations serving transnational capital.

    The declaration also called for “the building of true peace” — not only between nations but in social relations.

    “It is not only the inexistence of armed conflicts but also the overcoming of structural violence that translates to equitable access to wealth and development opportunities,” it read.

    It identified the principal causes of the current global crisis as: “Armed conflicts and military interventions, climate change and the enormous economic inequalities between states and within them.”

    The conference said the immigration crisis, originally caused by the increasing gap between rich and poor and the excessive appetite for natural wealth, had driven many out of their countries and increased those displaced by war to around 65 million people.

    “The migratory crisis is one of the signs of the internal crisis of global neoliberalism,” it said, calling for a “right of human mobility” to be recognised.

    Bolivian President Evo Morales called last week’s conference along with the ex-presidents of Colombia and Ecuador Ernesto Samper and Rafael Correa and former Spanish PM Luis Zapatero.

    Mr Samper and Mr Zapatero have been at the centre of efforts to mediate between Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s Socialist Party government and the US-backed opposition that has since launched a new campaign of putschist violence.

    The conference reflected Latin American opposition to the planned building of a wall along the US-Mexican border to stop illegal immigration — but also urged all nations to combat the “criminal networks that traffic in human beings.”

    Delegates also condemned similar anti-refugee policies in Europe and called for respect for refugees from the wars waged on the Middle East, while also demanding that Israel respect the Palestinian people.
