Peru - Resistencia Global
In our country, the neoliberal, mafia and corrupt right was defeated in the elections after 20 years of government in june 2011 in the second round. The campaign of power groups through the media was based on lies and raising fears about Ollanta Humala, accusing him of being a Red, communist, pro-Chavez, militarist and other things. This campaing failed. The population, mostly from the inland country, voted for the nationalist party of Gana Peru.
In July, Ollanta Humala came to presidency and formed a government of so-called national unity with a mixed cabinet where ministers from Gana Peru were included, along with people from the left, from Peru possibly the principal ally in the Congress, independants and also from the neoliberal right like the Minister of Economy Castilla and the president of the BCR Javier Velarde.
The most important element of the political situation is that President Ollanta Humala begun its political measures promised during the elections campaign despite the fact that the neoliberal right-wing tries and diverts him from doing it and attacks him on his weakest points or mistakes made by persons from his political entourage, for instance with Omar Chejade, one of the vice-president of the republic for assisting a meeting in order to support a private company Wong and the eviction of the workers from a cooperative Andahuasi. His presence was quite strange, and the right-wing takes this opportunity to ask for his exclusion from vice presidency and of every inquiry commission. The real objective of the fujimorist APRA (American Popular Revolutionanray Alliance) is to isolate Ollanta in his presidency in order to make him implement neoliberal measures and also to stop and weaken politically the big inquiry commission on corruption and Peru oil scandal with BTR and others, in which Alan Garcia, Jorge del Castillo are involved.
The most important is the transformation needed in the country, that is change in social policies in favor of education and health, work and jobs with rights and social benefits, suppression of services and contracts without any rights etc.
The government has already begun changes in order to improve the living conditions of the poorest sectors of the society or in extreme poverty, the persons marginalised by the expoitation system, cheated by the last government. New measures are implemented like the first attempt of a minimum wage which will reach 750 new soles next year, tax on the profits of minery companies, consulting law, legislation on health and work safety, 65 pension for elderly people and others.
The working class and the people must be careful about the implementation of what has been promised, though union work and the struggle against corruption, wherever it may exist. Strenghtening the trade unions by the struggle and mobilizing against every attempt from the neoliberal right to slow down progresses and destabilize the current government.
