In November of 2004, U.S. economist and Democratic Party political leader Lyndon H. LaRouche, and Agustín Rodríguez, Secretary-General of STUNAM, (Trade Union of Mexico's National Autonomous University), held a first public international dialogue via Internet, to establish a new framework for global international and economic relations, with a particular focus on those between Mexico and Ibero-America on the one hand and the United States.
We are pleased to announce that a Second International Dialogue will take place on Thursday, June 14, at 11:00 A.M. (Mexico City time) and 12:00 noon (Eastern Daylight Savings time), where the main topic of discussion will be why "Globalization equals Fascism. We Need a New Bretton Woods Now!" The dialogue will be broadcast on the worldwide web with simultaneous Spanish-English translation.
This Second International Dialogue could not be more timely, coming just as the promoters of globalization are provoking increasing ungovernability in France, the U.S., Mexico and other nations around the world. Structural reforms and the fairy tales about global warming are key elements in the globalization strategy that the Anglo-Dutch financial oligarchy has been so ruthlessly imposing, in order to destroy the sovereignty of all nations and impose regimes far worse than Adolf Hitler's.
Since 1994, LaRouche has warned that the enforcement of these globalization policies would guarantee the disintegration of the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) global system. He called for reestablishing the economic tradition of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and creating a new world monetary system—a New Bretton Woods.
But the insanity of those in power, as well as confirmation of the accuracy of his warnings, have made LaRouche the only valid interlocutor in the United States for dialogue and discussion of solutions both inside and outside that country. Thus, after LaRouche called on China, India, Russia and the U.S. to take the first steps toward forging that anti-globalist agreement on behalf of industrial development internationally, the Russian Academy of Sciences (an institution of unique importance in that country for the past 300 years) and the anti-globalization movement, invited LaRouche to Moscow in mid-May as a special invited guest, and as the keynote speaker at various seminars where solutions for today, and for the next 25 to 50 years, were discussed.
Globalization in Mexico, brutally imposed from the time of Carlos Salinas de Gortari's regime, has destroyed the nation's monetary sovereignty, its local industry and agriculture; it has forced more than 10 million people to emigrate, and has impoverished 90 percent of the population. Mexico has been turned into a satrap of the speculator sharks who, in order to sustain their rate of looting of Mexico's physical assets as well as its labor force, must eliminate the last organized redoubts of nationalism, such as trade unions and other institutions. This is why they are applying "social security and labor reform."
Agustin Rodríguez is one of the representatives of this labor sector. He is the Secretary-General of the Trade Union of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (STUNAM), as well as an exeutive of the important National Workers Union (UNT) labor federation. His long history of struggle in defense of national interests has made him one of the leading opponents of the looting policies imposed on Mexico by globalization's bosses. Today, he is leading the national battle to overturn the social security privatization law imposed last March on public sector workers affiliated with the ISSSTE (State Workers Services and Social Security Institute), totalling some three million members. When he served in Congress during the previous session, he led the opposition against any "reform" coming from the globalizers.
Rodríguez and LaRouche will once again engage in a dialogue, which will have several virtual audiences on five continents.
