Latin America has been one of the most convulsive regions on the planet. It has been hit by drug trafficking, insecurity and corruption. Likewise, today it presents serious dangers for the stability of the region, with the presence of the Cuban dictatorship, which has financed and organized extreme left movements in several countries and has succeeded in destabilizing governments.
Cuba is one of the last socialist states, the last in the western world, which had its peak during the twentieth century. For this reason, and for its intense history, this small country unleashes great passions, endless discussions and strong ideological positions for and against. Cuba is the last western country where the economic system known as real socialism is maintained. This is a system that we can hardly see as a step to communism. Rather as a system by itself, different from the reigning social or liberal capitalism, based on an almost total planning of the economy and a state control of the means of production, what during the twentieth century has come to be called “socialism of state».
Likewise, in Europe, new political lobbies of support for the Havana regime have emerged, for this reason there is an almost total ignorance of the Cuban and Latin American reality in European society. Today, European society and the governments of these countries do not have a clear perception of the reality of nations such as Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.
The current political, social and political situation in Cuba needs a new approach to translate the structural elements and demands that the social forces within the island are making public in a need for development for a more plural and more participatory Cuba. The current Cuban context, which has resulted in civil society encompassing initiatives such as LGBT rights, such as public policies for the protection of animals as a comprehensive law for the protection of women, in that sense, it is necessary to create a platform of Dialogue and Action, for the exchange of experiences with other nations in the international context, as well as the need to seek support.
In this sense, a group of young people, of various nationalities of Latin America, in which Cuba and Venezuela stand out, have decided to join in the effort to build bridges of understanding between Latin America and Europe in order to demonstrate to Europeans the current situation of these countries, and also stop the pro-Castro groups that have emerged on the continent.
With that purpose, and aimed at European society, the New Generation initiative arises, with the aim of strengthening and creating bridges between Latin American organizations, media and groups and European institutions. A platform for dialogue and cooperation.
