encuentro 5

Please join the Encuentro5 Peña community and friends to commemorate and celebrate solidarity with Independence in the Americas and the struggle for a second liberation

Between 1808 and 1826, after three centuries of colonial rule by the Spanish and Portuguese imperialists, most of Latin America (aka Spanish and Portuguese America) with the exception of Cuba and Puerto Rico won their independence. During this period, liberation movements and revolutionary wars for independence, Latin Americans won and established the sovereign nations of Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. Today, however, these nations whose independence is constrained by international capitalism are now engaged in a struggle for the second liberation.
