Back in Havana

It’s back to the 70s alright.

Much as expected, this week’s meeting in Havana of the Non-Aligned Movement is quickly turning into an anti-American show, with plenty of talk about the evils of imperialism, US hegemony and the dangers of globalisation … You get my drift.

According to Reuters, the draft communique to be discussed by delegates attacks the US on several fronts, including a denunciation of the American trade embargo against the Castro regime. Of course.

Then there are calls for the US not to interfere in Venezuelan affairs and the usual criticisms of Israel. Plenty of those, in fact.

It’s that kind of meeting. Predictable and irrelevant.
