Opposition to Washington's Neoliberal Free Trade Policies Bolstered by Key Electoral Victories Across Latin America

Interview with Antonia Juhasz, program directdor with the International Forum on Globalization, conducted by Between The Lines' Scott Harris

In the second round of Ecuador's presidential election conducted Nov. 24, Edwin Gutierrez was named the winner with 54 percent of the vote. The former army colonel, who took power for several hours in a coup more than two years ago, campaigned on a platform of attacking corruption in high places and promoting economic policies that will benefit his nation's poor majority.

Gutierrez's victory is the latest in a sweep for progressive parties in recent elections throughout Latin America where a severe economic decline has dramatically changed the political landscape. In October, the Workers Party's Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva was the first leftist candidate to win Brazil's presidency. Backed by diverse grassroots movements, political parties that are resisting Washington's economic policies of free trade, privatization and concessions to multinational corporations have also made significant gains in legislative votes in Peru, Bolivia and Costa Rica. Argentina, whose economy many believe was destroyed by adherence to policies set by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, may also see a turn to the left in presidential elections next year.

Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Antonia Juhasz, program director with the International Forum on Globalization, who assesses Latin America's popular revolt against the so-called Washington consensus and worldwide resistance to corporate-led economic globalization.
