St. Vincent PM tells Africa solidarity will remind ‘golden billion’ of the rest of the world

St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister, Ralph Gonsalves, has told Africa that solidarity, rather that liberalism’s individualism is needed to remind the world’s “golden billion” that there are seven billion other people in the world.

He has also asked the delegates attending the 30th annual meetings of the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) to have that solidarity with Cuba, in light of the Caribbean island’s contribution to liberating African countries from colonialism.

“I want to say this — and we are talking about solidarity with Africa: I want you to have the solidarity with the Caribbean country, which has been suffering from terrific blows of imperialism and a criminal, illegal embargo — Cuba. Cuban blood was shed in Angola for the independence of Angola,” Gonsalves said.
