Declaration on Chile
SI Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean meets in Buenos Aires, 9-10 April 2010
The Socialist International Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean, in solidarity with the Chilean people, who have suffered an enormous earthquake on 27 February:
Recognises the constant work of reconstruction to bring solutions to thousands of families affected by the earthquake.
Recognises the efforts of the Concertación to bring a spirit of solidarity to the financing of reconstruction and to translate public and private contributions into prompt solutions.
The Committee recognises the great political, economic and cultural transformation achieved by the member parties of the Coalition for Democracy in Chile. This progressive and democratic process has led to great advances for the country, with actions focused on education, health, expansion of liberties and the creation of a network of social protection, amongst others.
