In this post, you will find great Latin America Quotes from famous people, such as Walter Salles, Paulina Rubio, Indra Nooyi, Jenna Bush, Noam Chomsky. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
The peoples of Asia, Africa, and Latin America have common interest and are in the position to support each other in their anti-imperialist and anti-U.S. struggle. As long as Africa and Latin America are not free.
The left is being funded primarily by the drug traffickers who provide this tax money and that’s why the guerrillas in Colombia, unlike the guerrillas anywhere else in Latin America, have been able to survive for 40 years because they have a hard, solid source of income.
Globalization and the neoliberal economic model have already been rejected in Latin America; it simply hasn’t been a solution for our people. At the same time, Latin countries like Venezuela and Argentina are anti-imperialist and anti-globalization, and yet their economies are growing again.
In English, I’m a little bit limited. I speak English as a second language, and that’s a little limitation that I have to work around and I have to use it to my favor. So, yes, that’s why I end up wanting to do more things in Latin America.
Unfortunately we – and I’m speaking not for Latin America but for Mexico because that’s where I come from – we still, I think, are a little bit macho. Not that we only live in a macho world, but we also think as a macho world; even the women, you know? The women in Mexico, because that’s the way we were raised.
I started with theater when I was 9 years old and then got into television when I was 16, but I would say my first big break was ‘Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas’, a telenovela that was very successful all across Latin America.
We think, fundamentally, that the future story of Latin America, not only of Mexico but for all of Latin America, will be constructed from the bottom – that the rest of what’s happening, in any case, are steps.
I think the best thing I can say about it – and I think the best thing you can say about anything, really – is that ‘The MotorcycleDiaries‘ made me feel like my home was bigger; it made me feel at home anywhere in Latin America.
In the United States, the government is bailing out banks, intervening in the economy, yet in Latin America, the Right continues to talk about ‘free markets.’ It’s totallyoutdated; they don’t have arguments; they don’t have any sense.
My grandmother and my mom and my aunt Aurelia, my grandmother Juanita, my mom Lucia – we lived on the outskirts of a barrio in Mexico City called Tepito, and Tepito for many, many decades was the largest barrio in Mexico and perhaps even Latin America.
I do feel that I have to use my voice for those that don’t have one. I have to do the best I can in my own work to represent my culture, represent the women of my country, of Latin America. What we stand for. What we’re made of.
When you look across the board at the count of NBA quality players that are on various international teams in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia, there are good players all over the world now. It’s just not in the NBA where America has the most talent.
I’m a writer. In Latin America, they say I’m a Latin-American writer because I also write in Spanish and my books are translated, but I am an American citizen and my books are published here, so I’m also an American writer.
I must try and break through the cliches about Latin America. Superpowers and other outsiders have fought over us for centuries in ways that have nothing to do with our problems. In reality we are all alone.
I don’t see why OPEC countries should continue to cut production just to keep the price of oil high. This will not affect the industrial countries alone, it will also hitpoor countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Who will look after them?
