FORMER PRESIDENT OF URUGUAY (Europe and a long period of peace)

The voice of former President of Uruguay Jose Mujica who said he would like a system similar to that of the European Union for Latin America, despite its “flaws”, and suggested a reflection on the attempts to end the community project.

Mujica made these statements in the Venetian island of Lido, which he arrived to participate in the presentation at the festival of the film “The night of 12 years”, the Uruguayan Álvaro Brechner, and the documentary “El Pepe, a supreme life” by Serbian Emir Kusturica.

The former president pointed out that “surely, the project of the European economic community has many flaws,” but stressed that the continent “never lived such a long period of peace.”

Mujica, who at 83 years has just resigned as senator, recalled some details of his twelve years of captivity during the military dictatorship, a story addressed in the film by Brechner, where he is played by the Spaniard Antonio de la Torre.

Listen MP3 (September 2, 2018):

Read translation of the transcription:

“But they never lived such a long period of peace and it seems that it is forgotten. So I think that at least it’s worth thinking about. It’s not to draw a conclusion in a hurry: “this I throw it away if…”, I say. I would like to have something like this in Latin America, that we had contradictions and messes and this, but that they would have built that being.”
