Bolivarian Continental Movement

The Bolivarian Continental Movement (Spanish: Movimiento Continental Bolivariano) is a political movement named after South American independence hero Simón Bolívar. The political movement was founded in Caracas, Venezuela on December 8, 2009, by a group of 950 left-wing activists from 26 Latin American nations.[1]

The movement claims to seek to advance the interests of workers and fight against imperialism.

Colombian president Álvaro Uribe condemned the new group accusing it of justifying terrorism for reading a statement from Alfonso Cano, commander of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), during its opening session.[2]
