After 10 years and three terms, Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa’s time in office has ended. Under his administration Ecuador made far-reaching economic and social gains, despite having inherited a country on the brink of collapse.

In one of his last interviews before leaving office, Abby Martin talks to him about his legacy, his critics, and the struggle ahead for Ecuador and beyond.

From commenting on Trump and the global crisis of inequality, to addressing CIA plots and opposition in his own country, hear Correa’s last words as President to the people of Latin America and the United States.

  2. No “fake news” or “fake political leader” on this broadcast of “Empire Files”. If President Rafael Correa represents a new paradigm government official, one whose signature human qualities include integrity, compassion, transparency, egalitarianism and peace, there are good reasons for men and women to feel more optimistic about current and future conditions on Earth.

    • Very well said, Jerry.

      It will be interesting to follow the development of his career & the influence he can exert at the international level.

      I particularly admire Ecuador’s constitutional inclusion of the Rights of Nature, an initiative that resonates so deeply & strongly with Polly Higgins’ ‘End Ecocide’ campaign. The twin notions of progressive government and environmental justice are two terms that ring out loud and clear, including and summarizing so much that is of vital, quintessential importance.
