¡hugo chavez presente!

Bu farw Hugo Chavez. Roedd yr Arlywydd Chavez yn gawr ar y llwyfan rhyngwladol, yn helpu i greu dynamig newydd yn America Ladin, gyda’r cyfandir yn darganfod ei hyder, ac yn chwalu unwaith ac am byth rym yr Unol Dalieithau yno. Ond yn fwy na hynny, roedd o blaid y tlawd yn Venezuela, yn defnyddio adnoddau’r wlad i wella bywydau pobl gyffredin, ac yn wahanol i’w wrthwynebiad, roedd yn ddemocrat a enillodd dro ar ol tro mewn etholiadau teg a thryloyw.

Gwnaeth aelod yr Ymgyrch gyfweliad gyda Radio Cymru, yn talu teyrnged i waith Arlwyddd Chavez:

Cynigodd Ymgyrch Cefnogi Venezuela (Venezuela Solidairty Campaign) ei deyrnged ei hun bore’ma:

“Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias, President of Venezuela, died on March 5th at 4:25 hrs (local time) after a long and hard battle against cancer. He was 58 years old.

He led the progressive transformation of Venezuela by lifting millions of its citizens from poverty – standing against social exclusion, marginalisation and institutional repression – thereby restoring to them a long-overdue dignity.

Under President Chavez’s leadership, his government’s policies improved the life of ordinary Venezuelans as no other government had ever done in the history of that South American nation.

Chavez also played a leading role in the transformation of Latin America into a progressive continent, which in the 21st century is collectively affirming the sovereignty of the nation states that make it up, and where, in different ways and through nationally-specific routes, they have been attempting to build a better world.

Hugo Chavez will continue to symbolise, for decades to come, the aspirations of dignity, sovereignty, justice and a better life as fully empowered citizens, for people all around the world. 

He showed that a better world could be constructed.

Our hearts go to his family, friends, comrades, the people of Venezuela, and the people of Latin America”.

I ddeall dylanwad Chavez, darllenwch erthygl Seamus Milne yn y Guardian bythefnos yn ol (gweler fan hyn). Heb Chavez, ni fyddai’r gwelliannau, yn economaidd, cymdeithasol a gwleidyddol mae Milne yn eu disgrifio, wedi digwydd. Mae’n debyg y bydd Chavez yn ymuno a’i harwr, Simon Bolivar, fel rhai o’r unigolion prin sydd wedi newid cyfeiriad cyfandir.

Mae teyrnged awr ar raglen diweddar Democracy Now! – gweler fan hyn.
