Havana, Dec 14 (Prensa Latina) The threat of the U.S. military interventionism against Latin America remains fully valid with its hostile policy in the region, the president of the Cuban Movement for Peace, Silvio Platero, said on Friday.
Platero told Prensa Latina the importance of holding workshops and seminars such as the one held on Thursday to discuss this danger, recalling the aggressions against Grenada and Panama.
The invasions to Granada, in October 1983, and Panama, in December 1989, are painful and lamentable chapters in the history of Latin America and the Caribbean, he stressed.
‘These actions left many people dead, injured and missing, in addition to material losses that affected the economy of both nations,’ he said.
Despite the passing of time, the threat is still present, demonstrated by the aggressive stance of the current administration against Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba, said participants in Thursday’s event, which brought together academicians and researchers, convened by the Cuban Movement for Peace.
The experts particularly recalled that at times, U.S. President Donald Trump has handled the military option against the Bolivarian Revolution.
In his talk with Prensa Latina, Platero also highlighted the celebration in Havana on Friday of the 16th Summit of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP).
According to the activist, this is an appropriate forum to address the dangers facing peace in the region.
