Havana, Apr 28 (Prensa Latina) Workers from different union organizations around the world ratified today their solidarity with Cuba, through a virtual forum convened by the Cuban Workers Union (CTC).
Through social networks, especially the CTC’s Youtube channel, from Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, Spain and the United States, among other countries, representatives of the workers’ movements demanded the end of the blockade against the Caribbean nation.
‘Cuba is not alone’, said the delegate of the Union del Barrio, a political organization of Mexicans and Latin Americans in New York, while from Brazil the Frente de los Trabajadores called for the end of the US blockade.
The Cuba Solidarity Campaign (CSC) in the United Kingdom sent a message to the Cuban people and unions, in which it highlighted its admiration for the doctors who are fighting against Covid-19.
The director of the CSC, Rob Miller, said in a video that the organization, which brings together friends of the island and more than half a thousand British unions, considers that it is time to support Cuba.
In that sense, he called for the lifting of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States for almost 60 years, which now limits access to medical equipment and supplies needed to fight the pandemic.
The virtual forum was convened by the CTC, on May 1st, International Workers’ Day, to discuss and show support to those who fight for their rights in an international context marked by the Covid-19.
