Worldwide Activists Back up Cuba in International Meeting (+Photos)

Havana, May 2 (Prensa Latina) With more than 1,000 labor activists from all over the world, the International Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba began Wednesday at Havana Convention Center.

Representatives from 241 organizations of 66 countries spoke out to ratify their support of the Caribbean nation through their call to put an end to the blockade imposed by the United States for almost 60 years.

In addition, they demand the return of the territory illegally occupied by a North American navy base in the eastern province of Guantanamo.

During the opening, Ulises Guilarte de Nacimiento, general secretary of the Cuba Workers Union and Ana Teresita Gonzalez, Vice Minister of Foreign Ministry, reaffirmed the support of Cuba to countries like Venezuela, Brazil, Syria and Nicaragua, as well as causes like the Palestinian and Saharan people.

Gonzalez detailed the international relations of Cuba, with particular emphasis on the links with US under Donald Trump’s administration.

The event, which will close in the afternoon, is traditionally held the day after International Workers Day, where every year most of the invited delegates walk together with the Cuban people in Revolution Square Jose Marti in Havana.
