Panamanian Trade Unions Demand End of Blockade against Cuba

Panama, July 26 (Prensa Latina) The Panamanian Workers Central Union (CNTP) has delivered a letter to the US embassy, in which it demands the end of the blockade imposed by Washigton against Cuba.

The document accuses US legislation Helms-Burton Act and other forming the US economic, commercial and financial blockade of violating international law and peaceful coexistence.

‘We live the century of knowledge and the scientific-technical revolution, which allows the exchange and cooperation among people, with respect, without condition or subjugation of the strongest towards the weakest, ‘the letter said.

The CNTP recalled that the ‘cold war is past,’ so it makes no sense to revive it, ‘he said,’ because today’s world is multipolar, where multilateralism will prevail in the new economic and political order of the planet.

This same week another trade union, the Authentic Federation of Workers (FAT) of Panama, repudiated the US blockade against Cuba, through a public letter addressed to President Donald Trump, a document they also delivered to the US diplomatic mission in this capital.

FAT recalled that the United Nations repeatedly rejected and demanded the end of the blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba, and highlighted multiple times the right of countries to their self-determination and sovereignty, and asked for respect for ‘the brave people of Cuba’, who chose the path to socialism.

The document also rejected the activation of the Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, which increased aggression against Cuba and its economy, while trying to condemn ‘millions of men and women to the lack of medicines, food and other supplies necessary to exercise the right to live’.
