World Trade Unions condemn destabilizing attempts against Cuba

Athens, Jul 14 (Prensa Latina) The World Federation of Trade Unions on Wednesday condemned the recent destabilizing attempts arranged and financed from the United States to generate chaos and justify a foreign military intervention in Cuba.

On a communiqué issued here, the organization that groups 105 million workers in 133 countries expressed its solidarity with the Cuban people, and demanded respect for the right of the Cuban people to decide their future, without external interference.

Those over 100 million workers also demanded the lifting of the US blockade against Cuba, which has been in force for the last 60 years, which, they affirmed, generates serious problems in the economy and life of that nation.

We salute the Cuban workers, who during the pandemic also demonstrated the solidarity and internationalism of a system that does not treat health and the needs of the people as merchandise, and opposes the exploitation of man by man, they stated in the text.

On Monday, President Miguel Diaz-Canel called for unity among Cubans at a time when the country is under harassment by the United States and faces destabilization attempts.

The head of State urged respect among citizens and to get rid of feelings of hatred, vulgarity and indecent behavior.

Such appeals respond to incidents promoted from social networks from Florida, United States, with acts of violence and vandalism by marginal elements and not a few with criminal records.
