On behalf of the National Workers Union of Panama, Sonia de Montoya, who has traveled to the Antillean nation on other occasions to commemorate International Workers’ Day, indicated the popular and working class participation of the Antillean nation is impressive in these demonstrations and marches.
We have seen many times the Plaza de la Revolución decorated and it is always instructive to see the people and their workers parade, a benchmark for the union organizations of the continent, she remarked.
Likewise, she highlighted the spirit of resistance of Cubans in the face of more than six decades of economic, commercial and financial siege imposed by Washington that ignores the world demand for the cessation of the hostile policy.
In the call for this May 1, the general secretary of the Cuban Workers Central, Ulises Guilarte, advanced a day of demonstration of the indestructible unity of the people and their support for the immense work of equality and justice of the triumphant Revolution of 1959.
The appeal also affirms that the trade union movement will express its solidarity with the workers in the world who suffer “the impact of the crisis of the capitalist system, neoliberal policies and their negative effects on the growth of unemployment and the loss of their social benefits.”
