III Call Anti-imperialist Meeting of Solidarity, for Democracy
and against Neoliberalism
Havana, November 1-3, 2019
The Anti-imperialist Meeting of Solidarity, for Democracy and
against Neoliberalism will take place in Havana from
November 1 to 3 of this year, organized by the Cuban Institute
of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), Central Organization of
Cuban Trade Unions (CTC), along with the Cuban Chapter of
Social Movements and the Continental Conference for
Democracy and against Neoliberalism.
The meeting in Havana expresses the Cuban Revolution´s
decision to respond to the demand of the political, social
left-wing and the Solidarity Movement with Cuba that our
country continues to be a meeting point of the peoples
struggles in our continent.
We have proposed the event to be a real contribution to
confronting the current counterrevolutionary offensive of US
imperialism, to the search for the widest possible unity of the
leftist forces in the region and to strengthening militant solidarity
with the just causes defended by the peoples. In the current
political situation, marked by the aggressiveness of the
Trump administration, new ways will be sought to reinforce
solidarity with these causes in the world, mainly in our region.
In November, a heterogeneous representation of the
United States and Canada will also be present in Havana,
friends who have always been on the side of justice and who
since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution have been in solidarity
with us. We will also have important intellectuals, committed
to the liberating struggles of the peoples.
The growing hostility against Cuba and other countries in the
region, the judicial persecution of progressive leaders, the
imposition of recycled neoliberalism, are distinctive features of
the current North American policy towards Latin America and
the Caribbean that awaken the fighting capacity of
Latin American and Caribbean peoples.
In the same way, the mobilization for the occasion of hundreds
of social fighters, political leaders, intellectuals, peasants, women,
indigenous people, solidarity activists, among others; will
constitute a formidable encouragement to the heroic resistance
of the Cuban people, determined to defeat the Helms Burton Act,
the blockade and to carry forward the updating of its economic
and social development model.
Faced with pessimism and the claudication of some, the
participants in the anti-imperialist solidarity meeting will respond
with the strengthening of the struggle moral and the deep
conviction that the Latin America and the Caribbean peoples
will continue marching towards their second
and definitive independence.
The Organizing Committee of the Anti-imperialist Meeting of
Solidarity, for Democracy and against Neoliberalism, calls for
an event that highlights the Cubans´ best traditions of hospitality
and their commitment to independence, justice, peace and
fraternity among the peoples.
