An important biological species is endangered due to the accelerated and progressive destruction of its natural living conditions: man.

We are becoming aware of this problem only now when it is almost too late to tackle it.

It is worthwhile indicating that the main responsibility for the brutal destruction of the environment lies with the consumer societies. They are the offspring of the old colonial metropolises and of imperialist policies that also begot the poverty and backwardness which are today the scourge of the overwhelming majority of humanity.

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.

This statement was approved by DSA’s National Political Committee (NPC).

Democratic Socialists of America stands in solidarity with the people of Cuba and categorically opposes the U.S. economic blockade imposed on Cuba by the United States and its allies, as mandated by our 2019 Convention Resolution 62.

U.S. political and economic policies vis-à-vis Cuba have had a devastating effect on the Cuban people and have hindered the development of ties of solidarity between citizens of our countries. We stand opposed to U.S. imperialism and to economic sanctions or other actions that would undermine the self-determination of the Cuban people. We also oppose the continued existence of the U.S. Naval Base at Guantánomo Bay.

Comrade First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee, Army General Raul Castro Ruz,
Comrade Lazo,
Comrade Rodriguez,
Dr Eusebio Leal,
Colleague Foreign Minister of the Republic of The Gambia Mamadou Tangara,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Friends,

It is a great honour and privilege for me to visit the National Capitol building, which was designed by architects from Havana, Evelio Govantes and Félix Cabarrocas. This building is highly symbolic for the Cuban statehood and the people of Cuba, embodying the continuity of eras and generations. It is here that the tomb of an unknown independence fighter who fought for the freedom of his homeland is located, a sacred place for every Cuban. It is the seat of Cuba’s National Assembly of People’s Power, which seeks effective solutions for ensuring the steady advancement of Cuba’s socioeconomic development.

Minister,
My dear Bruno,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Colleagues,

The talks that we have held were very rich in content. We carried out a 360-degree review of the strategic relations between Russia and Cuba, primarily in the context of the agreements of principle that were reached during Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez’s visit to Moscow in November 2018.

As Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla has said, we had a meeting in May 2019 in Moscow. These regular contacts reflect our commitment to further stepping up our relations in all areas without exception.

Solidarity messages of the Communist Parties all around the World on the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution

CP USA, Greetings and an Appreciation of the Cuban Revolution, on the occasion of its 60th anniversary

On January 1, 2019, the Cuban people will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of your revolutionary triumph.  Millions of struggling people around the world, including in our own country, the United States, will celebrate with you...

In spite of all difficulties, Cuba’s revolutionary government played an enormous role in the people’s struggles far beyond its borders.  National liberation movements all over the world were inspired and invigorated by the Cuban example. Above all, the Cuban role, lasting over several decades, in the ending the fascist apartheid regime in South Africa was a gift of the Cuban Revolution not only to the South African people, but to all of Africa and to humanity.
When, at the end of the 1980s, and culminating in 1991, the socialist governments of the USSR and the other Eastern European states collapsed, Cuba was plunged into another dangerous crisis.  By the creative response of the Cuban government, party and people during the “Special Period”, Cuba was able to overcome the new danger.

Comandante Raúl Castro Ruz, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba:

On January 1, 2019, the Cuban people will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of your revolutionary triumph.  Millions of struggling people around the world, including in our own country, the United States, will celebrate with you.

At the end of the day of deliberations, in the evening hours, the final Declaration of the meeting was issued, which, among other matters of regional interest, ratifies the support and recognition of the coalition to President Nicolás Maduro Moros, to whom they augur the success of his management at the head of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela from the inauguration of next January 10.

To increase the integrationist ties between the countries that make up the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Treaty of Commerce of the Peoples (ALBA-TCP) in defense of sovereignty, which is threatened by the pretensions and interests of capitalism, is the proposal of David Choquehuanca, General Secretary of the aforementioned Latin American and Caribbean organization.
