Washington, Oct 30 (P L) U.S. activist Gail Walker considered it important to support Cuba at the Anti-Imperialist Meeting of Solidarity, for Democracy and against Neoliberalism, when Cuba is currently under increasing attack from the U.S. government.
Walker, executive director of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization-Pastors for Peace, will participate with other Americans in the event that will take place in Havana from November 1 to 3, with the presence of social movements and progressive forces from around the world.
We know that Cuba is under attack by Donald Trump’s administration, and we believe it is very significant to express our solidarity with him and meet with other members of the island’s community of friends around the world, Walker told Prensa Latina.
According to the activist, the meeting will be an opportunity to continue learning about the impact on Cuba of the U.S. executive’s continued aggressions, and to discuss how people defending the West Indian nation can expand their work.
We know that supporting Cuba means supporting social justice and other causes that we find very close to our hearts,’ added the co-director of the National Network of Solidarity with Cuba in the United States.
Walker also argued that defending Cuba is supporting Venezuela, another nation against which Trump’s government deploys numerous attacks.
We hope to learn more and return strengthened to continue our work, added the activist, who considered it necessary for people from other latitudes to know that within the United States there is a strong movement opposed to Washington’s blockade against Cuba.
Sometimes, when I go to other countries, it’s a surprise for Cuba’s friends at the international level to know how robust the opposition is against that siege here, and how long we’ve been in that confrontation, he added.
