INTERVENTO Movimento NO Dal Molin di VICENZA

Buon giorno compagne e compagni,

mi chiamo Agnese e parlo in nome delle donne che fanno parte del movimento NO Dal Molin contro le basi militari degli Stati Uniti a Vicenza.

In particolare abbiamo lottato contro la costruzione della terza Base Militare.

Le compagne Adriana e Ofelia, che sono venute da noi l’anno scorso, ci hanno fatto conoscere la Base di Guantánamo; ed oggi sono qui per darvi la nostra solidarietà. È un fatto molto grave che gli Stati Uniti occupino da più di 100 anni una parte del vostro territorio contro la volontà del governo e del popolo cubano.

Come è vergognoso il blocco economico verso il vostro paese.

Vengo dall’Italia, fedele alleato degli Stati Uniti, con i quali 75 anni fa il governo ha firmato un accordo, ancora segreto, per ospitare sul nostro territorio basi militari statunitensi.

L’Italia è al centro del Mare Mediterraneo, il nostro paese è usato come una portaerei che permette alle truppe statunitensi di arrivare rapidamente in Africa, in Medio Oriente e in Russia.

Per questo motivo non ci sono solo le Basi di Vicenza, ma molte altre.

Le principali sono:

–  Camp Darby che è il più grande deposito di armi fuori dagli Stati Uniti.

È il centro che permette il rifornimento globale di truppe, armi, forniture, via mare attraverso il vicino porto di Livorno.

Napoli, dove attracca la Sesta Flotta e dove la marina militare statunitense ha spostato la sua sede per il controllo del mare Mediterraneo e del Mar Nero.

–  la base aerea di Aviano che è una grande area di sosta e decollo per ogni operazione di guerra. Da Aviano sono partiti gli aerei per le operazioni di guerra in Iraq e Jugoslavia.

In questa base e in quella di Ghedi sono stoccate 70 bombe nucleari, nonostante l’Italia abbia ratificato il Trattato di Non Proliferazione nucleare, che le vieta di ospitare tali ordigni.

 – Sigonella, in Sicilia, che è la seconda più trafficata stazione aereonavale in Europa e destinata a diventare la capitale per l’uso di droni, cioè dei velivoli senza pilota destinati a condurre i futuri conflitti mondiali. I droni già operano con compiti di osservazione e sorveglianza. Ad essi si aggiungono i droni killer per operazioni di attacco e omicidi mirati. – Niscemi, in Sicilia, dove, all’interno di una pineta protetta, è attiva una base di telecomunicazioni che fa parte di un sistema di comunicazioni chiamato

Actualización del estado de ecosistema marino costero de la Bahía de Guantánamo.

Por: MsC. Blanca Yudith Matos Pons MsC. Alexander Fernández Velázquez

Territorio ocupado por los Estados Unidos contra la voluntad soberana del pueblo de Cuba.

Instalación ubicada ilegalmente en un área de 117.6 kilómetros cuadrados del territorio de Cuba ocupada desde 1903. Resultado de un convenio para las estaciones carboneras y navales firmados por el gobierno de Cuba y Estados Unidos presidido por Tomás Estrada Palma, en circunstancias en el que el país no poseía prácticamente independencia alguna, a partir de la imposición de una enmienda aprobada por el Congreso de los Estados Unidos y firmado en 1901, conocida como Enmienda Platt.

Sumado a este convenio de febrero de 1903, el 22 de mayo de ese mismo año, se firmó un Tratado Permanente de relaciones entre Cuba y Estados Unidos, en el que las 8 cláusulas de la Enmienda Platt son tomadas textualmente y convertidas en los artículos del Tratado.

Después del Triunfo de la Revolución a partir del 1 de enero de 1959 Estados Unidos convirtió el territorio usurpado de la Base Naval en Guantánamo en foco permanente de amenaza, provocación y violación de la soberanía de Cuba, con el propósito de crearle dificultades al proceso revolucionario.

El Medio Ambiente no estuvo ajeno a dichas ocupaciones, amenazas y dificultades para su conservación e integridad.

Cuba establece medidas en correspondencia con el Sistema de Monitoreo Ambiental en el perímetro fronterizo de la Base Naval en Guantánamo, vinculados por la Unidad de Medio Ambiente del CITMA y otras instituciones como Sanidad Vegetal Provincial, Veterinaria Provincial y la Brigada de la frontera, para estudiar:

1-Suelo

2-Flora

3-Fauna

4-Calidad del agua de la Bahía de Guantánamo

¨Monitoreo de la calidad ambiental del ecosistema de la bahía de Guantánamo¨.

Espacios:

1.Las bahías de Guantánamo y Puerto Escondido.

2.Los humedales.

3.Los paisajes de alto valor estético con baja presencia de elementos antrópicos

Objetivos de monitoreos realizados por centros e instituciones para estudios marinos. BIOECO y CIMAB

  • Actualizar la calidad hidroquímica en las aguas de la bahía de Guantánamo.
  • Evaluar la calidad sanitaria de las aguas superficiales en el interior de la bahía.

Message from the participants of “HongohCulturalForumWorkersSchool” in Japan

By: Hisao Tanuma, Rieko Murakami Tanuma and Yasuko Nakamura

Hello friends. We are from Japan. Five people come here for the International Peace Seminar. Three members belong to a school for workers, named “Hongoh Culture Forum Workers School”(From now on we call it “HOWS”)located in Tokyo. My name is Hisao Tanuma, one of its members. We arrived in Havana, in midnight on April 23rd. We joined the 14th May Day International Brigade from April 24th to May 2nd and have come to attend this event.

Today, we are going to speak about three things. The first is about our activities in Japan. The second is about solidarity activities with Cuba, and finally about the current political situation in the country.

Each member will speak now.

First, Ms. Yasuko Nakamura is going to speak.

My name is Yasuko Nakamura.

I am a retiree but still a member of the Publishing Workers Union.

Since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident which occurred eight years ago because of the big earthquakes, I have been active in the movements against nuclear power generation. It is because that the nuclear industry develops at the cost of workers at the plants and residents, and I believe it must be abandoned.

I will talk about our activities. In HOWS school, participants learn about solidarity with workers all over the world and transformation of the capitalist society, and join social movements with a standpoint of working class. 

Every March we celebrate the International Women’s Day with campaigns of “anti-war, peace and women’s emancipation”. At this year’s rally, we adopted the “Venezuela Solidarity Emergency Resolution” against the US government’s action on military intervention and counter-insurgency in Venezuela. For the event we received messages of solidarity from five overseas friendship groups. We had a message from Ambassador of the Republic of Cuba in Japan, too.

We have an annual meeting early November to commemorate the Great October Socialist Revolution in Russia. Last year when marking the 101st anniversary, we had a theme, “What is socialism? ―learning from experiences of Latin America.”

Our school is also engaged in activities such as improving workers’ rights, and we fight against the government-led constitutional reform, nuclear power generation and the US bases in Japan. In particular, we oppose construction of a new US military base in Henoko, Okinawa, which is now in a serious phase. Even at this moment, the beautiful sea of Henoko is being damaged by the reclamation work. We must stop the construction by any means.

Now Ms. Rieko・Murakami・Tanuma gives her remarks.

I am Rieko・Murakami・Tanuma. I had worked as a kindergarten teacher in a private kindergarten until ten years ago. There are few labor unions in private kindergartens in Japan (perhaps less than 0.1%). When I was 24years old, I organized a labor union with my colleagues in my workplace. I struggled to win the children’s right to learn and women’s rights in the workplace.Currently, I work on movements for women’s rights.

Italk about solidarity activities with Cuba. We participated in “The 8th Cuba Solidarity and Asia-Pacific Regional Conference” held in Manila, the Philippines, in April 2017. (Manila Conference)

We had met Ambassador Carlos M. Pereira in the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba in Tokyo before going to Manila. We asked the ambassador “Guantanamo base and US base in Okinawa are similar, right?” He replied, “No. Cuba, as a state, opposes existence of the base, but Japan, as the government, is in favor of US bases.” As you know, US bases inflict damages on both Okinawa and Guantanamo. However, attitudes of the Japanese and Cuban governments are completely different.

At the Manila Conference, we reported on solidarity actions with the Cuban people in Japan.

1In May of the same year, we held a lecture meeting in Tokyo to report on “Manila Conference”. We invited Mr. Damian Delgado Vazquez, Secretary of the Embassy of Cuba. He screened a news video of “Guantanamo Base” and talked about the US base. He told also that Cuban people have suffered from the US blockade for more than 50 years

Last December, we invited Ms. Patricia Flechilla, Secretary of the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba in Japan and she reported on “Women’s Policy of Cuba”, saying “women in Cuba have taken part in the revolution and won many rights”.

Hisao Tanuma is speaking again. I worked for an oil company for 40 years. I joined the labor union, while working in the company. I struggled to improve working conditions and counterattacked discrimination against union members.

Lastly, I briefly report on the political situation in Japan.

The seven-year-old Abe Bourgeois dictatorship has enacted numerous evil anti-people laws. Despite misbehaviors Prime Minister Abe stays on the top seat of the government: false statements, information manipulation and document forgery by the cabinet members, parliamentarians and bureaucrats have been disclosed one after another.

The Abe administration, neglecting decisions that Okinawan people have shown in many elections, constructs coarsely the base for US troops in Henoko and destroys Okinawa’s precious natural environment.

The government has discontinued its compensation policy to help victims and evacuees from radiation harm from the accident in Fukushima which happened in 2011, and promotes reactivation of power stations, ignoring disagreement of the majority of people.

At this same time, in Japan, commercial media are excited in praising Emperor as Prince Hirohito replaces with Emperor Akihito.

Japan’s militarism, which placed Emperor on the top, slaughtered 21 million Asians and killed 3.1 million Japanese people in the Asia-Pacific War. Japan’s ruling elites maintain the Emperor system, which is a proof that they do not reconsider what happened in the modern and contemporary history. We are against the Emperor System.

We are encouraged by the struggles of Cubans, Venezuelans and others around the world.

And we are truly happy that we could take part in this international peace seminar in Guantanamo. Returning home, we would like to share our experiences with as many friends as possible. I have taken many photographs and filmed videos as resources for this purpose.

Let’s fight for peace and people’s empowerment.

Let’s fight against war.

We will not give up.

This concludes our speeches. Thank you for your kind attention.

“La lucha por la paz desde la cultura y hacia la Agenda 2030.”

Por: Prof. Masc. Miriam Marañón Santa Cruz.

1-La Cátedra del Adulto Mayor y  la Sociedad Económica de Amigos del País son instituciones que trabajan de conjunto en la promoción de una cultura de paz en todas sus dimensiones y con todas las generaciones en tres áreas: docencia, investigación y extensión.

La educación como sistema es   la vía fundamental para que las personas adquieran una cultura general permeada de pensamiento y acciones de paz y como  es un derecho humano se potencia el ejercicio de los demás derechos humanos.

La CUAM desde la gerontología educativa realiza un trabajo transdiciplinar “con y para las personas mayores” con el objetivo de lograr un envejecimiento saludable. Nuestro país tiene un envejecimiento poblacional de un 20,1%. Es un verdadero reto producir cambios en personas mayores.

La SEAP desde su membrecía la cual está integrada por intelectuales y científicos promueve conocimientos que argumentan la necesidad de la paz para el desarrollo” sin paz no es posible el desarrollo”.

Esta organización de la sociedad civil cubana tiene su origen en el s. XVlll, al calor de destacadísimos criollos, por lo que fue el resultado del desarrollo histórico social y de las manifestaciones del surgimiento de la nacionalidad, siempre se ha destacado por sus acciones de paz.

En cada momento ha tenido el orgullo de servir a la Patria, a partir de soberanía y la autodeterminación de los pueblos, de ahí que se denomine “AMIGOS DEL PAÍS”.

2- La base teórica de la educación para la paz, que es un eje de la educación integral hay que extraerla de la propia historia de la Humanidad, en el caso concreto de nuestro país, hay una tradición  en los mejores exponentes de la Pedagogía  Cubana.

 Los acuciantes problemas que se expresan a escala internacional  como la pandemia de la violencia, requieren  para su  prevención,  mitigación  y  afrontamiento de que las  personas  adquieran  una  elevada cultura , donde la ética,  el  derecho y  la solidaridad, conduzcan a la justicia social que es  la base del desarrollo humano sostenible.

La educación para la paz es una vertiente del pensamiento  progresista   actual  e instrumento para el cambio social. Es un tema de la concepción  del  mundo  humanista,  ecológica,  bioética  del  s. XXI

Desde la década del 40 del siglo pasado hasta hoy existe  un movimiento de luchadores cubanos  por la paz que  ha dedicado todos sus esfuerzos a evitar que haya  aventuras belicistas por el mundo por eso, promueve la Proclama “América Latina zona de Paz”.

Entender la paz como valor y derecho significa convertirla en motivo que oriente nuestra actividad en las diversas esferas de la vida social: moral, intelectual. artística, política, educativa, ambientalista etc.  

 No basta con el estudio académico y  la aplicación de  la norma jurídica. Hay que realizar acciones  concretas, con estilo de trabajo permeado de una ética humanista. 

  “¿Para  qué,  sino para poner paz entre los hombres, han de ser los adelantos de las ciencias?                                                            

                                                                                    José Martí. OC t2 pág 292.

3-La CUAM realiza acciones con la niñez a través de encuentros intergeneracionales y concursos, porque las personas vinculadas a este programa se convierten en promotores culturales y agentes de cambios para “el mejoramiento humano” en los espacios en que participan.

En el Curso Básico se desarrolla un Seminario Taller denominado: “Educación para la Paz y los Derechos Humanos” donde las/los cursantes se apropian de conocimientos teóricos  y se actualizan sobre la situación actual”,  Esa influencia educativa la han recibido 18 832 personas sólo en la capital de nuestro país.

En el Seminario-Taller se reflexiona sobre estos temas:

1-La educación para la paz, un instrumento para el cambio social.  Sus  métodos.

2-El Movimiento Cubano  por la Paz y la Soberanía de los Pueblos,  EDUPAZ y la Sociedad  Económica de Amigos del  País.

3-El trato como síntesis del nivel alcanzado por la cultura de una persona.

4-Visualización de la violencia como fenómeno social.

 5-La trilogía  paz,    valores  y  derechos.

 6-El legado de las personas mayores.

  7- Biografía de luchadores Jornadas de reflexión.

Se ha estudiado la Agenda 2030 de Desarrollo Sostenible convirtiéndose en un eje transversal. 

¡Exigimos que se devuelva el territorio ocupado en Guantánamo por los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica!

¡Exigimos que cese el bloqueo económico y financiero así, como todo tipo de violencia en las relaciones que establece el derecho internacional!

¡Lucharemos sin descanso por la soberanía de nuestros pueblos, por la paz y el desarrollo!

Greetins from Monisha Rios to the 6th International Seminar for Peace and for the Abolition of Foreign Military Bases

Greetings,

My name is Monisha Rios.  I am a descendant of stolen, enslaved nations in the Puerto Rican diaspora and a former soldier in the United States army.  I did not understand what I had done, that I had signed up to be used as a human weapon by an imperialist government hell bent on global domination at any cost.  I did not know the history of my People or the cruelty with which the ruling class of the United States exploits and endangers us all.  Similarly, I did not know that by choosing psychology as my profession, I would be serving that same master. 

            In 1917, as the U.S. government prepared to enter World War I, the American Psychological Association encouraged its members to enter the military and apply their relatively young brand of science to the solving of military problems.  What began as the testing of recruits has evolved over 102 years into a massive and prominent institution in the military industrial complex.  Historical documents by proponents of military psychology, and military psychologists themselves chronical the mutually beneficial nature of this relationship.  The U.S. empire gets an exponentially more lethal military force and the psychological industry makes millions in profit.  More lands are stolen, more waters are poisoned, more Peoples are subjugated, more bases are built, and more children are killed as a result.      

As we come together here in our shared struggle against colonialism, imperialism, and the destruction of Mother Earth through base expansion and war, I ask for us to consider how we might work together to bring accountability to the American Psychological Association and dismantle the military psychology industry, a pillar of empire.

            With solidary love and respect, I thank you.              

ADPSD Speech in 6th International Seminar for Peace and for the Abolition of Foreign Military Bases

Dear Comrades and friends;

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the MOVPAZ in cooperation with WPC and ICAP for organising this important seminar on the important topic of the abolition of foreign military bases.  I also would like to thank all co-sponsoring organisations for their contribution to the success of this effort. 

It is indeed a great privilege it is to be in attendance on this the 60th anniversary year of the 1959 Revolution of the Cuban people, which dealt a bloody nose to Yankee Imperialism and a decisive setback in its designs for Cuba… A Revolution which lit a beacon of hope for so many people worldwide, though particularly those looking to resist Imperialism’s encroachment into the affairs and governance of independent countries in the Americas and their people’s desires to forge the path to a brighter and progressive future.

Almost 75 years after the cessation of the Second World War – the pretext on which a then-nascent US Imperialism further imposed its physical presence overseas and upon the jurisdictions of supposedly independent and sovereign countries; around 60 years on from the ‘end of empire’ and the beginning of the post-colonial era across many parts of Africa, Asia and the Caribbean; and almost 30 years since the end of the Cold War and the so-called “End of History”, the presence of military bases (chiefly of the US, though also of the former colonial powers) around the globe serve as a continuing reminder of the subjugation of independent and sovereign nations in the face of Imperialism’s aggression and exploitation… And, will continue to do so for as long as they remain. For they remain the last outposts of empire and of an order long discredited and relegated to the dustbin in the opinion of most people around the world. On what basis or foundation does the US, Britain or any other country for that matter purport to take and maintain control of part of the territory of another nation and to station its military there, contrary to the interests and wishes of the people there or their representatives in government?!

According to which overriding norms and school of morality does the US derive its legitimacy to hold onto any portion of Cuba, a long-independent nation and not a vassal state obliged to Washington’s interests and whims?! In the absence of any reasonable explanation, and with any pretence of legitimacy in the leasing of Guantanamo having long crumbled to dust, one can only deduce that the purpose of this base is the US’ desperate and stubborn refusal to let go of its one remaining stake in a country and people who showed them the door sixty years ago. Furthermore, the base – and the abomination its continued presence represents – serves to project US aggression and might towards any neighbours even tempted to look to Cuba and her people’s example… A dark and ominous signal to the Caribbean and Americas, a permanent reminder of the subordination of the aspirations, desires and rights of the people of these countries to Washington’s interests.

Comrades

In his great work Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism, V I Lenin saw that Imperialism had entered its most aggressive phase. Today this remains so. Imperialism seeks dominance for monopoly capitalist interests and to divide the territories of the world to maintain its profits based upon exploitation.

Socialist Cuba stands as a beacon of hope and inspiration against these Imperialist designs. However, Imperialism, wherever it is able to, seeks to destabilise Cuba and to try and punish its people for guarding their independence.

Following the Cuban Revolution and up to the present day, the leader of Imperialist aggression – the US – has kept up its economic and military threats against Cuba and still maintains a military foothold in Cuba itself.

The Guantanamo base may be a ‘safehold’ for the adventurist enemies of the US, but the US military not only maintains this facility as a jail beyond normal jurisdiction, it does so as a possible forward base for its reactionary aspirations against the Cuban people and those of Central and South America.

Guantanamo is Cuban territory. The US and Imperialism should leave Cuba, respect its sovereignty and right to self-determination and renounce any claims it has on Cuba and the Cuban people.

In the 21st Century, Cuba ventures ever forward. The Cuban people are steadfast in their resolve not to regress to the ways of poverty, injustice and exploitation, which are the main characteristics  of monopoly capitalism in its final desperate stage.

Dear Comrades,

The 21st century is in danger of becoming the most volatile epoch in the history of world politics and the struggle for peace and equality in international relations.

Today’s international situation is characterised by instability in many areas. The source of the instability is primarily the United States and its EU allies. They seek to bolster and support the economic, cultural and strategic interests of Imperialism around the globe.

It is the export of instability which provides a cover and a pretext for the US to seek to manipulate domestic and international politics. This is further reinforced by the global deployment of military hardware.

ADPSD-Iran is concerned that successive US administrations have employed essentially this same approach in relation to Iran. The current situation since Donald Trump assumed the presidency is a case in point…

The last 12 months have seen a dangerous rise in tensions between Iran on the one hand and the Trump administration and its regional allies, namely the Saudi Arabia and the apartheid regime of Israel, on the other.

The US Fifth Fleet has increased its manoeuvring to cover the Persian Gulf, Red Sea and Arabian Sea. The aircraft carrier, John C. Stennis, sailed into the Persian Gulf in December 2018, the first to do so since America’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal in May and breaking the longest carrier absence in the volatile region since at least the September 11 terror attacks.

Furthermore, US military bases are present in Bahrain, Djibouti, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, UAE, and Jordan and Israel – together comprising an extremely threatening scenario for Iran, which can quite legitimately claim it has been gradually encircled, and upping the ante for a disastrous conflict.  

Dear Comrades and friends;

Amidst these difficult and turbulent times, it would be easy to take a despondent world view. However, the forces of international aggression are not having it all their own way. The 21st Century also holds the possibility of international peace and friendship between the peoples. Across all continents, those standing for peace, equality and de-escalation are mobilising. A rejection of aggression, demagoguery and intransigence in national and international relations is gaining momentum and ground. The dual practices of aggression and force are being rejected by growing numbers, not least amongst the youth. Those who seek to spread chaos and disunity can and must be exposed and isolated.

Peaceful co-existence is not only possible, it is necessary to defeat real and psychological warfare and for continued human progress and it should be the primary aim of world politics and the international order in the century that lies ahead.

Thank you

VI SEMINARIO INTERNACIONAL DE PAZ Y POR LA ABOLICIÓN DE LAS BASES MILITARES EXTRANJERAS

El Consejo Mundial por la Paz, el Movimiento Cubano por la Paz y la Soberanía de los Pueblos (MOVPAZ) y el Instituto Cubano de Amistad con los Pueblos (ICAP), con el coauspicio de la Organización de Solidaridad con los Pueblos de África, Asia y América Latina (OSPAAAL), del Centro Martin Luther King Jr. (CMLK) y del Grupo de Reflexión Oscar Arnulfo Romero, convocan al VI Seminario Internacional de Paz y por la Abolición de las Bases Militares Extranjeras que tendrá lugar en Guantánamo, Cuba, del 4 al 6 de mayo del 2019.

Nuevamente esta VI edición del Seminario tendrá como sede a la ciudad de Guantánamo, capital de la provincia homónima, donde existe la más antigua base militar de los Estados Unidos en el mundo, y que hoy también es centro internacional de torturas y violaciones de derechos humanos que concita el repudio de las personas amantes de la paz en todo el planeta.

Este seminario congregará una vez más a luchadores por la paz, antibelicistas y amigos solidarios de Cuba y de las más justas causas de los pueblos, para exigir la eliminación de las bases e instalaciones extranjeras de los países de nuestra región y de todo el mundo, y el cese de la carrera militarista y armamentista que desarrolla el imperialismo estadounidense junto a sus aliados de la OTAN e Israel y que colocan al mundo en la antesala de una nueva conflagración mundial.

Asimismo, se realizará en momentos en que se expande una gran ofensiva del imperialismo y las oligarquías latinoamericanas contra los procesos democráticos y progresistas del continente, que empleando argucias e infamias políticas y mediáticas, así como la implementación de mecanismos de extorsión económica y mediante la judicialización de la política buscan a toda costa revertir los logros alcanzados por los gobiernos progresistas en defensa de sus pueblos y de su genuina independencia y soberanía.

Este Seminario Internacional se llevará a efecto, además, en el contexto del recrudecimiento de las políticas hostiles y agresivas de la nueva Administración estadounidense contra Cuba, que ha impuesto de manera unilateral un retroceso al proceso de normalización de las relaciones entre los dos países iniciado en diciembre del 2014 y que se empeña en fortalecer el criminal bloqueo económico, comercial y financiero contra la mayor de las Antillas.

Será un espacio para fortalecer la Coalición Global en contra de las Bases Militares de Estados Unidos y de la OTAN aprobada en Dublín, Irlanda y en el  marco de este VI Seminario quedará oficialmente constituido el 23 de febrero como el “Día Mundial por la Paz y contra las Bases Militares Extranjeras”.

Una vez más, se reiterará la importancia  y la total vigencia de la Proclama de América Latina y El Caribe como Zona de Paz, aprobada por todos los Jefes de Estado y de Gobierno de la Región reunidos en La Habana en enero del 2014, durante la II Cumbre de la CELAC.

Los interesados en asistir al VI Seminario podrán enviar sus solicitudes a las direcciones de correo electrónico: 6seminarioguantanamo@movpaz.cu  especialista2@movpaz.cu

Los participantes dispondrán de 15 minutos para las presentaciones de ponencias e intervenciones en cuyo caso se solicita que los textos puedan ser remetidos con suficiente antelación a los correos anteriormente mencionados a los efectos de la traducción al idioma correspondiente.

La Agencia de Viajes AMISTUR CUBA S.A del Instituto Cubano de Amistad con los Pueblos (ICAP) será la encargada de garantizar los alojamientos, transportación, y la logística general del evento. Los interesados pueden contactar a la Especialista Comercial Yania Marrero León por las direcciones electrónicas: eventas@amistur.cu.

 VI SEMINAR FOR PEACE AND FOR THE ABOLITON OF FOREIGN MILITARY BASES.

The World Council for Peace, the Cuban Movement for Peace and the Sovereignty of Peoples (MOVPAZ) and the Cuban Institute of Friendship with Peoples (ICAP), with the co-sponsorship of the Organization of Solidarity with the Peoples of Africa, Asia and Latin America (OSPAAAL), the Martin Luther King Jr. Center (CMLK) and the Oscar Arnulfo Romero Reflection Group, call for the VI International Seminar on Peace and the Abolition of the Foreign Military Bases to be held in Guantánamo, Cuba, from May 4 to 6, 2019.

Once again, the importance and full validity of the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace approved by all the Heads of State and Government of the Region meeting in Havana in January 2014, during the II Summit of CELAC will be reiterated.

Once more, this 6th edition of the Seminar will be held in the city of Guantánamo, capital of the homonymous province, where exists the oldest US military base in in the world, which also functions today as an international center of torture and human rights violations (Guantánamo Bay Detention Camp) that arouses the repudiation of people who love peace all over the planet. .

This seminar will once again bring together fighters for peace and against-war solidarity friends of Cuba and friends of the most just causes of the peoples, in order to demand the elimination of foreign bases and facilities from the countries of our region and from the whole world, as well as the cessation of the militaristic and arms race that US imperialism develops along with its NATO and Israel allies and that sets the world in the forefront of a new world conflagration.

Likewise, it will be held at a time when a great offensive of imperialism and the Latin American oligarchies are going against the democratic and progressive processes of the continent. This imperialistic offensive attempts to reverse by all means, the achievements of progressive governments in defense of their peoples and their genuine independence and sovereignty through political and media tricks and infamies, as well as through the implementation of mechanisms of economic extortion and through the tendency to deal with political issues through the courts

This International Seminar will also take place in the context of the intensification of hostile and aggressive policies of the new US Administration against Cuba, which has unilaterally imposed a setback to the process of normalization of relations between the two countries initiated in December 2014 and that is committed to strengthen the criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade against the largest of the Antilles.

It will be a space to strengthen the Global Coalition against the Military Bases of the United States and NATO approved in Dublin, Ireland; and within the framework of this VI Seminar the “World Day for Peace and against Foreign Military Bases” will be officially constituted on February 23.

Those interested in attending the VI Seminar may direct their requests to the following email addresses: 6seminarioguantanamo@movpaz.cu, and especialista2@movpaz.cu

Participants will have 10 minutes for presentations of papers and speeches. It is requested that the texts can be sent sufficiently in advance to the aforementioned emails for the purpose of translation into the corresponding language.

The Travel Agency AMISTUR CUBA SA of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) will be in charge of guaranteeing the general logistics of the event. To obtain the information related to the terrestrial services package, you can contact the Commercial Specialist Yania Marrero León through the Email address: eventas@amistur.cu

The preliminary Program of the VI Seminar and the offers of the terrestrial services package offered by AMISTUR for the participants in the Seminar are attached.
