Declaration of the WFTU on the recent events in Cuba: Those responsible for the situation, now pretend to be the protectors of the people!

Once again, imperialist circles, led by the United States, are defiantly trying to exploit the discontent of Cuban citizens over the shortcomings of the country's internal market. They are trying to do so, to redouble their attacks and to undermine in every way the revolutionary choice of the Cuban people for their socialist future. 

The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its solidarity with the people in struggle and the government of Cuba, who are once again being subjected to the consequences of the murderous blockade imposed on the country and the attempts of external intervention.

It is obvious that the known circles, those who are trying by all means to overthrow the Cuban revolution, are trying to take advantage of the discontented reactions of the citizens to the existing shortages, to exert pressure and intensify the attacks against the socialist state of Cuba.

It is unacceptable that those responsible for the shortages and the situation, due to the criminal blockade imposed, are now trying to pretend to be the protectors of the heroic Cuban people.

The class-conscious trade union movement stands in solidarity with Cuba and supports the non-negotiable right of its people to decide for themselves their present and future. We demand the immediate withdrawal of the anti-democratic and anti-popular blockade, which for more than 6 decades has hindered access to essential resources, limited economic development and impeded their right to self-determination.
