CAIMANERA, Guantanamo.- The final declaration of the Fourth International Workshop for Peace containing a condemnation of all forms of imperialist domination in the world and the abolition of foreign military bases, was made public a few metres from the Yankee warmongering enclave, installed here 117 years ago against the will of the Cuban people.
According to the text - read by Felipe Ferreira, vice president of the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation-, the 200 delegates condemned the US aggressive and interventionist policy aimed at its geopolitical purposes of domination, while they expressed the sentiments of the people of the world against foreign militarization and terrorism.
The Pacifists called for the cessation of the unjust and criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed for more than five decades against Cuba, in a blatant disregard for the overwhelming majority of the international community which routinely condemns it. And they disapproved the unjustifiable illegal occupation of the territory by the US Guantanamo naval base.
They also decried the creation on that portion of Cuban soil, at the beginning of the century, of a detention and torture centre where alleged terrorists are abused, without being subjected to any judicial process.
The close of the seminar, which became a public and mass event in the José Martí park of this community, was attended by Denny Legrá Azahares, first secretary of the Provincial Party Committee; and Nancy Acosta Hernandez, president of the Provincial Assembly of People's Power; Maria do Socorro Gomes, president of the World Peace Council (WPC); Silvio Platero Yrola, head of the Cuban Movement for Peace and Sovereignty of Peoples, sponsors of the seminar; and representatives of the diplomatic corps accredited in Cuba, among others.
In the morning, there was the launch of the book, The fruit that did not fall (Editorial San Luis), by Cuban historians Angel Jimenez Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez Barrios, a work that reflects everything about the US intervention in the Caribbean island.
The Commemorative Coin for the 65 years of the Cuban Movement for Peace and Sovereignty of Peoples (Movpaz) was also awarded to Maria do Socorro Gomes and to Alfred Mardher, president of the American Council for Peace.
