Granma | 4 November, 2016
Different sectors of Cuban society will come together today, November 4, in the University of Havana’s Ignacio Agramonte Plaza to observe Continental Day for Democracy and Against Neoliberalism.
The events focused on defending the island’s sovereignty were planned by organizations which are part of the city’s Social Movements Articulated with the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America.
Marches in several Latin American countries, including Mexico, Peru, Panama, Uruguay, Paraguay and Brazil have been called to protest neoliberalism, under the banner of “Not one step back! The peoples’ struggle continues for integration, self-determination, and sovereignty and against free trade and transnationals!”
The decision to hold the continental day of protest on November 4 was made by participants in the hemispheric conference held on the 10th anniversary of the defeat of the U.S. sponsored Free Trade Agreement of the Americas, last year in Havana, with the purpose of demonstrating the strength and resistance of the left across the continent.
