Peace Seminar in Cuba Calls for Global Coexistence

The 2nd Peace Seminar for the Abolition of Foreign Military Bases begins Wednesday in the eastern province of Guantanamo with a call for peaceful coexistence worldwide.

Sponsored by the World Peace Council and the Cuban Movement for Peace and Sovereignty of the Peoples, the forum will analyze the disastrous consequences of military bases for the sovereignty of the peoples.

The meeting brings together representatives from 36 nations, included Cuba, which for more than a century has repudiated the U.S. military presence in the Guantanamo region of Caimanera.

The event, which concludes Thursday, will advocate world peace and oppose the military invasions of Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Delegates will gather today in the Mariana Grajales Revolution Square in Guantanamo to receive information about life in Cuba’s easternmost province.

Thursday’s agenda will take place in the town of Caimanera, which borders the military base imposed on Cuba since 1903 by the United States against the will of the island’s people and government.
