Workers of the Americas united against interference

Jun 10, 2022

Free Alex Saab Events

The Workers' Summit of the Americas will begin on Friday 10 June in Tijuana, Mexico, where more than 40 social organisations, movements and trade unions from the north and south of the continent will participate.

This summit, twinned with the People's Summit held in Los Angeles, USA, aims to "combat the violence" exercised by "US and Canadian imperialism" against all Americans.

The official website points out that the world is witnessing "a process of recolonisation of our peoples, expressed in the disproportionate growth of racism, poverty, unemployment and job insecurity, the environmental deterioration of territories, gender and cultural violence, and the criminalisation of migration".

Organisation and themes

The conferences in Tijuana will bring together labour organisations from Mexico, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba, Honduras and the United States, as well as official delegates from progressive governments in the region.

"All pacifist and anti-imperialist groups north of the Rio Grande are invited to join our coalition," the invitation to the event states.

The impact of the so-called economic sanctions against Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, imposed by the United States and the European Union, will be discussed.

They will address growing poverty; unemployment and job insecurity; violence against trade unionists and social activists; gender, sexual and cultural diversity; structural racism and violence against indigenous, native and Afro-descendant peoples; and the criminalisation of migration.
