Labor Leaders to Converge for Cuban May Day March
The traditional May Day march in Cuba promises to be a big event next Tuesday with more than 900 labor leaders from 225 organizations and 52 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Africa confirming their attendance.
Among those expected is George Mavrikos, general-secretary of the World Federation of Trade Unions, scheduled to arrive in Havana on Sunday.
Over two hundred members of the foreign press have already been accredited to cover the International Worker’s Day rally.
A number of the labor leaders will be participating the following day at the International Solidarity Meeting to take place at the Havana Convention Center. Many will also attend the Sixth Hemisphere Conference against Free Trade Agreements and pro Peoples Integration on May 3 to 5 in the Cuban capital.
