Cuba Protests

The Communications Workers of America Local 7250 stands with the Cuban people protesting for freedom since the events of July 11 across several cities in Cuba.

In the first international call between our two nations and parent companies in 1917 where Cuba replied," I don't understand you." CWA 7250 understands /we come from a rich history since the beginning; with our founder Joseph Beirne, our union helped union leaders from The Federacion Sindical de Telefonos Cuba escape Cuba once Castro purged the labor movement in Cuba in the early '60s. CWA has always stood in full solidarity with Cuban workers and with the Cuban people in their struggle for labor, human and democratic rights.

CWA 7250 condemns the Cuban government's continued imprisonment, arrest, torture, and other acts of unconscionable harassment against its own people, the working class. CWA ask the Cuban regime to hear their people and serve their needs at this vital moment rather than enriching themselves and using violence and terror. We ask the CWA and all other unions and movements for justice in this country to give solidarity to the protest movement, grassroots organizations, and independent unions in Cuba - and not to the dictatorship.

El Local 7250 de Communications Workers of America apoya al pueblo cubano que protesta por la libertad desde los eventos del 11 de julio en varias ciudades de Cuba.

En la primera llamada internacional entre nuestras dos naciones y empresas matrices en 1917, Cuba respondió: "No te entiendo". CWA 7250 entiende que venimos de una rica historia desde el principio; con nuestro fundador Joseph Beirne, nuestro sindicato ayudó a los líderes sindicales de la Federación Sindical de Teléfonos Cuba a escapar de Cuba una vez que Castro purgó el movimiento obrero en Cuba a principios de los años sesenta. CWA siempre se ha mantenido en total solidaridad con los obreros cubanos y con el pueblo cubano en su lucha por los derechos laborales, humanos y democráticos.

CWA 7250 condena el continuo encarcelamiento, arresto, tortura y otros actos de hostigamiento desmedido del gobierno cubano contra su propio pueblo, la clase obreros. CWA le pide al régimen cubano que escuche a su gente y atienda sus necesidades en este momento vital en lugar de enriquecerse y usar la violencia y el terror. Pedimos a la CWA y a todos los demás sindicatos y movimientos por la justicia en este país que se solidaricen con el movimiento de protesta, las organizaciones de base y los sindicatos independientes en Cuba, y no con la dictadura.
