Alan Kidney, Workers’ Party International Secretary, attended the Second Meeting of Theoretical Publications of Left Parties and Movements in Havana, Cuba from the 12th to the 14th of February representing our Party’s theoretical journal, ThinkLeft.

The conference was attended by 97 foreign delegates from 36 countries, representing 43 organisations and 36 media, as well as 59 Cubans.

The event was organised by Cuba Socialista, the theoretical magazine of the Communist Party of Cuba. Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez was in attendance for a session on the second day of the conference.

In panels and workshops a wide range of topics were covered, including collective thought on the unity of the leftist forces and their publications and related content such as revolutionary theory and practice, the challenges of the media war of imperialism, collective editorial actions in defence of the historical memory, national sovereignty and social justice of our people, the confrontation with cultural colonialism, and the challenges for left-wing youth in times of neofascism.

Delegates to the Second Meeting of Theoretical Publications of Left Parties and Movements approved a declaration in solidarity with the people of Palestine, which condemns the clear violations of international humanitarian law committed by Israel in Gaza, rejects the genocide and the forced displacements to which it is subjected the civilian population, and denounces the responsibility and complicity of the US empire in repeatedly obstructing the action of the United Nations Security Council for a ceasefire.
