Neolib Trade Deals Zapped in Cuba

Havana, Apr 11 (Prensa Latina) The 7th Hemispheric Meeting on the Struggle against Free Trade Agreements and for the Peoples Integration concludes Friday in this capital, after several days of debates attended by delegates from 32 countries.


Representatives of grass-root organizations denounced the negative consequences of free trade agreements in the region that establish the neoliberal system as economic policy.

On Thursday, the participants condemned the irrational strategy to produce biofuels, which has rocketed prices and threatens food security, particularly in underdeveloped nations.

The increase of military bases in Latin America and the Caribbean was also censured in a panel, noting that over a dozen zones of occupation have been created in the area in the last years.

Bertha Caceres, from the Civic Council of Honduran Grass-root and Indigenous Organizations (COPINH), denounced the excessive mobilizations of US soldiers with blatant pretext of offering social aid. In addition, delegates from Ecuador, Argentina, Cuba, and Mexico denounced the use of militarization of Latin American societies by the US and its allies.

Caleb McCarry, the US state department's Cuba transition coordinator, is due to visit the Foreign Office next Tuesday as part of his tour to drum up support for his project in Europe. So far this year's major achievement has been to get the Cuban cricket team excluded from taking part in a Twenty20 tournament in Tobago on the grounds that the Texan businessman hosting the events would have broken US laws against trading with Cuba. Maybe with the cricket season about to start here, his current task is to ensure that, with all the uncertainty in the cricket world, the MCC don't try and slip in a limited over game with Cuba.

Please explain Neolib? I'm not familiar with the term. As far as I know it's not liberals who want free trade deals.

How about Neocomm as a more apt description. That happy little gladparty chose Cuba, the bastion of industry and trade, to comment on it.
