Venezuela denounces illegal US blockade at the 108th International Labor Conference
This Thursday, the People’s Power Minister for the Social Work Process, Eduardo Piñate, participated in the 108th International Labor Conference, held in Geneva, Switzerland.
During his speech, the Venezuelan representative said that despite the economic sabotage, the financial blockade, continued coups attempts and imperialist threats of invasion that seek to undermine the democratic structure in the country, the Bolivarian Government alerts the world about this type of actions outside international law, away from the most elementary logic of respect for the sovereignty of independent nations.

Within the framework of this centennial conference, we ratify the world that we will continue to struggle with everything we have at our disposal to defend the future of work, the future of the freedom of human beings and the future of humanity itself”, said Piñate.
The Head of the Venezuelan delegation also emphasized that “in our country we have much to say about this destructive phenomenon, and we have already referred to it in other international instances, the imperialist policies to impose gross privileges and great inequalities, openly conspire against the future of work”, in turn, he indicated that “in this decadent phase of capitalism, it is not only work that is in danger, but also the environment and humanity in general”.
Piñate denounced in his participation that “imperialism calls sanctions to what are really aggressions against the peoples of the world and attacks on their economies. It is necessary to conclude on the international stage that this imperialist behavior is the greatest source of human tragedies of today”.
