The day before, the general secretary of the Cuban Workers' Union (CTC), Ulises Guilarte, highlighted that this May 1 will express more strongly the spirit of unity of the Cuban people in the midst of difficult circumstances, due to harassment by the United States government. United States and its policy of economic, financial and commercial siege against Cuba.

He also praised the participation in the events for the proletarian festival of more than a thousand foreign visitors who make up the solidarity committees with Cuba from almost 50 countries, present in the Cuban capital for an international meeting of solidarity with the island.

International Workers' Day was established since 1889 to be celebrated every May 1 by agreement of the Socialist Workers' Congress held in Paris.

Since then, in many countries the anniversary is a reason for festivities, but in others it’s an opportunity for demonstrations and struggles for the rights of the working class.
