Our Friends in The South

There was another City Hall sponsored conference in February. Here Lib Dem Mike Tuffrey unearths the details:

Mike Tuffrey: Could you give the details of the topics discussed and progress made at the 'European conference of solidarity with the people of Latin America and the Caribbean' in City Hall on the 24th and 25th of February? Could you also inform me who hosted the event and the sort of organisations and individuals who attended?

(As if we couldn't guess)

Ken Livingstone: The event was organised by a number of trade unions and the Cuba Solidarity Campaign, and I agreed to provide City Hall as the venue. The event was attended by 260 delegates from 20 countries, mostly from trade unions across Europe. Amongst the issues discussed were: solidarity with Cuba, the experiences of Latin American counterparts and the EU's approach to the American blockade of Cuba.
