In November 2019, nearly 1500 activists, lawyers, union leaders, teachers, students and representatives of social and political movements throughout Latin America attended the Anti-imperialist Convening of Solidarity for Democracy and Against Neoliberalism in Havana, Cuba. The Guild participated in this precedential showing of regional solidarity, which included numerous sessions on strengthening democracy, challenging unilateral sanctions and economic intervention and stopping neoliberal presence and policies throughout the world. Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, former President Raul Castro and President Nicholas Maduro of Venezuela were all in attendance. ■
