    14ymedio, 8 April 2105 — Several Panamanian leftist organizations have
    forwarded to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Panama, Isabel de Saint
    Malo, a letter of protest against the activities organized by the groups
    in opposition to the governments of Cuba and Venezuela in the forums
    being held before the Summit of the Americas. The letter was sent last
    Monday and has been published today in the official Cuban media.

    The signers of the text consider that the dissidents, “Have as their aim
    to use our country as a platform to conspire and coordinate actions
    intended to interfere in the internal matters of these two nations.”
    Therefore, they ask, “Very respectfully that the national government,
    through the Foreign Ministry, take measures to prevent these
    activities.” The agenda of the forums whose suspension they are asking
    was presumably added to the letter, although it has not been disclosed
    in the official media.

    The signatories specify that they do not oppose the participation of the
    opponents in the Summit’s forums, but rather, “The conspiratorial
    activities and the public demonstrations outside the Summit, that have a
    perverse intention, against the two sister nations.” However, they warn
    that if these measures they have requested are not taken they will see
    themselves “obliged” to respect their country, “and so avoid that it is
    used for interventionist conspiracies and demonstrations and the
    internal matters of other brother countries.”

    The letter concludes by holding the Government of Panama responsible for
    what might happen if it does not take measures to avoid the forums. “If
    these activities and provocation and interference are not prevented, the
    national government will be responsible for whatever lamentable
    situation it might present.”

    The organizations signing the letter are the Independent Movement of
    National Refoundation (MIREN), the Panama National Workers Center
    (CNTP), The Authentic Workers Federation (FAT), the CocaCola Workers
    Union, The National Brewery and Others (SITRAFCIREBGASCELIS), the Union
    Federation of the Workers of the Republic of Panama (FSTRP), the Wide
    Colon Front (FAC), the Veraguas Association of Educators (AEVE), the
    National Coordinator of Solidarity with Cuba, the Ecological Collective
    Voices (COVEXC), the Student Group of Transformative Thinking and Action
    (PAT), the Conscience Renewal Student Group (CORE), the Independent
    Association of Functionaries of the CSS (AIFCSS), the Panama Journalists
    Union (SPP), The Polo Citizenry, and the National Front for the Defense
    of Economic and Social Rights (FRENADESO).
