The traditional scenario of the VolksstimmeFest, annually organized by the Communist Party of Austria (KPÖ, by its German initials); held from 31 August to 1 September in Vienna, was an appropriate occasion to denounce the illegal economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by US against Cuba and its tightening by President Trump Administration.
The journey to Havana of the 10 trucks which collect solid urban waste, donated by the city of Vienna to the Cuban capital, begins as part of the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the Foundation of the village of San Cristóbal de La Habana.
The farewell ceremony was organized by the Viennese administration, in one of the facilities in charge of waste management, street cleaning and the vehicle fleet.
Dear Martina Ableidinger,
I would like to express our deepest gratitude to the Mayor of the city of Vienna, for the donation of 10 urban solid waste collection trucks, in the framework of the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the city of Havana.
The historic cooperation between Havana and Vienna is strengthened with this significant donation, which will contribute to make the Cuban capital a cleaner, more real and wonderful city.
