Guantanamo, November 19 (RHC)-- Peace activists from all over the world have again demanded the restitution to Cuba of the Guantanamo Naval Base, a portion of Cuban territory illegally occupied by the United States for over a century.

The claims were issued by delegates from many countries on Monday at the inauguration in the city of Guantanamo of the Third Seminar for Peace and the Elimination of Foreign Military Bases, underway through Wednesday.

The Seminar was opened by Silvio Platero, President of the Cuban Movement for Peace and Sovereignty of the Peoples, and is being attended by Brazilian pacifist, Maria do Socorro Gomez, Chairwoman of the World Peace Council, and former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark. Delegates from many countries have strongly criticized the illegality of the U.S. base, which is even used as a center of torture of prisoners from all over the world, who were accused of alleged terrorist activities.

The Third Seminar for Peace and the Elimination of Foreign Military Bases will close tomorrow, Wednesday, with a rally in the city of Caimanera, bordering the U.S. base.
