Havana, Nov 10 (ACN) Constant samples of fraternity and gratitude nuanced the XXVIII National Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba, held in the Colombian city of Medellin, reported the agency Prensa Latina.
Coming from different parts of Colombia, solidarity friends with the island met from November 7 to 9, in an event in which there was space for academic exchanges, music, poetry, dance and anecdotes.
Participants expressed support and solidarity with the Cuban people and their Revolution.
Our support for the government led by the president Miguel Diaz-Canel, who represents the new generations of Cuban revolutionaries, determined and prepared to give continuity to the work of the Revolution, expressed in the final declaration of the event.
Likewise, the rejection of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba for almost 60 years was a constant.
Our condemnation of the inhuman blockade that has generated and generates considerable losses to the people, they emphasized.
In that sense, they demanded their uprising 'for being a flagrant violation of the human rights of the people and compensation for the damages caused for more than half a century.'
They also demanded the immediate closure of the United States military base in Guantanamo (east of the island) and the return of this illegally occupied territory.
The gratitude to the largest of the Antilles for her contributions to regional peace and, in particular, to the peace process in Colombia, was also reiterated by the attendees. Aware that the Cuban Revolution has been and will always be in solidarity with all the just causes of the peoples of the world, our Movement also extends all its solidarity with the peoples who fight for their liberation in the world and with the progressive and changing processes that are developed in our region, they remarked.
We condemn the coup and destabilizing plans that are carried out against the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Bolivia; and we congratulate the Brazilian people and everyone in the world for the victory achieved with the release of teammate Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, they said.
Taking into account the current context, they agreed on the need to redouble the unity and coordination of efforts, as well as to strengthen actions from digital social networks.
