Medellin, Nov 10 (RHC) Constant samples of fraternity and gratitude, support and solidarity qualified the XXVIII National Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba, held in this Colombian city.
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.
Our support for the government led by President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who represents the new generations of Cuban revolutionaries, determined and prepared to continue 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.
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 the eastern Cuban province of Guantanamo and the return of this illegally occupied territory.
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, remarked in the text.
They also condemned the coup and destabilizing plans carried out against the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Bolivia; and congratulated the Brazilian people and everyone in the world for the victory achieved with the release of teammate Luis Inacio Lula da Silva.
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.
After three days of an intense program of activities, the event ended the day before with the presence of the Cuban ambassador to Colombia, Jose Luis Ponce, who led the island's delegation to the event.
It was also integrated by Omar Rafael Garcia, first secretary of the Embassy; Yara Valera, of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples; Yusuam Palacios, deputy to the National Assembly of Popular Power; and Rene Mesa, from the Department of International Relations of the Central Committee of the Communist Party.
