Havana, Jan 25 (Prensa Latina) The international solidarity movement with Cuba is constantly growing and is now made up of more than 2,000 organizations from 154 countries, stated the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP).
During an activity with the 25th South American Brigade of Volunteer Work and Solidarity with Cuba in the Julio Antonio Mella International Camp (in the western province of Artemisa), the first vice president of ICAP, Elio Gámez, told Prensa Latina about the pride of the island for having so much support.
It is always exciting to receive friends, especially from our Latin American region, he expressed about the presence of the brigade in the camp, a center founded in January 1972 at the initiative of the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.
Gámez pointed out that the international solidarity movement is very active in denouncing the economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba for more than 55 years, as well as on the island’s claims for the return of the territory illegally occupied by the northern nation in Guantánamo (province of the southeast).
In addition, he added, it divulges the Cuban reality and faces the campaigns of distortion and misinformation about Cuba executed by mass media.
