Mexico Hosts 24th Solidarity Meeting with Cuba

Mexico, Mar 16 (Prensa Latina) The Mexican Movement of Solidarity with Cuba on Saturday began its two-day 24th National Meeting, which is taking place at the Workers University in Mexico City’s historic heart and is being attended by delegates from all over the country.

Antonio Guerrero, hero of the Republic of Cuba, is a special guest at the event. Guerrero was one of the five heroes who were unjustly held in US prisons for fighting terrorism and will be the keynote speaker at the opening ceremony, at which he will speak about his experience as a prisoner of the empire.

Dr. Paula Ortiz Guillan, a professor at the University of Havana, will also speak about the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, and later the delegates will meet in three working groups to discuss the organization of movement at the national level and its action plan.

The two other groups will address Cuba and the achievements of the Revolution over the past six decades and youth in solidarity with Cuba and Our Americas.

The documentary ‘Momentos con Fidel’ (Moments with Fidel) will be screened on Sunday, when a speech by the representative of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples, Idania Ramos, is expected, and the resolutions and final agreements of the meeting will be approved.

The national meeting of solidarity with Cuba has been held annually since 1995 at alternative venues within the country and Mexico City. Delegates from more than 20 states of the Republic are participating in the 24th edition.

This year’s event is dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution and to denounce the Donald Trump government’s decision to revive the interventionist and aggressive Monroe Doctrine, which is an instrument of aggression against the Latin American peoples and whose consequences the Cuban people have suffered.
