Congress of youth concludes in Cuba 

Havana, Apr 4 (Prensa Latina) The 12th Congress of the Cuban Young Communist League (UJC, in Spanish) concludes on Thursday after three days of intense debates to improve the organization’s work and its support to the new generations.

On Wednesday, the delegates approved changes to the UJC’s statutes to revitalize the organization’s life, consolidate it as a true vanguard, expand its reach and influence, and improve its political-ideological work.

Those changes resulted in a broad grassroots debate in which 21 of 5,106 proposals were modified.

The delegates and guests to the forum also analyzed in commissions the organic functioning of the UJC, political-ideological work, the participation of the new generations in the economic struggle, the defense of the homeland, and the attention to the youth in the social sphere.

The 12th Congress of the UJC, in addition to being a space for reflection, became a platform this Wednesday to denounce the effects of the US blockade and Cuba’s inclusion in the unilateral list of countries that sponsor terrorism.

Representatives of different Cuban sectors explained how the unilateral siege limits the possibilities of growth in their field, despite this nation’s efforts to overcome those obstacles.

The UJC, which celebrates its 62nd anniversary this Thursday, is the vanguard political organization of Cuban youth, the continuation of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), and the leading source for joining its ranks.
