Paris, Feb 28 (Prensa Latina) The ‘Europe for Cuba’ channel continues strengthening as a platform that gives a voice to the movement of solidarity with the Caribbean island in Europe, Michele Mesagna, one of its moderators, said on Sunday.
The initiative, launched in October 2020, is holding today its 20th program in Spanish language and will expand its broadcasts as of March 3 to the Russian language, a window that opens every Sunday to promote activities in Europe in defense of Cuba, its people and the Revolution, and offers an approach to the reality of the Caribbean country.
We started from scratch, aware of the importance of creating platforms that allow that broad and diverse solidarity is disseminated on social media, which maintains the fight against the economic blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba as a priority, Mesagna said in an interview with Prensa Latina.
According to the Italian activist, one of the main objectives of the channel is to announce what is done for a just cause from several European countries through their associations, regardless of whether they are large or small, old or new in the work to support Cuba.
Cuba is the protagonist, we are all just soldiers, with no other ambition than to defend it and tell the truth that the media do not tell about it, he told Prensa Latina.
During its first 19 broadcasts on YouTube, the channel addressed the fight against the US blockade and the rejection of former President Donald Trump’s measures to tighten it.
The activist mentioned among Washington’s punitive actions Cuba’s inclusion in the unilateral list of countries that sponsor terrorism, and in contrast, the support for the request to recognize the work done by the Henry Reeve Medical Contingent with the Nobel Peace Prize.
The channel also paid tribute to significant dates to the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, and pro-independence hero Jose Marti.
It was also a platform to denounce attacks on Cuba by subversive forces, and it expressed a position of solidarity established by organizations from Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Russia and Serbia, among other countries.
