Valdivia will host a solidarity meeting with Cuba in Chile

Santiago de Chile, Apr 27 (Prensa Latina) The city of Valdivia, in southern Chile, will host the XXVII National Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba, to which delegates from all over the country are summoned, its organizers informed today.

Marisol Molina, of the José Martí group in the Los Ríos region, told Prensa Latina that the event will take place on November 22 and 23 and will be an opportunity to strengthen the historic ties of brotherhood between the two peoples.

She recalled that the first medical brigade sent by the nascent Cuban Revolution was the one that arrived precisely in Valdivia in 1960 to support the victims of the biggest earthquake in the history of this country, which measured 9.5 degrees on the Richter scale and left some two thousand deaths.

Not only do we have to give thanks for that, but also for the help provided by Cuba to many Chileans during the 1973 coup d’état against the Popular Unity government, she said. For Molina, the meeting will strengthen the Solidarity Movement in southern Chile. It will also be an opportunity for visitors to enjoy the culture and beautiful landscapes of a region with many rivers, explained Angelica Smith, a great friend of Cuba.

Marisol Molina informed that they are currently immersed in the whole organization of the event, as agreed in the 26th edition, held in 2022 in the city of La Serena.
