We will continue to support Cuba, Argentine activists say

Buenos Aires, Feb 25 (Prensa Latina) The leader of Argentina’s MasCuba Solidarity Movement, Alberto Mas, assured on Sunday that they will continue to support that irreverent and blessed nation, because it is the first trench against imperialism nowadays.

After receiving the Friendship Medal, awarded by Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, at the proposal of the Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), Mas reaffirmed his commitment to Cuba, and highlighted its example.

“It is a great honor to receive such an acknowledgement that belongs to all of us who work in MasCuba, demonstrating that collective effort always pays off, the leader noted.

“Supporting Cuba is to show the Argentinian people that unity and the construction of a popular front that allows us to confront the Nazi-liberalism that threatens the continent is necessary,” he added.

Mas said that despite the current situation in his country, they will continue to defend Cuba, because it is the proof “that a better world is possible.”

“Long live Cuba! For us, Homeland or Death is not a slogan, but a reality,” he affirmed.

Cuban ad interim Chargé d’Affaires Dagmara Calzada pointed out that Mas made innumerable contributions to solidarity over the years as part of the Argentinian Club of Journalists Friends of Cuba and the movement.

His contribution was decisive in the struggle for the return of the Cuban Five Heroes (Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez), she underscored.

Mas is an example of unfailing loyalty to Cuba. With this tribute we show our gratitude to MasCuba and to all the comrades who defend our country. Thanks to you the Revolution is unbeatable and will continue to move forward, she granted.

Members of the Union of Cuban Residents in Argentina participated in the event, at which participants recalled the restart of the independence struggles, led by Jose Marti (1853-1895) on February 24, 1895.
