A group of Puerto Rican revolutionaries expressed in Havana that the Cuban people will resist and win in the face of the energy crisis in the country caused by the US imperial escalation.
Led by the patriot Oscar Lopez Rivera, the Puerto Rican representation reaffirmed its solidarity with Cuba by participating in a press meeting that opened the traditional Day of Solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico, which will last until September 23.
Jose Escoda, from the Socialist Front (FS), and Adrian Gonzalez and Adriana Gutierrez, from the Puerto Rican Independence Party and also from the group "Las Lolitas", expressed their rejection to the blockade against Cuba, as well as the commitment to fight for the independence of the Puerto Rican homeland.
Oscar Lopez Rivera, who spent more than 35 years as a political prisoner in U.S. prisons, reiterated his deepest gratitude to Cuba, the best example of resistance, struggle, dignity and solidarity.
The American empire believes it can control and dominate the people of the region, we have to demonstrate the US that it cannot control us, he said.
The exchange with the press took place at the headquarters of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), whose president, Fernando Gonzalez Llort, referred to the historical relations between Cuba and Puerto Rico, emphasizing the solidarity and internationalist spirit of the Revolution.
