HAVANA, Cuba.- The opening of a new stage in the struggle for Latin American and Caribbean unity and integration will be the focus of the 12th Argentinean Meeting in Solidarity with Cuba.
The forum will be held August 18 and 19 at the General Paz Municipal Sports Center in the Argentinean city of Cordoba, said Alcira Vaca, member of the event’s organizing committee, as cited by PL news agency.
Given the historic moment we are living in Latin America, marked by the necessity for unity to face imperial actions, we proposed a deeper consideration of these issues, said Vaca, who is a member of the Argentinean Solidarity-with Cuba Movement, in Cordoba.
The activist recalled that along with the current five commissions set up in previous forums, a new commission will discuss the issue titled “Cuba and the anti-imperialist struggle; integration and the defense of peace.”
The commission will also call the 3rd International Conference for a World Balance, to be held next year, in Havana.
The 12th Argentinean Meeting of Solidarity will be attended by 250 delegates, said the activist, who also announced that major topics for discussion also include the struggle against the US economic blockade of Cuba and the demand for the release of the five anti-terrorist fighters held in the United States.
Other subjects on the agenda are the response by solidarity movements to the current media campaign against Cuba, and the role being played by the island in favor of an effective regional integration.
Participants will consider the results of the Cuban literacy program “Yes, I Can,” the free eye surgery program known as Miracle Operation, as well as the granting of scholarships by the Havana-based Latin American School of Medicine.
