Belfast, January 2019. As part of the program of activities developed in Belfast by the Cuban ambassadors to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Teresita Vicente Sotolongo, and before Ireland, Hugo René Ramos Milanes, they had a fraternal and emotional meeting with trade unionists and activists of the solidarity movement.
During the lively exchange on various current issues was confirmed the example of political maturity and democratic exercise demonstrated by the Cuban people during the broad debate of the draft new constitution that will endow the Revolution, when the next February 24 is voted in referendum.
The participants left evidence of the wide-ranging discussion on the most varied topics of the Constitution project, which brought together the participation of close to 9 million Cubans including those residing outside the island and the more than 1.7 million proposals that enriched the text.
The issue of special concern was the intensification of the economic blockade against the Cuban people, based on the additional measures imposed by the Donald Trump government, as well as the serious consequences on the Cuban economy and the normal development of foreign trade and cooperation.
The commitment of renewed solidarity was present, not only towards the Cuban people, but also in favor of the progressive processes of Latin America and the Caribbean, especially with the Bolivarian and Sandinista revolutions.
