The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) convened on February 3 the campaign "60 years embracing friendship", to fulfill in this 2020 its six decades founded by Commander in Chief Fidel Castro.
We Cubans feel proud of having an institution like ICAP, which has defended so many just causes of other friends in the world in these 60 years, an institution that has been heiress and protagonist of the international solidarity with Cuba.
In the traditional Bonfire of Friendship, in the international camp Julio Antonio Mella, in Caimito, Fernando González Llort, president of the ICAP, launched the campaign on Friday saying that this anniversary is a special motivation to consolidate the work of solidarity with Cuba throughout the planet, and constitutes the necessary impulse that contributes to breaking the economic fence against our country. He invited all the friends of Cuba in the world to be part of this celebration, sharing our dreams and hopes.
The priorities for 2020 will be participating actively in the media battle in defense of the Revolution against the lies and subversive aggressions of the US government and its followers; working for the rejuvenation of the solidarity movement with our country, and continue implementing the “Hands off Cuba” Campaign with non-traditional and media impact actions that summon organizations and associations, social and popular movements, parties, intellectuals and parliamentarians.
In the same way, (ICAP) will continue promoting regional, continental and national solidarity events with Cuba, as places for the coordination of experiences and initiatives in support of the undefeated Cuban Revolution and the struggle causes of the peoples, for their independence and self-determination.
