Belo Horizonte, June 15 (RHC-PL)-- About 200 delegates and guests are participating at the 23rd Brazilian Convention of Solidarity with Cuba in Belo Horizonte, which this time pays special tribute to Fidel Castro and Ernesto Che Guevara.
The fight against the economic, financial and commercial blockade the United States has maintained against Cuba for more than 50 years and the return of the territory illegally occupied by the Guantanamo naval base, are among the main issues of the agenda, Jose Antonio Vieira told Prensa Latina.
The director general of the Jose Marti Cultural Association in Minas Gerais stated that another of the objectives of the Convention will be to achieve a greater unity of the solidarity movement with Cuba in Brazil.
The program of the meeting includes the holding of keynote speeches on the U.S. blockade and the return of Guantanamo Bay; the results and benefits derived from the application of the More Doctors program; and the updating of the Cuban economic model and the progress in its implementation.
The presentation and approval of the Charter of Belo Horizonte and the election of the venue of the next meeting will end the debates of the meeting, culminating on June 17th with a political-cultural event denominated Internationalist Solidarity Day.
