Cuban Young Communist League Prepares for Congress

Havana, January 15 (RHC-PL) -– The issues that have been discussed to be included in the agenda for the 10th Congress of the Young Communist League in Cuba (UJC) are as rich as the country's thinking, stated First Secretary of the UJC, Yuniaski Crespo.

In a meeting with journalists, the young leader said that the process of discussions prior to the Congress has been inclusive, covering employment, recreational options and juvenile crime.

More than 26,000 youngsters have attended assemblies countrywide to agree on topics to be discussed in the Congress, scheduled for July 18th and 19th. The organization has 400,000 members.

"It has to be a Congress in line with the transformations, scarcity and needs the Cubans are going through," said Crespo after informing that young people that are not members of the UJC have also been invited to the assemblies to take note of their views and proposals, too.

Meanwhile, a member of the National Bureau of the UJC, Sucelys Morfa, said this Congress will be dedicated to historical leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro.

The slogan of the Congress will be Fidel Castro's words "the reasons to fight and win multiply every day," noted Morfa. At least 500 delegates and 80 guests are expected to attend our Congress, said Joan Palmero, a member of the National Bureau of the UJC.
