Tegucigalpa, August 14 (RHC)-- With a call to maintain the struggle against the blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba, the III Central American Meeting of Solidarity with the island concluded this Sunday in Guatemala.

Through a final declaration, the more than 100 delegates to the event expressed their willingness to support the Caribbean nation in the fight against the economic, commercial and financial siege that has lasted more than six decades.

They demanded the exclusion of Cuba from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, a strategy which, together with the blockade, aims to asphyxiate the economy and development of Cuban society in violation of international law.

The representatives of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the host country demanded the return of the territory illegally occupied by the U.S. military base in Guantanamo, against the will of the Cuban people and government.

Likewise, they revalidated the commitment to promote the unity and integration of solidarity movements and rejected everything that divides in order to contribute to the construction of the Patria Grande and consolidate an anti-imperialist front in the region.

They stressed the importance of the struggle in defense of Latin America and the Caribbean as a zone of peace, while advocating the strengthening and rejuvenation of the Central American movement of Solidarity with Cuba.

Those attending the three-day forum also proposed to articulate actions with other sectors that defend the Cuban Revolution in order to strengthen and broaden the bases of the aforementioned movement.

They agreed to intensify the denunciation and counteract the discredit that the enemies of Cuba develop in digital spaces through disinformation campaigns and political subversion.

In addition, they agreed to join the campaign "Cuba Vive y Resiste" (Cuba Lives and Resists), whose purpose is to collect one million signatures demanding the exclusion of Cuba from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, which will be delivered to U.S. President Joe Biden on December 10.

They also decided to hold a day of solidarity to denounce Washington's unilateral measure, prior to the vote on the resolution that Havana will present to the United Nations General Assembly in November.

The solidarity meeting concluded in the Cuba Square of the Honduran capital with the III Latin American and Caribbean Youth Festival in homage to the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, on the 97th anniversary of his birth.
