Ready to struggle for regional peace

Evento 1Focused on strengthening the Latin American left and developing cohesion among progressive forces, the Sao Paulo Forum (FSP) Working Group met in Havana, with the presence of Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez and Communist Party of Cuba Second Secretary José Ramón Machado Ventura

In the city’s Convention Center, representatives of left-wing parties and social movements discussed developing common actions for solidarity, continental peace and other causes in the Latin American and Caribbean region, where reality demands the resistance of progressive forces and the leadership of young people in the struggle, as the Cuban President pointed out.

It is also necessary, said Díaz-Canel, to articulate strategies that allow us to confront the cultural and media war with which neoliberalism and imperialism intend to subdue our peoples, trying to destroy our identities. The aggressive escalation that the continent is experiencing today is part of an ideological and cultural battle, he insisted.In the particular case of Cuba, Machado Ventura had previously stated in the meeting, “The more radical the aggression, the greater our commitment to solidarity with just causes. We will not change any of our principles.”Mónica Valente, executive secretary of the FSP, called for analysis of the international context of regional struggles and thanked the Cuban people, and all organizations involved, for the collection of thousands of signatures here calling for the release of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, unjustly imprisoned in Brazil.
