Bolivia in solidarity with Cuba
LA PAZ.— The Solidarity with Cuba Movement in Bolivia has convened an international conference for this coming October in Vallegrande, PL reports.
The aim of the conference is to create a space for strengthening internationalist solidarity in the context of current processes underway in Latin America and to reaffirm commitment to the Cuban Revolution.
The Conference organizers state that the encounter is scheduled for October 7 in Vallegrande (Santa Cruz department), "the final battle trench of Ernesto Che Guevara, the heroic guerrilla."
The meeting seeks to coordinate concrete international actions to end the blockade of Cuba and fight for the liberation of the Five.
At the same time, participants will discuss the international spirit of Comandante Ernesto Che Guevara, his thinking and today’s revolutionary processes in Latin America.
"In Che’s example we will try to weave the links of sisterhood and the internationalist solidarity of our America," reads the call, which will also create a broad communication network to take coordinated action at the continental level.
The encounter welcomes all members of sister peoples’ solidarity movements and internationalists, who should register before September 15.
The call to the encounter states, "For more than 50 years, Cuba has been a bastion of resistance and dignity. This example of struggle and dignity has formed generations of young Latin Americans in the spirit of internationalist solidarity."
