Nigeria to host African solidarity with Cuba meeting


THE 6th African Continental Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba will be held in Nigeria from September 23 to 25, 2019.

According to a statement, the Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba, a continuity of its five previous editions, will confirm the international support for the validity of the model of social justice that Cuba symbolises and its viability as an alternative for that “other better and possible world” for which the peoples of the world struggle.

“In the midst of constant aggression, media disinformation and global crisis, this will be a date that will facilitate a space for the construction of initiatives, proposals and exchanges of strategies in favour of solidarity with Cuba,” states interim coordinator Abiodun Aremu.

“At the time of making the call for our VI Regional Meeting, the people of Cuba continue to receive the impact of 60 years of economic and inhuman blockade, which we will continue to resist and overcome. Our people will remain united, building and improving our socialism, and contributing with their modest experiences to the processes of integration.”

He further said accompanied by the anti-imperialist, visionary and humanistic thinking of national hero Jose Martí and Fidel Castro, Cuba ratified its internationalist and solidarity vocation with Venezuela, Palestine, the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, in support of the freedom of former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and “all the noble causes that benefit the peoples and guarantee the enjoyment of their most elemental rights: freedom, peace and social justice”.

Delegates are expected to arrive in Abuja from September 21, stated Aremu.
