Spanish Trade Unionists Express Solidarity with Cuba

Spanish Trade Unionists Express Solidarity with Cuba Havana, May 14. – Members of the Cuba-Balearic Friendship House, who participated in the May Day celebrations in Havana, shared with Cubans and expressed support for the process in the country.

The world needs to know the truth about Cuba, on this heroic nation hangs a cloak of lies and misrepresentation in order to undermine the importance of its example, said Lorenzo Bravo, vice president of the solidarity group.

In an interview with the weekly Workers, the general secretary of the General Workers Union (UGT) in the Balearic Islands said that he came to Cuba because he was committed to the Revolution, turned into Mecca for all fighters for a different world.

In the midst of our battles, there is no better encouragement to follow but Fidel Castro's ideal and heroism and the reasons of Ernesto Che Guevara, said Bravo before announcing his visit to the memorial to the Argentine-Cuban guerrilla fighter in the city of Santa Clara, in the center of the country.

The trade unionists were accompanied by Gerardo Moya, president of the Friendship House, founded a year ago in Palma de Mallorca, and Bartholomew Sancho, honorary president of that institution and a regular contributor to the Cuban Revolution for many areas.

In only one year, we have encouraged solidarity by all means possible: we promoted the campaign for the release of five Cubans antiterrorists unjustly held in U.S. prisons, we spread the new realities of this country, its conquests, its resilience and example, affirmed Moya.

As the solidarity leader said, the Cuba-Baleares Friendship House provided for the presence of Aleida Guevara, Che's daughter, to give enlightening lectures about Cuba and its history.(Prensa Latina)
