Cuba’s Largest Mass Organization Backs Revolution

Cuba's Largest Mass Organization Backs RevolutionHavana, Mar 15. -The Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR), the largest mass organization in Cuba, reaffirmed its support for the Revolution and the updating of the national economic model.

In statements to Prensa Latina, CDR national coordinator Carlos Rafael Miranda stated a top priority of that organization is to counter any destabilizing activities that endanger the revolutionary process that began on January 1, 1959.

Miranda also referred to the restructuring of the labor market, stating that the CDR has the responsibility of transmitting confidence that the Revolution has not lost and will never lose its essence, which is why no Cuban will be left abandoned to their fate.

The CDRs contributed to organizing neighborhood debates on the Economic and Social Policy Guidelines of the Draft Party Program, and all CDR members had the possibility to give their opinions about this issue, Miranda stated.

He talked about the struggle against social indiscipline, another top priority of organization. The CDRs were founded on September 28, 1960 as a grassroots security system in response to frequent terrorist attacks to destroy the Revolution, but they also carry out many activities for collective social benefit.

The second national CDR exercise against social indiscipline will be held on March 23-27, to boost people's participation in preventing those types of activities in their neighborhoods. (Prensa Latina)
