Havana, July 10 .- Members of the 48th edition of the European Brigade José Martí of Solidarity with Cuba expressed today their support to this nation, where they will take part in productive works, conferences and meetings with the people.
According to Maria Concepción Pereira, member of the International Brigade of Portugal that has integrated 14 times these groups of solidarity, to come to the Island is very profitable both in the personal plane and in the group.
Pereira, militant of the Portuguese Communist Party, told to Latin Press that in her country one does not know very much on Cuba due to the mastery of the right over the mass media.
They speak things that are not real, turn round others and present them of prevaricated form, said the visitor, who insisted that the solidarity brigades help to spread in the world the Cuban reality.
We here integrate and see the force of the people, the goals and targets for which it fights. We see the unit, without which the Cuban Revolution had not resisted so many years, and that makes us feel pride, she mentioned.
For her part, Maria Luisa Ramos, Bolivian integrated to the European brigade, pointed out that the possibility of sharing in Cuba with persons of several countries is very important to spread the truth on the Caribbean nation, that of Latin America and to coordinate initiatives on a global scale.
It is excellent because not only it is a question of the solidarity with Cuba, but with us to re-stimulate our ideas and, the same way, to have necessary self-criticism doses, she added.
“It is necessary to keep on supporting Cuba, which has been the light in the way of numerous persons. It is a people that has contributed us very much and to which very much we owe him”, it pointed.
“We have to keep on denouncing the blockade - terrible and horrible - to that the United States has submitted the island for having different ideas and fighting for the freedom”, he added.
The present edition of the brigade is provided with more than 90 members proceeding from Germany, Czech Republic, Spain, France, Russia, Switzerland, Greece, Italy, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Belgium.
Also, citizens of other countries - included several Latin Americans - integrated to the delegations earlier said.
