Maduro recalls anniversary of Latin American student organization
Caracas, Aug 11 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro recalled on Tuesday the Latin American and Caribbean Continental Organization of Students (OCLAE) on the 54th anniversary of its foundation.
On Twitter, the president exhorted the Latin American student community to continue in a 'permanent battle, resisting and waving high the flags' of the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro (1926-2016).
'We celebrate 54 years of OCLAE's struggle and firmness. My embrace to that heroic youth that remains united, defending the right to have a free and quality education system, at the service of the people,' the head of State tweeted. This organization emerged on August 11, 1966 by agreement of the 4th Latin American Student Congress, held in Havana, Cuba, as a mobilizing and coordinating body of the anti-imperialist fights of the student movement in Latin America and the Caribbean.
OCLAE played a significant role in promoting actions for the reform and democratization of education, the eradication of illiteracy, the development of the strongest unity and the bonds of solidarity among the students of the continent, for the conquest and defense of their legitimate rights and claims.
