El Cuate advocates for Nobel Peace Prize to Cuban doctors
Mexico, Jul 27 (Prensa Latina) Antonio del Conde, El Cuate, who got the yacht Granma for Cuban expeditionaries led by Fidel Castro, advocated on Sunday for the Nobel Peace Prize to the Henry Reeve medical contingent.
In a continental teleconference held as part of the July 26 celebration, in which intellectuals from the region participated, the legendary Cuate and his fellow countryman Andres Fabrega Puig, ethnologist and historian, spoke on behalf of Mexico.
Both made their country's voice heard condemning the U.S. economic, commercial and financial blockade against the Caribbean island, and the support of the people of Juarez and Zapata to the Cuban medical brigade.
Precisely 585 physicians, nurses and technicians have just finished their work in Mexico City to support the hard battle against the Covid-19 pandemic in this country.
Academician Fabrega presented a summary of the historical assault on the Moncada Barracks on this date, but in 1953, as well as the presence in Mexico of Cuban patriots, such as the poet Jose Maria Heredia, and the Cuban National Hero, Jose Marti.
Both told about the presence in Mexico of Fidel Castro, Raul Castro and Ernesto Guevara, in the military preparation and the expedition of the Granma and referred precisely to the fact that Che did it as a doctor of the expeditionaries.
Previously, the Mexican Movement of Solidarity with Cuba held a forum on the 67th anniversary of the assault on Moncada in which it also focused its homage on the Henry Reeve and joined the international clamour for the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize.
