Meeting of Cubans residing in Europe considered 'successful'
Berlin, Oct 25 (Prensa Latina) The first virtual meeting of Cubans residing in Europe took place on Saturday with a notable participation, fruitful exchanges of criteria and the condemnation of the US blockade among its results, Jose Conde, one of the organizers, said.
The president of the Association of Cuban Residents in Germany gave statements to Prensa Latina specifying that the expectations of the forum in which the participants ratified their support for the Cuban Revolution in the face of the attacks and supported the request to grant the Nobel Peace Prize 2021 to Cuba's Henry Reeve medical brigade, were exceeded.
The initial idea was not to miss the opportunity to meet, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, which prevents traditional physical encounters, but the project grew and grew until it aroused a lot of interest among compatriots here in Europe, Conde explained.
According to Conde, the Zoom platform welcomed all possible participants without affecting the connection, while around 200 people accessed the event on YouTube.
'We have the presence of Cubans residing in countries of the European Union, but also in the United Kingdom and Turkey, and even in Kazakhstan (Central Asia), for a representation from at least 26 nations,' he stressed.
'We are very satisfied with what happened,' he stated regarding the virtual forum, which adopted a final declaration to condemn the blockade imposed on Cuba by the United States for 60 years and its upsurge during the government of President Donald Trump.
