In its weekly issue La lettre electronique Hebdo, the association founded in 1995 to strengthen bilateral collaboration recalled that June 1 marked International Children’s Day, and children are a priority sector in Cuba, especially after the triumph of the Revolution on January 1, 1959.
The association, enrolled in dozens of cooperation projects in the Caribbean nation, highlighted the protection, care and education children receive, in a scenario marked by the siege that successive US administrations have implemented and tightened for more than six decades.
The inhuman and still in force Washington blockade hits the Cuban family and the satisfaction of their children’s needs, denounces the publication, through which CubaCoop updates French readers about the island’s reality.
In this sense, CubaCoop guaranteed its participation on June 12 in a rally convened in Paris, in front of the Eiffel Tower, to condemn the blockade and demand its immediate and unconditional lifting.
In Paris, the rally will be part of the call from the Europe for Cuba channel to hold a day to support the Caribbean country from June 6 to 13, ahead of a new vote at United Nations General Assembly on June 23, on a draft resolution calling for the end of the US siege, a text similar to the one approved by that forum 28 times since 1992.
