“Thank you so much for allowing me to share this piece of Sunday with you,” the Cuban president told representatives of the Cuban civil society, who have been holding concerts, poetry readings, speeches, screening of documentaries and book presentations since Nov. 12 to date.
The head of state stressed that Cuba strongly condemns US campaigns to subvert the country´s internal order, as well as the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States. “Cuba will live in peace, and living in peace we are going to improve ourselves,” he confirmed.
Díaz-Canel joined the initiative called ¨Sit-in of Red Handkerchiefs¨, opposing the Unconventional Wars on Cuba.
Chants like ´The country is not alone´ and ´Put some heart on Cuba´ were shouted aloud during the act led by the Cuban president, who also was able to enjoy and listen to songs by troubadour Tony Ávila.
The anti-imperialist sit-in was attended by students, workers, housewives and LGBTIQ+ community who in a statement also made known their stance in support of the emancipatory struggles and its members´ commitment to a perfectible socialism.
