In his official Twitter account, the head of government pointed out that the members of the FEU, faithful to the legacy of communist leader Julio Antonio Mella (1903-1929) and to the “history that is engraved in its ranks, are committed to the conquests of the Revolution.”
Mella founded the FEU on December 20, 1922, to represent the interests and enforce the rights of Cuban university students.
Any person pursuing higher education in Cuba, without distinction of sex, race, religious belief, nationality or social origin, who voluntarily wishes to belong to the organization and does not have the status of worker, may join it.
It is also made up of active student leaders up to two years after graduation.
On the occasion of the anniversary, on this day there will be a central event on the steps of the Havana University, where a campaign for the centenary of the FEU will be launched with three main axes: political-ideological, cultural and sports work.
