Due to the spread of Covid-19, on December 31, they will not meet as usual to celebrate the new year and the date of January 1, 1959, which marked the popular victory over the tyranny of Fulgencio Batista on the island.

Also via e-mail, the Antillean Export Corporation (ANTEX) business group in Angola praised the heroism of the Cuban people, facing “intense challenges due to the continuous threats and restrictions imposed by the current US administration.”
For more than 60 years, the US government has been applying an economic, financial and commercial blockade against Cuba, “dreaming of breaking our heroic people, whose worthy sons and daughters we are proud of, all trained in the struggle of countless battles,” ANTEX members said.
Following Fidel Castro’s legacy, the collaborators will continue to fulfill here the honorable mission of rendering quality services to the Angolan people for their welfare, the statement said.
