As part of the agenda, the MEPs toured sites of historical, social and cultural interest in the Ciénaga de Zapata municipality, in the western province of Matanzas, including headquarters of the Korimakao Artistic Ensemble, where they will appreciate the cultural potential of the community project.

They also spoke with inhabitants of the swamp town of Soplillar, who evoked the precarious living conditions of the place before the revolutionary triumph, as well as the emotional dinner that Fidel Castro had in that place with the charcoal burners on December 24, 1959.

According to the website of the Cuban parliament, the visitors exchanged with Nemesia Rodríguez, who saw her mother die as a child in the mercenary invasion against Playa Girón, backed by the United States Government in April, 1961.

MEPs will develop other activities in this town and in the province of Mayabeque.

As part of the delegation, there are members of the European Parliament Martin Schirdewan, co-president of the La Izquierda Group, Manu Pineda, Sandra Pereira, Konstantinos Arvanitis, Giorgos Georgiou, Sira Rego, Elena Kountoura, Leila Chaibi and Maria Eugénia Rodriguez.
