In statements to Prensa Latina, Cuba Linda President Didier Lalande said that it is a group of nearly 100 people, the first of many who will visit the Caribbean island this year, with a program called Following the Revolution’s Footsteps.
We consider this proposal an opportunity to get to know Cuba and its people, who are resisting aggression by the United States, as well as its natural beauty and the warmth of its people at various events in cities and neighborhoods, he said.
Among the events, Lalande highlighted the group’s presence in the traditional May Day parade, a true popular celebration and a demonstration of revolutionary reaffirmation in Cuba, which has been affected for more than 60 years by the Washington-imposed economic, commercial and financial blockade.
The participation of French people in solidarity with Cuba in this celebration was usual before the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. In recent years, Cuba Linda has taken actions in support of the Caribbean island with notable repercussions, including the worldwide campaign in favor of granting the Nobel Peace Prize to the Henry Reeve medical brigades and the collection of tens of thousands of euros to send syringes and needles for immunization against Covid-19 in Cuba.
