In Denmark, as in the West in general, in the political environment and in the press, Cuba is accused of not being democratic and is attacked using the issue of human rights, but we know it, love it and admire it for its humanist values and ideas, he told Prensa Latina.
According to the solidarity activist, the association works to confront lies and slander, a priority during the visit of Doctor Nilda Corria and Nurse Maribel Chacon, members of the Henry Reeve medical brigades that helped other nations to fight Covid-19, to this and other cities in the country.
This is one of the ways to spread Cuba’s reality firsthand, Simonsen stressed.
The Danish-Cuban Friendship Association is also very active in denouncing and condemning the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba for more than six decades.
Cuban Ambassador to Denmark Roger Lopez highlighted the organization’s initiative to make known Cuba’s solidarity and its successes in sectors such as health, in Denmark.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, medical brigades from our country reached many other cities, in addition to creation of our own vaccines and the immunization of 90 percent of the Cuban population, feats that have been achieved despite the cruel blockade, he said.
