During their stay in this city, the capital of the department of Atlantico, the visitors participated in a banquet organized by Casa Caribe de Solidaridad con los Pueblos, which is part of the Colombian Movement of Solidarity with Cuba (MCSC), where they discussed the preparations for the 31st Meeting of the MCSC, to be held from November 9 to 13 to demand an end to the United States blockade against Cuba.
The event, held under the slogan ¡For the lifting of the blockade, unity and brotherhood with Cuba!, will take place in Barranquilla, where leaders and supporters of corporations that make up the MCSC, and national and foreign guests, will promote knowledge and brotherhood between both cities.
