Cuba condemns blockades and conflicts impact culture

Cuba condemns blockades and conflicts impact culture

Mexico City, Sep 29 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Culture Minister Alpidio Alonso on Thursday condemned at UNESCO's Mundiacult Congress in Mexico that conflicts and blockades such as those imposed by the United States really affect the culture.

In his speech on cultural policies, the Cuban minister warned that social and regional inequalities have increased, and conflicts, including military ones, have tightened.

He also added discourses manipulate and erase history and collective memory of the peoples, and create an inferiority complex ahead of the presumed superiority of the hegemonic metropolises.

Alonso urged to assess local, regional and national essences on homeland, people and nation concepts, and to defend a decolonized modernity against culture predators.

The pandemic has revealed our vulnerabilities and major challenges we must be facing from now on in public policies, including the cultural war through which an attempt is being made to break the unity of movement around the state-run cultural institutions.

Blockade and economic war tremendously impacts on Cuban culture, making more difficult and complex the work of preserving the cultural heritage, especially the historical one.

Cuba urges for creating a sustainable development and also reaffirms its commitment to multilateralism and international peace.
