José Antonio Toledo, coordinator of the platform activated on October 2020, in an interview with Prensa Latina, said: “We expect the presence of around 80 delegates from some 17 countries in Europe and America at the forum scheduled for January 27th to 29th, although these numbers may still vary because we continue to receive requests,”
The list of participants includes parliamentarians, solidarity activists, trade unionists, cultural personalities, jurists, intellectuals and journalists, with topics on the debate agenda such as the blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba for over six decades.
According to Toledo, the first international meeting convened by the channel will address the attacks against Cuba, particularly the blockade, its extraterritorial nature and the actions to denounce and fight against it.
“We will take advantage of this meeting to launch new solidarity initiatives with Cuba,” he said.
Since its creation, “Europe for Cuba channel” has combined its Sunday broadcasts and its actions on social networks with activities ranging from a media marathon to denounce the blockade to caravans and mobilizations in various continents in rejection of the policy promoted by the US.
Toledo emphasized that: “for Europeans and Latin Americans in solidarity with Cuba and Cubans living in the old continent, the Seville forum will be an appropriate space for the exchange of criteria and ideas”.
