Cuban delegate highlights importance of World Forum in Argentina

Buenos Aires, Mar 24 (Prensa Latina) The 3rd World Forum on Human Rights made it possible to analyze the negative impact of neoliberalism on the democratic processes in the region, and highlight the importance of revolutions like ours, Norma Goicochea, from Cuba, asserted in Argentina on Friday.

In statements to Prensa Latina, the president of the Cuban Association of the United Nations highlighted the relevance of the event that brought together more than 21,000 people from 98 countries in this capital to discuss the situation in Latin America and the world.

During the debates, the role of civil society as an element of change and its contribution to the formulation of policies to achieve true democracy became clear. In addition, threats to progressive and left-wing governments were denounced, she pointed out.

She explained that the manipulation and politicization of processes against social leaders in the region, orchestrated by big powers to prosecute and disqualify leaders such as Argentinean Vice President Cristina Fernandez and former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, were exposed and criticized.

Goicochea pointed out that the event was a propitious space to condemn the efforts to demonize countries of representative democracy such as Cuba and to recognize the efforts of the Caribbean nation in the defense of the economic, social and cultural rights of its citizens.

At the meetings with participants, we were able to verify the solidarity, affection, respect and admiration for our island. During a meeting, former Colombian President Ernesto Samper expressed his eternal gratitude to Cuba for the role played in the peace process in his nation, she said.

We were acknowledged for everything we do to preserve the rights of our people and those of the world. Our internationalism is an expression of Jose Marti’s concept that Homeland is Humanity, practiced by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro (1926-2016), she added.

In this regard, Goicochea highlighted Cuba’s contribution of doctors, ophthalmologists and teachers to several regions of the world.

The Forum was essential to identify the challenges that lie ahead in Latin America and the need to continue to build public policies. As Cubans, we must continue to demonstrate the commitment by our State and socialist civil society to the defense and protection of human rights, she affirmed.

I am proud of being Cuban and of everything we do for people, regardless of their race, gender, sexual preference and religious creed. In this, our nation has a lot to contribute, she concluded.
