Cuban President receives expressions of solidarity in South Africa

Pretoria, Aug 23 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Wednesday received expressions of solidarity from all three member forces of the South African Government Alliance and members of Cuba solidarity movement.

The event was held at the Freedom Park, where the memory of the more than 2,000 Cubans killed in African lands for freedom is honored, as well as the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.

There, representatives of the African National Congress (ANC), the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), the South African Communist Party (SACP), and the Cuba Friendship Society (Focus), among other groups, condemned the United States blockade against Cuba, as well as the Caribbean island’s inclusion in Washington’s State Sponsors of Terrorism list.

At Freedom Park, Díaz-Canel laid a wreath in front of the wall that venerates more than 2,000 Cuban fighters who gave their lives for the liberation of Africa.

Previously, the head of State laid a wreath at the statue that immortalizes Nelson Mandela, as a “heartfelt tribute on behalf of the Cuban people and Government to the friend and exceptional leader who fought against apartheid, defeated hatred and promoted union and peace.”

In his words before nearly 1,000 people gathered at the solidarity event, Díaz-Canel stressed that “in the name of those fallen for the freedom and sovereignty of Africa, South Africa and Cuba, for peace and harmony among nations and human beings, let us fight for friendship to become indestructible and for the future generations of South Africans and Cubans to be proud of the ties we bequeathed to them.”
