France’s CubaCoop salutes anniversary of Cuban mass organization

Paris, Sep 28 (Prensa Latina) The Cuba Coopération France (CubaCoop) association on Thursday celebrated the 63rd anniversary the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR), Cuba's largest mass organization, with nearly eight million members.

In its weekly publication, La lettre électronique Hebdo recalled the creation of the CDR on September 28, 1960, less than two years after the triumph of the Revolution, as a need to mobilize Cubans to defend the country from the escalation of US aggression.

CubaCoop First Vice President Miguel Quintero pointed out that plans were already underway for the invasion of Playa Girón (Bay of Pigs), the terror actions by armed groups funded from US soil in the Escambray Mountains and Washington’s plans to starve an entire country.

Therefore, on September 28, 1960, the CDRs were created during a speech by Fidel Castro before one million people, CubaCoop underlined in the article, which provides French readers with an approach to the mass organization.

According to the publication, the current challenge of the so-called “cederistas” (CDR members) is different: subversion and lies spread on social networks, trying to take advantage of the damage caused by Washington’s economic, commercial and financial blockade.
