Cuba encourages Manu Pineda to continue to fight for just causes

Havana, Jun 10 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Diaz-Canel and other Cuban leaders have encouraged Spanish politician Manu Pineda to continue his fight for the people's just causes in any scenario, official sources published on Monday.

Diaz-Canel and Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez reacted on their X profile to Pineda’s confirmation that the results of his candidacy in the European Parliament’s elections, which ended on Sunday, were unfavorable.

Diaz-Canel asserted that Manu Pineda “is one of those indispensable men about whom (playwright and poet) Bertolt Brecht (Germany, 1898-1956) spoke, those who fight all their lives, wherever they are. In response, the former MEP thanked the Cuban president for his encouraging words and assured, “We will continue to fight for the same objectives and with the same principles that we have always fought for, from whatever trenches where we find ourselves in.”

The Cuban foreign minister, in turn, thanked the European activist “for his constant commitment to the defense and promotion of the just causes of the peoples of the world, and especially for his solidarity with our country in its tireless struggle against the blockade by the Government of the United States.”

In a message published before on the same social media, Manu Pineda described as “bad and without palliatives” the electoral results, in which the candidate from the political group Sumar, to which he belongs, did not win enough support to be elected MEP.
