San Salvador, September 6.— Salvadorian Vice-president Salvador Sánchez committed himself to work for the release of the Cuban Five —the antiterrorist fighters unfairly imprisoned in US jails— during his key address at the closing ceremony of the 3rd National Congress of Solidarity with Cuba.
Sánchez also called on Salvadorians to join the struggle for peace and stop the nuclear war in the middle east.
Sánchez underscored that the Cuban Five (as they are internationally known) represent an example not only for the Cuban people, but also for the rest of the world, especially the Salvadorian youth.
The Salvadorian vice president also called on his people to join the struggle for peace and stop the nuclear war in the Middle East, a mission summoned by the leader of the Cuban revolution Fidel Castro.
Sánchez noted that Salvadorians should understand their home country as a reflection of humankind, just like Cuba’s National Hero Jose Marti taught Cubans, and they should be committed to defending it.
In addition, he denounced the economic, commercial and financial blockade the United Sates has imposed on Cuba for over 50 years, and called on the Salvadorian people to take the streets and spread the truth about Cuba. (Cubadebate/ antiterroristas. cu)
Extension of US Blockade of Cuba Protested in France
Associations of solidarity with Cuba issued two communiqués condemning the White House decision to prolong the blockade they have imposed over the Caribbean island for over half a century, Prensa Latina news agency reported.
CubaSí, France Provence, and Cuba Moncada, underscored that Cuba has never been a real menace to the US national security. On the contrary, Cuba has suffered terrorist attacks and actions aimed at destroying its economy on various occasions.
