Havana, Aug 7 (ACN) Cuban intellectuals, academics and activists stressed in Havana the need for a permanent mobilization against the growing imperial aggressiveness, accentuated by the current U.S. administration and its manifest incompatibility with human progress, stresses today the newspaper Granma.
Seventy years after the holding of the National Congress for Peace and Democracy, the intellectual colloquium commemorated the birth of the Cuban Movement for Peace and the Sovereignty of the Peoples, which took place in the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba, under the auspices of both organizations and the Nicolás Guillén Foundation.
On August 6, 1949, prominent cultural intellectuals occupied the front line in forging civic consciousness in favor of world peace and social justice, according to the newspaper.
Now, at the end of the second decade of the 21st century, it is imperative to gather all possible voices capable of stopping the arms race, the proliferation of devices of massive destruction and social and environmental degradation on a planetary scale, the newspaper Granma concludes.
