World caravan demands end of US blockade against Cuba
We will demand an end to the blockade, especially in this situation the world is going through, where the island has taken the lead in terms of solidarity internationalism, taking its solidarity to different peoples through the Henry Reeve Medical Brigade, he said. Aznarez pointed out that it is very important to raise awareness among Argentines and also to recognize the work of the Brigade as a fundamental candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize 2021, for everything it has done in a generous way.
The Argentine people have always shown a high degree of solidarity with Cuba and its Revolution. In spite of the difficult circumstances due to the pandemic, it is necessary to defend the island and fight for the end of the blockade, he said.
He also called for imperialism to stop criminalizing and waging war against the world and to try to maintain a health system that does not condemn its population to death.
On Sunday we will be at the Centennial Park to tell Cuba that we are here, we continue to demand the lifting of the blockade and the Nobel Prize for its doctors, he emphasized.
