AGUADA de Pasajeros, Cienfuegos.—With the experiences of the 10th Congress of the National Association of Small Farmers (ANAP) still fresh, the Day of the Cuban Campesino was celebrated here with the movement’s ratification that its primary patriotic duty is to produce for the homeland.

At the ANAP Congress, Raúl Castro presented the 50th Anniversary of the Triumph of the Revolution Banner to the Cienfuegos delegation.

At this central May 17 event, ANAP President Orlando Lugo Fonte highlighted the importance of the recently concluded congress and the reflections and proposals of President Raúl Castro.

Lugo Fonte commented on the profundity of the debates and awareness of the role corresponding to the sector in relation to the country’s economic activity. He emphasized the implementation of agreements, starting from now, so that every single man and woman in the countryside and their family members know the tasks assigned to them.

This is the seventh time that Cienfuegos has won first place in the ANAP emulation process. This time it attained outstanding productive results over the past 15 months with the sale to the state of more than 25 million liters of milk, 19,500 tons of rice, 13,000 tons of pork, and 1,000 tons of black beans.

Alberto Curbelo, ANAP president in the province, ratified the commitment of Cienfuegos campesinos to continue working the fields with more efficiency to take from the land all its fruits.

“This will be our unconditional response to the Revolution, which gave us our dignity,” he affirmed.

Also present at the central event were Agriculture Minister Ulises Rosales del Toro; Santiago Pérez Castellanos, head of the food and agriculture department of the Central Committee; and José Ramón Monteagudo Ruiz, first secretary of the Communist Party in Cienfuegos, plus other leaders.
