Prensa Latina | July 26, 2013
Santiago de Cuba, July 26 (AIN).— Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, President of the Councils of State and Ministers, affirmed today that changes currently underway to promote Latin American unity are part of a process which is sure to continue.
“Despite attempts to divide us, to continue sacking our countries, the process of integration within Latin America and the Caribbean is unstoppable,” Raúl affirmed at the July 26th School Complex here, during the 60th anniversary commemoration of the 1953 assaults on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Garrisons.
The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America and other organizations such as the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States were mentioned by Raúl as integrationist entities which stand as evidence to the desire for unity which motivates leaders across the region, despite obstacles created by the United States.
“The peoples of the continent have never failed to offer us solidarity,” the Cuban President said, before mentioning several of the transformative political and social process currently underway in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Raúl recalled that almost half a century after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua emerged.
With the passage of two more decades, Hugo Chávez in Venezuela led the Bolivarian Revolution, today decisively directed by Nicolás Maduro, Raúl stated
He likewise recalled the struggle for change currently spear-headed in the Plurinational State of Bolivia by President Evo Morales; Rafael Correa’s Citizens’ Revolution in Ecuador; and the social changes being advanced by José Mujica in Uruguay.
The Cuban President referred, as well, to efforts undertaken by Prime Ministers Winston Baldwin Spencer, from Antigua and Barbuda; Kenny Davis Anthony, from Santa Lucia; Ralph Gonsalves, from St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Roosevelt Skerry from Dominica – all in attendance at the Santiago event – to support their peoples.
