Cuban First Vice-president Acknowledges Religious Community Support of the RevolutionHAVANA, Cuba.- Cuban First Vice-president Miguel Diaz-Canel acknowledged the spiritualist community in Cuba for its commitment and Support of the people, the Revolution and the cause of the five Cuban anti-terrorists, who were arrested in 1998 in the United States.

During a meeting with representatives of the religious community, Diaz-Canel said that amidst the ongoing process of economic transformations in Cuba it is crucial to focus on the spirituality, sentiments, emotions and ideas of the people.

“If we are able to strengthen our economy and we assume the results of this process with culture, knowledge, decency, without vanity and selfishness, and in a supportive manner, then we will be defending our society, our ideals; we all agreed to these issues,” said Diaz-Canel who affirmed the government and Communist Party’s trust in Cuban spiritualists as he underscored their struggle for unity.

The Cuban first-vice president called on the religious community to keep defending its identity, based on historic roots, and without allowing the import of foreign formulas in order to guarantee its own autonomy.

He alerted that the Barack Obama administration has allocated millions of dollars to finance over 113 subversive programs against several sectors of Cuban society, including the religious community, in an effort to break the unity of Cubans and their Revolution.

The spiritualist community currently counts on over 550 societies in Cuba who freely carry out their activities with the support of local authorities. Members of the community expressed their gratefulness for the meeting and explained about their work in the benefit of human beings and society. They also supported the call issued by Cuban President Raul Castro to keep educating the Cuban people.

The meeting was also attended by the head of the Cuban Communist Party Religious Affairs Office, Caridad Diego and other party officials.
