The Union of Cuban Residents in Argentina (URCA) rejected the new measures of the US Government that seeks to suffocate Cuba by putting in force Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, written since 1996.
In an evening arranged by the Cuban embassy in Buenos Aires, community members of that Caribbean nation and supportive Argentine friends shared a night marked by Cuban identity in which they reaffirmed their loyalty to the Revolution led by Fidel Castro.
The event was attended by the anti-terrorist hero and fighter Ramon Labañino, Vice President of the Association of Economists and Accountants (ANEC), who once again thanked all the Argentines who, with their solidarity, made it possible for him and his four colleagues to return to their country. Along with Rene Gonzalez, Gerardo Herandez, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez, Labañino suffered 16 years of unjust imprisonment in the United States for defending his country from terrorist acts planned by the right rancid seated in Florida.
It is always good to return to this country, the land of a man who wanted to give everything including his own life so that the peoples were free of the US empire, said the hero in reference to Ernesto Che Guevara.
During the evening, URCA President, Adonis Torres, read a statement from that organization in which they categorically reject the upsurge of US economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba.He restated that Cubans 'will continue to decide the fate of a free and sovereign nation.'
Among tangos, rumba and son, Cuban and Argentine friends enjoyed an emotional evening, a time also to review everything done in favor of solidarity and defense of the island in recent months.
The musical part was carried out by the soloist Yaisel Burgal, the tango dancers Juan Manuel Alemani and Miriam Cuaglarini; the Colombuco group, led by Liliana Hidalgo and Sabastian Vazquez and the Sentido de pertenencia group, directed by Yordanka Navarro.
