Young Cubans Celebrate Multiple Anniversaries

Camagüey, Apr 2 – Under the slogan “For the Love of My Homeland,” celebrations for the 52nd anniversary of the Young Communist League (UJC) and the 53rd anniversary of the Jose Marti Pioneer Organization (OPJM) continue today throughout the country.

The UJC provincial committee in this city reports that the celebrations are also motivated by the 55th anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, the 50th anniversary of the Youth Technical Brigades, the 25th anniversary of Marti Youth Movement, and the 10th anniversary of the Jose Marti Art Teachers Brigade.

Students, labor groups and communities are carrying out activities to celebrate the work of youth of all ages in Camaguey, some 570 kilometers east of Havana, said the UJC leadership.

Activities aimed at combating indiscipline and illegalities, and strengthening morality, good manners, and ethics, are taking place in this context. Today’s agenda also includes an intensified campaign for the release of the Cuban anti-terrorist fighters who remain unjustly imprisoned in the United States.

A world message action on the Twitter social network for the Cuban Five, as the Cuban anti-terrorist fighters are internationally known, is scheduled for April 3, calling youth throughout the world to fight for the return to the island of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, and Antonio Guerrero.

These men, along with Rene Gonzalez and Fernando Gonzalez – who are now back in Cuba after completing their prison sentences – were arrested in 1998 while monitoring violent groups in Miami that were preparing terrorist actions against Cuba.
