According to the website of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the People (ICAP, in Spanish), this Monday, the Julio Antonio Mella Camp, in the Western Cuban province of Artemisa, will be welcoming the members of the brigade, who besides marching along Havana’s Revolution Square next 1 May, will attend the traditional solidarity-with-Cuba meeting to be held the next day at the Palacio de las Convenciones.

The visitors, who will stay in Cuba until May 5th, will meet an intensive program of activities which will be started with the conferences “The Hegemonic Politics of the United States against Latin America and the Caribbean” and “The Tightening of the Criminal Blockade of the United States against the Cuban People. Pretentions of the Implementation of the Helms-Burton Law”.
