As is customary, coordination of the event will be shared with the Cuban Friendship Institute (ICAP).
In keeping with this heartfelt commitment, we invite you to this important occasion where we will discuss current topics involving solidarity with Cuba in the new period. Cuba is the country that for over half a century has resisted the U.S. government's hostile and genocidal policy with heroism and bravery.
The VIII Gathering will also include, among its topics of discussion and debate, the processes that are taking place regionally, the projections for continental solidarity, and the development of new initiatives aimed at strengthening integration, unity, and the defense of our nations' sovereignty and independence.
We will come together under the slogan, "For the unity and integration of our peoples," and we aspire to fulfill our commitment to strengthen the ties of friendship and brotherhood that we share with our sister Republic of Cuba. In the world that we live Cuba has become the universal reference point for dignity and resistance in the face of harassment, increases in war, and the constant attempts of subversion and threats by the empire.
We hope we can count on your presence in Santo Domingo. We look forward to having you and the valuable contributions and initiatives that you can bring to enrich our collective experiences in the struggle against the criminal blockade and the political- ideological media disinformation campaign. Out of this gathering we hope to come away with a strengthening in our working strategy for the continental solidarity with Cuba movement.
