Cuban women speak in NYC

Published Mar 11, 2009 3:20 PM

The Solidarity Center hosted a meeting and reception on March 4 to welcome two revolutionary women who traveled to New York City from socialist Cuba to participate in International Working Women’s Month activities at the United Nations. Shown in the photo above, Maritzel Gonzalez, a leader of the Federation of Cuban Women, and Dora Carcano, Coordinator of the Regional Office of the Women’s International Democratic Federation, gave inspiring, concrete examples to show how the lives of the Cuban people, especially women, have vastly improved since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution 50 years ago. They also spoke about the ongoing struggle to free the Cuban Five, political prisoners who have been held unjustly in U.S. penitentiaries for more than 10 years. Nieves Ayress from La Peña del Bronx chaired the meeting. Marcia Campos, president of the WIDF visiting from Brazil, gave solidarity greetings.
