Estela, who is in Cuba at the invitation of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC), said she admires the Cuban people "for the tenacity they have had to defend themselves, it is incredible," she said.
She referred to the emergence and work of the organization she presides over, originally made up of simple women who became fighters against the crimes of the dictatorship.
The meeting was attended by Noemí Rabaza Fernández, first vice president of ICAP, officials of the institution, representatives of the FMC and the delegation that accompanies Varnes de Carlotto.
Previously, during this visit, the Argentine activist was received by Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, President of the Councils of State and Ministers.
