Carmen Diniz, coordinator of the Brazilian Committee of Solidarity with Cuba, said that in the framework of the 92nd anniversary of the birth of Commander Ernesto Che Guevara on June 14, there will be supporting tasks for the Nobel Prize in Brazil and will seek to expand continental solidarity with this initiative, Cubaminrex published.
Diniz, who is also the coordinator of the Brazil Chapter of the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity of People, explained that "the first thing to do is to make the media aware of this proposal, not only for health reasons, but also for Cuba, in order to condemn the blockade".
