Prensa Latina | March 03, 2022

Geneva, Mar 3 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s permanent representative to the UN, Juan Antonio Quintanilla, reiterated Cuba’s decision to maintain the socialist path sovereignly chosen by its people, despite aggressions such as the US blockade.

The ambassador stressed that this is the decision of the Cuban people, taken more than 60 years ago and ratified in 2019 in a constitutional referendum.

According to Quintanilla, nothing will change this position, alluding to the intensification of the blockade and the most recent destabilization plans promoted by the United States.

“The blockade constitutes the most flagrant and massive violation of the human rights of an entire people and the main obstacle to its economic and social development,” he highlighted.

The challenge anyone can try on social media seems simple: Put your name in the Google search engine, or that of your sister, your mother or your daughter and, next to it, the word “found.” The result is in no way simple, but rather terrifying. It is enough to press a key to come across a list of horrors, the result of male violence.
The search leaves no room for doubt: being born female involves many dangers, greater or lesser ones depending on the region or country where you were born, and also many challenges to overcome in the pursuit of equality.
