Cybernauts of the world will express from today their solidarity with Cuba by highlighting the work of this country through messages in an international twitter account in the context of the celebration of the Human Rights Day.
According to Cubadebate website, the initiative, with the hash tag # DDHHCuba and # DerechosdeCuba, will take place from 14:00 local time (19:00 GMT) on Monday until 12:00 (17:00 GMT) next Wednesday.
Â¿In the social network Twitter will be felt the solidarity with Cuba, a country with an undeniable work for the basic human rights of its citizens, despite the U.S. blockade against Cuba which is maintained for more than half a century, Â¿ notes the publication.
According to CubaDebate, participants will share solidarity messages, photos, videos and multimedia to reveal the work of the revolutionary process begun in this Caribbean country in January 1959.
Cybernauts will also demand an end to the economic, commercial and financial blockade against the Caribbean nation, and the release of the Cuban antiterrorist fighters imprisoned in U.S. jails since 1998.
Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino, Fernando González, Gerardo Hernández and René González were arrested in Miami for monitoring groups that organized and financed terrorist actions against Cuba.
From the internationally known as the Cuban Five, only Rene Gonzalez is on the island, after serving his sentence and renouncing the U.S. citizenship.
CubaDebate reminds that the Caribbean country is one of the few who met the Millennium Development Goals agreed by the United Nations, including eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education and promoting gender equality.
The Human Development Report 2013 of that world organization states that Cuba ranks 59 among 187 countries in this indicator.
