Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez today welcomed the visit of Australia's 'Cruz del Sur' Brigade.

In his profile on X social media, the top representative of Cuban diplomacy recalled that this solidarity movement has been building bridges of friendship between this country and Cuba for four decades.

“We appreciate your valuable support in the struggle for the lifting of the U.S. blockade, Rodriguez wrote in his message.

Together with the Australia-Cuba Friendship Society, the “Cruz del Sur Brigade” (Southern Cross Brigade) supports the right of Cuba to its sovereignty and independence, and demands the lifting of the blockade the United States has enforced for more than six decades.

It also calls for the return of the territory occupied by the illegal U.S. naval base in Guantanamo (east) and joined the battle for the return of the Five Cuban Heroes, who were imprisoned in the U.S. for defending Cuba against terrorist actions orchestrated in Florida.

The Brigade’s solidarity actions include direct contact with the population and voluntary work.

This group will travel around the Isle of Youth, Villa Clara and other destinations in Cuba in order to visit schools, hospitals, farms and environmental and social projects, reported the Foreign Ministry on the social network X.
