Dear Manolo; comrades who are participating in the Summit of the Peoples;
I was not wrong when I said that I will not be in the Summit of the Americas but the voice of Cuba certainly will.
You are our voice. The Revolution has always had it very clear: wherever governments deprive us from our voice, peoples will be there to represent us, to speak on our behalf.
