On this April 4th, the emblematic Mella Square of the University of Informatics Sciences (UCI) was the venue to celebrate the 56 and the 57 Anniversaries of the Young Communists League (UJC) and the José Marti Pioneers’ League (OPJM).
The meeting was presided over by Dr. Sc. Natalia Martínez Sánchez, Vicerector for Academic Affairs, accompanied by members of the University Council and the leaders of the political and mass organizations of the institution.
Together with the university community, there was a group of special guests, outstanding young people from BioCubaFarma, who are visiting the University to participate in the festivities.
At the event, Che Guevara’s words about how a young communist should be were remembered. In addition, five new militants were given the cards that certify them as members of the organization.
Members of UCI Communist Party Committee also handed over the card to 11 new members who accredit them as members of the party organization.
Likewise, 91 young people were granted with the Joven 56 Anniversario award conferred by the UJC Committee from UCI; three university projects were also recognized for their significant impact on the computerization of the Cuban society (Sigel-Information Management of the Cuban Electoral System, GINA-Integral Customs Management and Xauce-ATcnea Technological Classroom, and two other projects were acknowledged for their impact on the socio cultural work (Malatesta and PequeCiudad)
The cultural moments were not absent in this celebration, as the pioneers from the community, represented by Liz Charlin Aldana, member of the PequeCiudad project, and the musical group Malatesta interpreted the songs "Guantanamera" and "El punto cubano" respectively.
The keynote words were pronounced by Lester González López, member of the UJC Committee in this house of high studies, who quoted some of the words pronounced by our Commander in Chief on April 4, 1962 in his closing speech of the Young Rebels’ Association Congress, as he urged the Cuban youth not to fail or give up, no matter how hard the circumstances may be.
Likewise, he clearly expressed the commitment of young people to continue working with determination in order to preserve Marti’s spirit in us, and to construct all together a sovereign, socialist, democratic, prosperous and sustainable nation
