Artemisa, Cuba - The President of the Councils of State and Ministers of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, facing the current situation that we Cubans are experiencing today, has summoned us to Think as a country.
And what it is precisely to think as a country, but to get up every day for Cuba, to think what we can do for everyone, regardless of belief, race, profession, sex; and give everything in our possibilities for the social development.
The fuel crisis in the country, generated by the tight commercial, economic and financial blockade imposed by the United States government, does not daunt any Cuban, but strengthens us more and more; and the solidarity, which grows every hour that happens, is an example of that.
To think like a country, it is also after enjoying the first sip of coffee in the morning, going out to the streets thinking that others need us; that we live in society and together we can once again overcome this difficult moment.
In article 4 of the Constitution of the Republic of Cuba, it is stated that the defense of the socialist homeland, is the greatest honor and the supreme duty of each Cuban, so let's go TODAY to our streets in defense of our Cuba, convinced that we will achieve it by ... Think like a country!
