In accordance with the measures adopted in the country to combat Covid-19, the Political Bureau decided to significantly modify the Party’s plan of national events and commemorations this year, to avoid promoting activities that involve large groups of people.
The approved modification suggests suspension or postponement of planned activities, or commemoration in a more modest fashion, as alternatives to massive events, based on a specific analysis of each of the events planned through July.
As for the events related to historical dates or personalities, they will be commemorated in all cases on the date scheduled, with reduced participation, without massive mobilizations, and will be adequately reflected in the mass media.
The decision applies to events of a national, provincial and local character of the Young Communist League, as well, (which has already announced the postponement of its 11th Congress), mass and social organizations and those organized by municipal and provincial Party committees.
With regard to May Day and July 26th events, the Political Bureau will inform our people of specific decisions to be adopted, in a timely fashion. (Taken from en.granma.cu)
