Human Rights Day

Among the reasons to celebrate
are Cuba’s achievements in the protection of
children, as highlighted by UNICEF
Granma news staff
positioned Cuba in 16th place based
on its educational development indices.
Innumerable children, young people and members of
mass organizations led Human Rights Day celebrations
in Cuba. Squares and parks across the country played
host to diverse activities, including debates and
discussions in various universities.
Among the topics discussed were access to
information and communications technology, which in
Cuba are at the service of the people; internet
connectivity, which is currently being facilitated
and prioritized at social and community centers and
institutions; as well as current efforts to combat
subversion through the use of such technologies.
It is precisely younger generations, which figure
among the high priority groups with regard to social
policies, who raised their voices in song on a day
of various activities which included book sales,
dances and sporting events.
Among the reasons to celebrate are Cuba’s
achievements “in the protection of children,” as
highlighted by UNICEF, while UNESCO, in its most
recent global Education For All Monitoring Report
(2012), positioned Cuba in 16th place based on its
educational development indices.
