HAVANA — Delegates from more than 20 youth organizations from across Latin America building Dec. 7-13 World Festival of Youth and Students to be held in Quito, Ecuador, gathered here April 28 to discuss themes for the festival, called at a meeting in Pretoria, South Africa, in March. Proposals included using the festival to step up the international fight to free the Cuban Five and demanding U.S. hands off Cuba, Venezuela and elsewhere in Latin America, including an end to the U.S. embargo against Cuba. Speaking is Yuniasky Crespo Baquero (center), first secretary of the Union of Young Communists of Cuba.
