Castro meets with Japanese activists

Social Share

HAVANA – Fidel Castro has met with hundreds of Japan-based activists who came to Cuba in what they call a Peace Boat to promote global peace and human rights.

The 84-year-old ex-leader addressed the nearly 1 000 visitors at Havana’s convention centre.
As he has for months, Castro warned of the danger of nuclear war pitting the United States and Israel against Iran.
Peace Boat is a Japan-based nonprofit organisation that is using a rust-dotted chartered passenger ship to travel the world on “peace voyages” twice a year. It has come to Cuba 14 times since 1990.
