A Sunday of rights

Diana, a sixteen-year-old girl, wants to vote, she can vote; and for her, next Sunday is a new expected experience. She remembers that she was always close to the polls, although in a different way, at that time she was the pioneer in red and white uniform who greeted each voter. But in the 2017-2018 Cuba General Elections, Diana nominated -together with her relatives and neighbors- the candidates and she was one more member of the two thousand 750 Nomination Assemblies of candidates for delegates to the municipal assemblies of the People´s Power, already held in the most western territory.
