Some people have been scandalized by the confirmation of a single Party, reconfirmed during the 1st Conference of the Cuban Communist Party. I would like to remind them that in addition to a single Party we also have:

Only one Union of Journalists

Only one Union of Writers and Artists

Only one Association of Farmers

Only one Organization of Primary and Secondary Students (Pioneers)

Only one Federation of Media Studies Students

Only one Federation of University Students

Only one Union of Lawyers

Only one Union of Workers

Only one Federation of Women

Only one Association of Pigeon Fanciers

Only one Association of Philatelists

Only one Association of Veterans (ACRC)

Only one Association of Amateur Radio Enthusiasts

and a long list that would bore the most tolerant reader.
