Supermajority of Cubans vote for revolutionary ‘Families Code’
The Cuban people voted by supermajority on Sept. 25 to approve the Families Code, a
revolutionary law that modernizes, recognizes and legalizes all manifestations of families in
Cuba. “In the real Cuba, Cubans are moving steadily into the future, and we are close to achieving a Code of Families that will be among the most advanced, that exalts human dignity as a supreme value and that will bring us closer to [national hero Jose] Martí’s dream of a Cuba ‘with all and for the good of all.’” — Gerardo Hernández, National Coordinator of the Committees in Defense of the Revolution.
