    Juristas avileños acompañan consulta popular del Código de las Familias

    More than 450 Ciego de Ávila`s jurists (prosecutors, judges, lawyers from collective law firms, notaries, legal advisers, specialists from the Provincial Directorate of Justice and consultants from the Legal Services Company), distributed in the 10 municipalities, participate in the popular consultation of the Code of the Families.

    Edelso Pérez Fleita, president of the branch of the National Union of Jurists of Cuba in the province, emphasized that the professionals grouped in that organization have been present in the three stages of the process.

    Initially they were linked to the dissemination of the project in work and educational centers, and boards of directors of different entities; in addition to training Party and Government cadres, representatives of cultural institutions, leaders of mass organizations and student leaders.

    In a second moment, they were dedicated to guiding community leaders and electoral authorities, with the aim of providing them with the necessary knowledge to develop the popular consultation process.

    They also conceived time for their preparation through meetings between jurists from the province and the country, videoconferences, the reading of the Family Code Project, printed and audiovisual materials, and the content positioned on social networks, he stressed.

    He considered the relevance of this last stage for the training of the jurists who will intervene in the popular consultation, as members of the duos that will accompany the meetings in the neighborhoods, in the processing of information or as electoral supervisors.

    The training of legal staff also represents a guarantee for the quality of this process, taking into account that not all of them are specialists in issues related to families, since there is a tendency for legal professionals to specialize in aspects inherent to their work functions, precise.

    Pérez Fleitas referred to the positioning of content on social networks, the production of the program A Debate, through the provincial radio station Radio Surco; El Mallete section of the “Ponle Corazón” magazine, produced by Ciego de Ávila Television; publications the Invasor newspaper and the Citizen Portal.

    In addition, the use of the local media has been achieved, also with the aim of achieving greater dissemination that fosters comprehensive analysis and allows understanding the superiority, necessity and benefits of this law for Cuban society and family, he added.

    He stated that it is not a "battle" won, judging by the persistence of doubts regarding marriage between people of the same gender and the introduction of the concept of parental responsibility (used to designate what was previously called parental authority), to mention only two illustrative examples.

    These are issues that generate disagreements, stimulated by honest and dishonest reasons, however, after explaining the dimension of the project, it is appreciated that they are based on ignorance or lack of clarity about the text, he explained.

    Not a few are surprised to learn about the pronouncements against family violence and the expansion of the variants of the economic regime of marriage to achieve greater autonomy of the spouses in the decision that is most favorable to their interests.

    In addition, legal-family institutions are updated and perfected: kinship, the obligation to provide food, marriage, de facto union, filiation, parental relationships; and other guard and protection policies.

    It is an expression of the inclusive nature of Cuban society, it is projected to overcome difficulties in the protection of citizenship and adjusts to population dynamics, all based on constitutional precepts.

    The analyzes should not be limited to a tiny number of articles, considering the scope and intention of the proposal, designed with a futuristic vision and defender of civil rights, social and human relations, he insisted.
