    La ciencia e innovación que necesita el municipio Venezuela la tiene dentro

    A phrase said by Jorge Luis Brooch Lorenzo, member of the Secretariat of the PCC Central Committee and Head of its Department of Social Attention, could summarize his first day of check-ups and visits in the municipality of Venezuela.

    "We have to break the cycle of precariousness with education and culture," he said before an audience that included government and Party officials in that territory, the Technical Advisory Council, representatives of global organizations, mass organizations and militants. His words summed up a meeting to discuss the Social Prevention program promoted by the country's highest leadership.

    This program has two major tributaries: care for children, adolescents and youth, and monitoring of communities identified as vulnerable. In addition, weighing on both the urgency and need to add science and innovation to all processes so that they lead to development and well-being.

    Broche Lorenzo occupied part of the exchange in illustrating how, from the figure of the President of the Republic and First Secretary of the PCC, a management and decision-making system has been built on these pillars, by using the scientific potential and creativity of the socioeconomic actors in the generation of solutions to diverse and complex problems, from the top down, and vice versa.

    Thus, when asking about pregnant and giving birth adolescents, under 14 years of age, and knowing that in Venezuela there are 19, he indicated going beyond the figure and coordinating actions to reincorporate these young women into studies or employment, even knowing that the territory does not have too many sources of work, in addition to the fishing activity and the Cubasoy company.

    “It is the municipality that has to generate inward development”, he commented and continued adding edges to the analysis by asking about the training of masters and doctors, the territorial strategy and the way in which, collectively, material challenges should be faced and subjective. “You have already experienced a project, it changed many things and when it was finished some of them fell back into oblivion. They have to learn those lessons.”

    If all this speech had not been the culmination of a busy day, of walking in the sun and exchanging with people on the street, it might seem that things are said more easily than they are done. However, Broche Lorenzo and the provincial and municipal officials who accompanied him heard the proposals of the people from Júcaro, at midday, without their spirits "warming up".

    People spoke of a previous visit, when Deputy Prime Minister Jorge Luis Tapia Fonseca had walked the streets of Júcaro and indicated prompt attention to the pain of the fishing village. Some of those instructions were fulfilled and others were not, that is why an elderly woman who does not have a decent bathroom, a mother who needs support to raise the level of the floor so that her house does not flood, and a woman who was waiting for Broche Lorenzo was there, with roof problems...

    It became clear that integrated community work goes beyond painting the school or fixing up a park. You have to control the community, know its needs inch by inch, always respond to people and maintain a constant, systematic follow-up on the ground.

    This comprehensive look at the communities, especially those considered vulnerable, cannot be done without the assistance of the entities embedded in them. Hence, the orders of the Júcaro Marine Fisheries Base Business Unit (UEB) are not only to capture shrimp or fish, but also to be the heart of the town.

    To a certain extent they already are, because on the one hand, they employ not a few people from Júcaro, and on the other, they go beyond the perimeter fences with concrete actions (direct sale of productions, attention to prioritized centers, and painting of social centers).

    Yudania Fernández Blanco, Secretary of the Party Committee and Head of Human Resources, spoke of a visible economic recovery, a direct result of the efforts of the workers. With the plans fulfilled or well underway in its three indicators (shrimp, scale and industry), Pesca Marina de Júcaro is already applying some of the 43 measures for the business sector and is preparing to distribute profits at the end of the first semester.

    Known are the fleet repairs carried out in the entity itself, after COVID-19 allowed the anchors to be lifted, and the search for new sources of income, with the sale of whitebait as animal feed, for example.

    Of course, not everything is full networks in Júcaro. Workers and directors of the UEB spoke of the need for better fishing gear and the desire to close the production cycle, by having a shrimp processing plant, which would save the cost of maquila. Today the Ciego de Ávila shrimp must be sent to Camagüey for processing, while the residents of the Marina Marlin Azulmar must buy it in Havana.

    Broche Lorenzo spoke, then, of making the technological growth of the UEB coincide with the development plans of the municipality, and starting to generate, together, ideas on how to materialize those aspirations: local development projects, new actors with access to state financing or of foreign investment. “Science and innovation”, he stressed.

    Although Ángel Sánchez Lugones may not be able to draw on paper the design of the bronze piece that made it possible to fill bottles of oxygen and compressed air in that asphyxiating August that we experienced here last year, no one would doubt that his is pure and simple innovation. In his "brain" was the between, of course, in 3D, and the night they called him to ask him for his expertise as a mechanical turner, he didn't even look at the time. The next day, with a piece of bronze tube, he made the first pieces and then completed 24, for the eight boats where the balloons could be filled.

    He still had greasy hands from the lathe this Wednesday when Jorge Luis Broche told him that it was an honor to meet him, because he had saved his people, and at 59 years old, Ángel Sánchez teared up a little without fully believing that they called him a hero.

    The bottles were filled at the Marlin Azulmar Marina and Broche Lorenzo also went there to give the workers recognition and thanks for their contribution on days of great tension. The member of the Secretariat of the Central Committee learned that the entity is recovering activity levels after the COVID-19 break.

    Emigdio González Gómez, deputy director, explained that the eight liveaboards operate in the Ciénaga de Zapata and Jardines de la Reina, and that sales are made online, more than three months in advance. 2023 is already being sold, so the manager ventured to predict better results this year.
