Havana, April 1 (RHC) -- Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel today highlighted the mobilizations developed in the world in support of his nation's struggle against the U.S. blockade.

In his profile on the social network X, the president said that "compatriots and friends of our country once again flooded with love for #Cuba several cities around the world".

This commitment to the struggle of the Cuban people, who for more than six decades have been facing a genocidal blockade imposed by the United States, is comforting, he added.

Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez also expressed his gratitude for such expressions of solidarity and said on that social network that this Sunday "solidarity towards our people from different latitudes shone again".

He noted that #TogetherXCuba friends and compatriots abroad raised their claim against the criminal siege that oppresses Cuban families.

From Bahamas, Belize, Japan and Argentina, solidarity activists, friends of Cuba, compatriots and Cuban health collaborators joined the international caravan demanding an end to the blockade of the U.S. government, the Foreign Ministry reported.

Meanwhile, in the United States, the caravan against the U.S. blockade organized by the organization Bridges of Love mobilized people in several cities under the slogan "Wherever you are, raise your voice for the Cuban people".

Among all Cubans inside and outside the island we can do a lot to mitigate the effects of the blockade, Cuban American Carlos Lazo, organizer of this initiative turned into a movement, which mobilizes hundreds of people on the last Sunday of each month and develops actions of solidarity with the island, told Prensa Latina.

Likewise, members of the Union of Cuban Residents in Argentina denounced the effects of the U.S. policy against the largest of the Antilles and demanded the cessation of interference in Cuba's internal affairs.

In Panama City, nationals and Cubans condemned the siege from the top of the emblematic Ancon Hill, 199 meters high where the tricolor flag flies, symbol of sovereignty for the Isthmians.

The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples, for its part, reported on the social network X activities of this nature also in Australia, Nicaragua, Canada and Bolivia, among other countries. (Source: Prensa Latina)
