The members of Copppal condemned the United States blockade against Cuba


Mexico, Jun 4 (RHC) The members of the Permanent Conference of Political Parties of Latin America and the Caribbean (Copppal) condemned the United States blockade against Cuba and repeated their solidarity with the Cuban people.

After the 51st Plenary Meeting of the Conference, which brings together more than 70 parties from the continent, the delegates unanimously approved a resolution condemning the intensified economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by the Government of the United States on Cuba for more than 60 years, the document added.

The blockade and the application of 243 measures adopted during Donald Trump’s administration and maintained by President Joe Biden have been tightened to unsuspected levels.

It is the main obstacle to the development of Cuba’s economy, it impacts all sectors of society and is a flagrant and massive violation of the human rights of Cubans, the text pointed out.

The extraterritorial nature of the US blockade threatens the peace and sovereignty of the Latin America and Caribbean peoples, the Latin American political parties denounced at the end of their conference on Friday.

They demanded an end to that policy, as it has also been demanded every year for three decades by the overwhelming majority of the member States of the United Nations General Assembly.

Copppal also called for Cuba’s removal from the spurious list of State Sponsors of Terrorism, which violates International Law, and has a devastating negative impact on international financial relations and institutions.

We demand the end of media harassment against the Cuban people. Blockade No, Solidarity Yes! Better without the Blockade!  (Source: Prensa Latina).
