Chile’s solidarity movement urges the US to change its policy on Cuba

Santiago de Chile, Feb 17 (Prensa Latina) Members of the metropolitan zone of the movement of solidarity with Cuba in Chile delivered on Wednesday to the US embassy in this capital a letter condemning the White House’s blockade against Cuba.

The letter, addressed to President Joe Biden, Congress and the people of the United States, demands the lifting of the blockade maintained by Washington for almost 60 years, in order to comply with international regulations on peaceful coexistence among nations.

It adds that in the midst of the devastation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, it is even more imperative to put an end to the economic, financial and commercial war against the Cuban people, which has caused enormous material damage and loss of lives, but has not been able to prevent Cuba’s unwavering determination to follow its independent path.

The text recalls that during 2020 the work of the Cuban doctors of the Henry Reeve Medical Contingent brought health and solidarity to over 40 countries of all continents in spite of the tightening of the US blockade and the extraterritorial sanctions against third countries to prevent them from consolidating commercial ties with Cuba.

The letter also points out that during the last 27 years, the UN General Assembly, including the majority of the main allies of the United States, have voted for the lifting of that ‘unfair and inhuman policy, a true shame for humanity,’ in view of which the Washington government has been isolated from the international community.
