Washington, Oct 31 (Prensa Latina) The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity for the Peoples made a call to solidarity friends from all over the world, particularly those living in the United States, to participate today in a mass tweet against the blockade.
A statement issued by the Committee headquartered in California reiterated that on November 1st, for the 26th time, Cuba will present the resolution ‘Need to put an end to the U.S. Economic, Commercial and Financial Blockade against Cuba’.
‘The United Nations General Assembly will vote on the resolution presented by Cuba. Once again the entire world will defend the unconditional end of the criminal and inhumane blockade as it has since 1992,’ said the statement.
‘The annual vote in the United Nations exposes the great hypocrisy of each U.S administration while isolating the world’s most powerful country from the community of nations around the world,’ said the committee.
‘Every year the vast majority of members vote in favor of the resolution. Last year the vote marked a new precedence when all member countries voted for the end of the blockade with 2 abstentions, for the first time, United States and Israel,’ said the statement.
The committee, which suggested to use on Twitter hashtags as #NomasBloqueo, #Niunpasoatras and #UnblockCuba, said that the United States continues to give itself the right to implement a policy that violates the spirit of the Charter of the United Nations.
The statement said that the United States is flagrantly denying the health and prosperity of a peaceful people that have never threatened, occupied or perpetrated a terrorist action against the United States or any other country for that matter.
‘The only crime of Cuba is its decision of be a free, sovereign and socialist country just 90 miles from the Empire,’said the statement.
‘Along with diplomats, experts in human rights, social movements, religious, trade unionists and activists from all parts of the world, we raise our voices against this obsolete and failed criminal policy that has been applied for more than half a century,’ said the statement.
