San Jose, Oct 30 (Prensa Latina) The Yamileth Lopez Bolivarian Circle (CBYLO) and the Costa Rican Popular Center for Social Studies (CPCES) on Tuesday condemned the US efforts to manipulate the international community to prevent a new condemnation of Washington’s blockade of Cuba.
‘In a frenzy of its crazy war against the legitimate Cuban government, with which it violates Cuba’s sovereignty and undermines the self-determination of its people, Washington is trying, with an unusual schizophrenia and ridiculous nonsense, to justify the barbarism of its economic, commercial and economic blockade of Cuba,’ a statement from the two organizations says.
The text notes that the Trump administration, with artful and indecent stratagems, tries to attack the social project of the Cuban Revolution and to torpedo the draft resolution demanding an end to the blockade and to be voted on October 31, for the 27th time, at the United Nations General Assembly.
The document states that for purpose of the propaganda, manipulation of public opinion and dissuasive pretensions to weaken the support from the international community to Cuba’s resolution, the United States introduced eight amendments relating to the 2030 Agenda and human rights to vary the rejection of that economic siege with impunity.
In this regard, both CBYLO and CPCES affirm that the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, to which Washington alludes in the alleged amendments, is an offense to intelligence, since Cuba has surpassed the Millennium Development Goals, while at the same time it is among few countries in a favorable position to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda.
Cuba is also an example of a free community that has conquered the people’s original power and shapes a full democracy and true sovereignty, states the declaration, which was posted on social media.
‘The world will continue to submit the just demand to the United States for the abuses of the genocidal blockade and will vote once again at the UN General Assembly in favor of the Cuban resolution that demands an end to the blockade of Cuba,’ the statement says.
