Quito, Jun 22 (Prensa Latina) The Association of Cuban Residents in Ecuador (ACURE) restated on Saturday its position of energetic rejection of the U.S. financial, economic and commercial blockade imposed against Cuba for decades.
‘We join all the voices worlwide to reject that unfair and ruthless policy, which has tried to surrender a whole people by hunger and needs from almost 60 years,’ the organization stated on the Internet.
ACURE also denounced that the blockade against Cuba violates freedom and rights, not only of the country in general, but of every Cuban in particular, directly or indirectly affected by the actions and aggression imposed by the U.S. measures.
Likewise, the Association rejected the Helms Burton Act in force since 1996, considering it a violation of international law and a resurgence of the economic genocidal blockade.
Along the same lines, ACURE underscored that the activation of Title III of the aforementioned regulations, constitutes an additional mechanism to try to plunder the resources and wealth of Cuba in order to strangle the people and try to change their political and social system.
