Paris, Jan 3 (Prensa Latina) The Association Cuba Cooperation France (CubaCoop) highlighted this Friday the resistance and unity of the Cuban people in the face of the escalation of US hostility in 2019.
The problems and obstacles created in Cuba by the Trump administration seemed insurmountable, but once again the resistance and unity of the Cuban people allowed them to find strength and solutions to maintain progress in the development of the country, the organization noted.
The association founded in 1995 to promote ties of friendship and solidarity with Cuba recalled President Miguel Diaz-Canel’s speech at the end of the year, when he noted that Washington’s hostility was faced without the need to appeal to neoliberal recipes, such as closing schools and hospitals, or raising the prices of fuel and electricity.
Last year, Cubans demonstrated their ability to overcome the tightening of the blockade, with a stable economy (which grew a modest 0.5 percent) and intact social protection, despite the unfair, inhuman and illegal measures, CubaCoop stressed.
With the purpose of strangling the Cuban economy, Trump did not cease to attack the small country, denounced the association that in the last two decades has promoted several projects of popular benefit in transport, water supply, renewable energy and culture in the provinces of Cienfuegos, Havana, Santiago de Cuba and Matanzas.
In this context, the association ratified its support for Cuba in 2020 and its commitment to cooperation, as a means to oppose the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed for almost 60 years.
