Curacao: Caribbean peoples require lifting of the blockade US against Cuba

Trade Unions, political, environmental, peasant and youth, among other social sectors from 12 Caribbean countries, demanded the cessation of economic and financial blockade imposed by the US government to Cuba more than half a century ago .

During the Sixth Assembly of the Peoples of the Caribbean, which recently concluded in Curacao Main Camp, participants also demanded the return of the Cuban territory illegally occupied by the United States in the eastern province of Guantanamo, which maintains a naval base.

Those attending the meeting were also given to promote a Caribbean identity based on respect for diversity and in confronting imperialist aggression, since that region still has the highest rates of territories under colonial and neocolonial rule.

Also they supported the representatives in the Assembly of Caribbean Peoples proclaims in Latin America as a Zone of Peace, signed in Havana in January last year, at the Second Summit of the Community of Latin Americans and the Caribbean.
