For once more the U.N. General Assembly, held yesterday on November 1, 2017, has voted a special Resolution for the lifting of the U.S. blockade on Cuba. The total number of 191 countries voted in favor of the Resolution, while only the United States of America and their puppet Israel were the only countries to vote against the resolution.
The blockade against Cuba is a policy, which has been imposed for over 50 years by the U.S.A. and constitutes a flagrant, massive, and systematic violation of the human rights of the Cuban people. This imperialist policy of blockade is an act of genocide, which intends to economically strangle the Cuban people and force their surrender. The human damage produced by the implementation of this policy is incalculable. It constitutes clearly an obstacle to Cuba’s economic and social development.
However, despite the imposition of this genocidal policy by the U.S., the Cuban people resisted and continue resisting by achieving a lot of successes in the development of socialism. Moreover, the clear attempt of the isolation of Cuba by the U.S.A. has not prevented at all the expressions of solidarity with Cuba. Cuba is internationally respected and this respect will keep growing.
During the 19th World Festival of Youth and Students which took place just two weeks ago in Sochi in Russia, 290 Cuban young delegates proved that the Cuban people constitute an example of peace, solidarity and friendship, and that the act of blockade against their nation have no stand or excuses. It is in fact a clear act of aggression and violation by the USA against the free will of the Cuban people.
The World Federation of Democratic Youth express once more its unconditional support towards the Cuban Revolution and repeats that each people must be free to decide which path of social and economic development is aiming to follow. WFDY also call its members to continue expressing their solidarity to the Cuban people and condemn the imperialist blockade imposed on them by the U.S.A.
Finally WFDY reaffirms the Cuban youth and its member organization the Young Communist League (UJC) of Cuba that is standing to their side in confronting imperialism. Their struggle and resistance in safeguarding the Cuban Revolution is providing courage and hope to the international youth anti-imperialist movement.
Long Live the Cuban Revolution!
Long Live the anti-imperialist struggle!
