South African Communist Party

16 November 2021 The South African Communist Party (SACP) stands with the government and people of Cuba in defence of their democratic national sovereignty, their right to self-determination, their right to make their own transformation and development policy choices free from imperialist and any external interference and subjugation. The imperialist regime of the United States is adopting a new round of measures to destabilise Cuba and destroy Cuban independence. This is aimed at subordinating Cuba to the whims of the capitalist ruling class in the United States and its imperialist agenda. For over half-a-century the United States has been pushing and intensifying imperialist measures to interfere in the national affairs of Cuba, with the ulterior motive of regime change. These measures include the illegal, criminal and extra-territorial blockade of Cuba, the occupation of the Cuban territory of Guantanamo Bay, the creation and sponsoring of groups of agents, showered with biased media coverage propaganda, attempts at assassinating Cuban leaders, to name but a few. Now the United States government aims to justify the tightening of its blockade with the 243 new sanctions imposed by its former president, Donald Trump, and maintained in full force by the big liar, its new president, Joe Biden. During his campaign for the presidency of the United States, the big liar said he would reverse the draconian measures imposed by Trump and normalise relations with Cuba based on the little progress made under Barack Obama as the president of the United States. Now he is doing the exact opposite. Biden’s tightening of the measures adopted by the Trump administration is in addition to over 60 genocidal sanctions imposed by the United States on the Cuban people during the COVID-19 pandemic. The SACP rejects the imperialist measures in solidarity with the Cuban people. The United Nations has, for 29 years in a row, overwhelmingly voted for the United States government to stop its illegal and unilateral economic embargo on Cuba. The SACP reiterates its call to the United States to, unconditionally and with immediate effect, end its occupation of the Cuban territory of Guantanamo Bay, its illegal, criminal and extra-territorial blockade of Cuba, and all its machinations in the affairs of the Cuban government and people.
