Cuba Wins and Will Continue to Win – with Truth, Peace and Social Justice

Originally published on Resumen.

In absolute unison with the revolutionary Cuban people, the Network of Intellectuals and Artists in Defense of Humanity (REDH) calls on the entire world to remain alert and oppose the interference that the U.S. government and its cronies intend to apply in Cuba. We send a warning about the implications of the recent campaign for a “humanitarian corridor” that the United States is promoting under the pretext of the pandemic, because Cuba is not only a unique country in the South, which, in addition to being among the first in the world in the vaccination ranking, thanks to its universal policies of humanistic health care and high professionalism, has one of the lowest death rates for the pandemic. Cuba has supported dozens of countries with their offering of humanity assistance to save lives, while the so called “humanitarian interventions” imposed by the United States are all about occupations, designed only to bring about destruction, misery and the most atrocious violations against the dignity of nations and individuals.

The US government is determined to provoke a social explosion in Cuba. To that end the administration of Joseph Biden has not only left every bit of the cruelty of the sanctions that his predecessor Donald Trump put into place but has even tightened them, ratcheting up the subversive drift against Cuba. Trump redoubled the maximum cruel measures of the economic, financial and commercial blockade; moreover, he took advantage of the economic repercussions caused by the pandemic to impose additional punitive measures. It is the imposition of these illegal sanctions that affects Cuba and that is why the people, the government of Cuba and the international community itself are urgently calling for an end to the blockade.

The Network of Intellectuals and Artists in Defense of Humanity urges President Biden to comply with the resolution rejecting the blockade issued on 29 occasions by the UN General Assembly, for being contrary to international law. We also call on Biden to immediately act on the electoral promises he made to revoke the measures taken by Trump to reinforce the blockade.

We whole heartedly support the measures adopted by the Cuban government and its people to defend their independence, their sovereignty and their socialist project of emancipation. We especially support the Cuban people who are mobilized in the street and in the social media in defense of their revolution. It is in the same spirit, that we support the call of President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez encouraging the most democratic of acts of taking the streets by the people, with the revolutionaries at the forefront, to put a stop to this latest threat of a soft coup.

Cuba will win against every imperialist counterrevolutionary attempt! There is no power in the world capable of subduing its heroic people!

“The government of the United States doesn’t want peace. It wants to exploit its system of exploitation, of pillage, of hegemony through war. It wants peace, but what’s happening in Iraq? What happened in Lebanon? Palestine? What’s happening? What’s happened over the last hundred years in Latin America and in the world?”

Does the U.S. empire need to end embargoes against Cuba? Absolutely yes. Open up trade and let the Cuban people determine their own future. However, we can’t just ignore the communist stranglehold Cuba has suffered under, either. Castro and goons were evil monsters, who looted and destroyed Cuba. On the other hand, Castro was likely a product of the CIA to begin with.

Castro wasn’t a cia man otherwise they wouldn’t have tried to kill him on almost a thousand occasions.
Also, lots of american mafia money was rolling into Cuba. They like to specialise in prostitution, drugs, and gambling and send the profits back home.
That all ceased when Castro came to power.
The mafia is the US gov’t and the US gov’t is the mafia so it’s unsurprising that retribution was to follow.
