Statement Issued by Associations of Cuban Residents in Canada
The associations of Cubans residing in Canada demand once again, and with renewed conviction, the immediate lifting of the U.S. blockade against Cuban families and the cessation of the media campaigns that, financed by the U.S., try to tarnish the image of Cuba in the world based on lies and slander.
Sixty-three years ago, the U.S. government institutionalized its open aggression against the Cuban people by imposing an economic, financial and commercial blockade, which today is the most comprehensive and oldest system of measures and sanctions in the history of humanity.
Together with this sanctions regime, the U.S. tries by all means to incite acts of vandalism using political operators on the island with the express aim of disturbing the tranquility of the streets in our country and destroying its constitutional order. Cuba is a land of peace and will continue to be.
We reiterate our support and our willingness to help our people.
We wish peace and prosperity to the motherland.
No more penalties. Down with the blockade.
