Actions in Many Countries Call for Ending U.S. Blockade of Cuba
Oppose Foreign Interference into
Cuba’s Internal Affairs!
A blockade of one country by another is a de facto act of war. The U.S. has been blockading Cuba since 1962, causing untold damage to the Cuban economy and people. Under the presidency of Donald Trump measures were taken to make life even more difficult for the Cuban people, even under pandemic conditions. Now, under the Biden administration, measures to incite a “colour” counter-revolution against Cuba have increased with the administration putting pressure on all countries to isolate Cuba, incite violence and condone social disorder. The use of algorithms on social media to disseminate lies and slanders and make them go viral has now been fully revealed. This is the kind of practice used to justify the genocidal blockade by declaring that the demand for regime change comes from the Cuban people.
In Miami, Cuban Americans held vigorous Puentes de Amor (Bridges of Love) actions on October 31 to demand an end to the U.S. blockade and other acts of aggression against Cuba. A picket and speak-out was held in front of City Hall with participants undeterred by attempts of counterrevolutionaries gathered nearby to shout them down. The picket was followed by a rally and celebration in the Little Haiti neighbourhood next to the statue of Haitian revolutionary leader Toussaint L’Ouverture. Puentes de Amor leader Carlos Lazo and others gave rousing impromptu speeches at both events, appealing to Cuban Americans irrespective of their ideology to join them in calling on the Biden Administration to stop causing so much harm to Cuban families.
Militant car caravans, pickets and rallies in support of Cuba and the same demands were held in several Canadian cities on October 31 including Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver. The Bridges of Love caravans and actions in support of revolutionary Cuba, its people and their government demanded that foreign governments uphold international rule of law and the UN General Assembly resolutions for the U.S. to end the blockade of Cuba and not permit foreign interference in Cuba’s internal affairs.
The government of Cuba has announced that with the pandemic under control in that country, as of November 16 all-sided measures will be taken to re-open the economy. Cuba will once again be open to foreign travel and tourism and every effort will be taken to not only ensure the safety of the Cuban people and foreigners in Cuba, but to enable Cubans to live their lives free of want despite the crippling sanctions imposed to deprive them of food, medicines and all items they require to produce what they need to feed, clothe, house, educate and look after the well-being of their population.
To cause disruption, the U.S. and the anti-Cuban mafia have set November 15 as the date to foment anti-Cuban activities on Cuban soil. The slogans raised by the Bridges of Love caravans and actions across the world raised the pertinent demands: Hands Off Cuba! No to the Blockade! No to Foreign Interference against Revolutionary Cuba! Meanwhile, for its part, the U.S. is inciting uncouth, foul mouthed, violent counter-revolutionaries of Cuban origin, and others linked to mafia activities in Latin America, to engage in a concerted effort to perpetrate the fraud that it is the Cuban people who are rebelling against an allegedly authoritarian and repressive regime. They claim that to have freedom Cuba needs to open itself to U.S. takeover and adopt the U.S. constitutional order and system of government which is racist, rules over the people in a manner which perpetuates oppression, poverty, hunger, desperation and homelessness and imprisons millions, many in decades-long solitary confinement. All of this is verifiable on the basis of facts, whereas accusations against Cuba are based on rumour, innuendo, defamation and anti-communist ideology, all of which cause grave harm to the people.
The Cuban government has firmly opposed this interference in Cuba’s affairs and counter-revolution on its soil as do Canadians from coast to coast to coast. The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) calls on Canadians and Quebeckers to directly appeal to their members of parliament to not permit Canada to be used as a base to incite a so-called colour revolution against Cuba. Members of Parliament should not associate themselves with the foul-mouthed, uncouth characters who are paid to incite violence and disrupt peaceful discourse. They must speak out against the spreading of lies and use of violence, threats and the crime of genocide to overthrow governments not to the liking of the U.S. and its NATO allies.
MPs should take note of the hearings in the U.S. Congress and Parliament of the United Kingdom which reveal the extent of the use of algorithms on social media by Facebook which incite passions, rile people up, spread uncouth, foul-mouthed accusations, claim they have gone “viral” because they are “popular.” The hearings show how these allegedly popular campaigns are used to blame the people for being the racists, white supremacists and misogynists or left wing extremists. They blame the people for creating the state of anarchy and violence which prevails and the anxiety people are experiencing as a result.
CPC(M-L) calls on Canadian MPs to not permit the covering up of who are the “extremists ” fabricated by Facebook and others like it who admit it is done to make money. Oppose the claims by the likes the U.S. President Biden, Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the heads of NATO and other international organizations under U.S. command, that their interference into the affairs of sovereign countries is democracy-building.
