Eliminate the blockade

Solidarity call: CTC declaration against economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by United States government against Cuba

To all our friends around the world.

The Central Workers’ Union of Cuba (CTC) and its National Trade Union Branches representing Cuban workers, in the lead-up to Cuba introducing a report at the General Assembly of United Nations demanding the elimination of the unilateral, cruel and genocidal blockade of the United States against our country, call friends around the world to support this declaration.

Due to the harm that blockade represents for the normal development of the economy in the country, Cuban workers acting as creators of wealth will continue looking for solutions to face difficulties, turning each working place into an impregnable bastion that prevents our people from kneeling down. And even under these circumstances our people will continue fulfilling their international duty and raising their voice defending justice in any place around the world.

Although the US President has expressed several times that the blockade is obsolete and that it should be lifted and even encouraged Congress to work in that direction the blockade is still in force.

Friends all over the world:

We call on you to join us in condemning this cruel measure that doesn’t allow us to increase production and services with fullness and to achieve a prosperous and sustainable development of our people.

Everybody voting against Blockade!

San Carlos y Peñalver, Ciudad de La Habana, Cuba
