Cuban Parliament Calls for World Solidarity against US Blockade

The Commission for International Relations of the National Assembly of the People's Power (Parliament) called upon the international community on Tuesday to demand the end of the economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba.

Ramon Pez Ferro, president of the commission, presented the members of this working group the draft of the call, unanimously approved after being read by Deputy Yenielys Vilma Regüeiferos at the island's Parliament office.

The document asks for the solidarity of parliaments and peoples from around the world, so they request their respective governments their support for Cuba at the United Nations, when there are only a few days left before the discussion at the UN General Assembly of the Cuban resolution against the blockade.
The absolute truth some intend to conceal –reads the call- is that for over 200 years the United States has tried to control Cuba's destiny in the face of Cubans' determination to live in a free, independent and sovereign nation.

The text recalls that that indefensible US policy against the island caused the death of 3,478 people and disabling injuries to another 2,099, as a consequence of terrorist acts.
