Women’s Int’l Federation: End the U.S. blockade against Cuba! #NoMasBloqueo

Pronouncement

Havana, Nov. 11 — The Regional Office of the Federación Democrática Internacional de Mujeres / Women’s International Democratic Federation (FDIM) for the Americas and the Caribbean, together with the 68 national women’s organizations affiliated and associated with FDIM in this area, whose work it coordinates on behalf of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC), expresses its unconditional support for the firm proposals made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, before the diplomatic corps accredited to Cuba on 10 November, by exposing the new undisguised and abominable warp of the government of the United States and other influential figures in that nation … with its despicable 29 declarations, applicable around November 15, aimed at trying to show Cuba as a failed state, and to do so, to try to subvert the constitutional order, alter the citizen’s tranquility, and damage peace in Cuba, with actions that provoke instability and violence, which include pressures and threats to governments of other countries and diplomats accredited in Cuba to carry out actions requested by the United States to achieve their goals.

All this, while the committed, capable and reliable authorities of Cuba, together with their people of women, men and brave young people,  laborious, and courageous, among which the scientific community stands out, have engaged and achieved worthily, the almost absolute control of the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, and its effects in all spheres of life of the country, through the mass vaccination of 75% of the adult population with drugs manufactured in Cuba, proven by the relevant authorities, and have won for the country the first place to begin vaccinating its children aged 2 to 18, with the express consent of the beneficiaries.

At the same time, the country has provided the assistance of its doctors and other health workers to more than 40 nations in the world to save human lives, with proven success, in addition to having already shared significant quantities of these vaccines with several countries.

However, in the face of so much evidence of the protection of life as the main human right of individuals, among other fundamental rights reliably protected by Cuban society throughout its more than 60 years of existence, the United States government, frustrated champion of respect for human rights in the world, and its hypocritical allies in the region, only manage to seek the intensification of the economic, commercial and financial blockade against our country, with increasing unilateral coercive measures, at all costs…

That is why the FDIM Regional Office for the Americas and the Caribbean calls on women’s organizations in the Americas and the Caribbean, and throughout the world, as well as international public opinion, to speak out against this new, brutal and infamous outrage against Cuba with strong solidarity actions that demonstrate recognition of Cuba’s efforts and resistance to the frequent and unsuccessful onslaught of the imperialist power against this enterprising country.  We also urge them to remain alert to the actions of the counter-revolution in the countries, which are being unscrupulously demanded by the current U.S. government and its acolytes, and financed with U.S. taxpayers’ money.

Have no doubts, just as the “Historical Leader of the Cuban Revolution, Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, spent immortality convinced that “the Cuban people will win”, the current Maximum Leadership, Continuity of the Revolution, and the people all, their women, men and young people will remain faithful to that Legacy, and to the Values inculcated by Che “Hasta la Victoria Siempre”.

#CubaVive

We will resist and we will conquer!
