The International Cuba Conference will take place during the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (formerly International Women’s Month) — CSW67 — activities. This UN-sponsored annual event will include a delegation of Cuban representatives and leaders, organized by the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC), who will be able to participate in the International Conference.

We call on the broad opposition to the US economic sanctions and political bellicosity against Cuba, deepened under the Trump and Biden Administrations, to endorse this Call in a spirit of unity and struggle around the following demands:

  • Take Cuba off Washington’s List of State-Sponsors of Terrorism!
  • End the US Blockade of Cuba!
  • End All US Anti-Cuba Economic and Travel Sanctions!

Our purpose will be to educate, organize, and mobilize against Washington’s brutal and criminal economic and political war against Cuba: to boost local anti-blockade coalitions; to organize solidarity aid and travel to Cuba; to expand and increase participation in monthly Caravans against the blockade inspired by Puentes de Amor; and to organize for the passage of more Resolutions against the blockade adding to the growing list of legislative, labor, and other institutional bodies going on record against US anti-Cuba sanctions and for US-Cuba normalization.

This work, and future projected actions to fight the criminal US blockade, will be registered in the plenaries, workshops, and public activities for the Conference weekend!
