Despite Blockade, the Revolution Continues, Cuban President Says

Havana, Oct 27 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said on Saturday that despite the hostility of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade, the Revolution continues, faithful to its principles.

‘Despite the #blockade, hostility, political maneuvers and the actions #the United States carries out to impose a regime change in #Cuba, the #Cuban Revolution is here, alive and strong, firm, faithful to its principles! #NoMasBloqueo #UnblockCuba #SomosCuba,’ the president posted on his Twitter account @DiazCanelB. A few days ago, the head of State demanded an end to that genocidal policy that Washington has maintained against Cuba for almost six decades.

‘We will continue to demand tirelessly the end to the cruel economic, commercial and financial blockade of #Cuba and just compensation for our people due to the economic and material damage caused in so many years of aggression. #NoMasBloqueo #UnblockCuba #SomosCuba’, Diaz-Canel posted.

On October 31, the United Nations General Assembly will vote for the 27th consecutive year on a draft resolution calling for the end of the US siege of Cuba.

Since 1992, the initiative has had a majority support at UN’s main deliberative body.

On the last three occasions, 191 of all 193 UN member states supported the resolution. In 2017, only the United States and Israel voted against it.

For 26 years, the international community has supported similar initiatives in the multilateral body, where the US siege has been described as a crime, injustice, a violation of human rights, an obstacle to development and a vestige of the Cold War.
