Cuba warns European Parliament against becoming ‘a pawn of Washington’

From: Morning Star

CUBA has condemned a “a dangerous politicised move” by a group in the European Parliament that it says is turning the body into a pawn of Washington.


The European People’s Party group has tabled a motion for debate on human rights on the socialist island entitled Government crackdown on protests and citizens in Cuba.

It refers to the US-funded instability on the socialist island in June, when a co-ordinated social media campaign attempted to stir up anti-government sentiment.

London

One of our supporters from London summarised the day’s activities: “In south London we held a speakout against poverty, inequality, austerity and evictions today and held up the example of Cuba as what is possible when you break free from capitalist, comparing Cuba’s inspiring revolutionary response to the pandemic with Britain’s murderous one.”

Unite calls for immediate lifting of illegal US blockade of Cuba

From: Morning Star.

UNITE has condemned US interference in Cuba and called for Washington’s illegal blockade to be “immediately and unconditionally” lifted.

The union declared its view that recent disturbances on the socialist island have their roots in the inhumane blockade, which is leaving causing shortages of food, power and medicine.

Unite general secretary Len McCluskey accused US President Joe Biden of failing to alleviate the acute problems that the Caribbean country faced during the presidency of his predecessor Donald Trump.

He said: “The simplest measure President Biden could take to avert any crisis in Cuba would be to lift the blockade.

“The Cubans already possess the necessary infrastructure to ensure that materials and medicines get to where they are most needed.

“Talk of a ‘humanitarian corridor’ is cover for US intervention; from Guatemala in 1954 through to Chile in 1973 and elsewhere more recently, US intervention in Latin America has never been beneficial for working people.

“We stand with the Cuban unions, which have said: ‘What Cuba needs is for the blockade to be eliminated.’

“Unite calls on President Biden to immediately and unconditionally lift the illegal blockade.”
