Through a communique to which Prensa Latina had access, the signatories of the document expressed that the blockade to which the Cuban people has been subjected by the US Governments since the triumph of the Revolution must cease.

The document highlighted that despite the unjust sanctions, the Cuban Government has enviable statistics such as it has an infant mortality rate of 4.9 per 1,000 live births; a maternal mortality rate of 40 per 100,000 live births and zero percent of severe child malnutrition, something certified by UNICEF.

Likewise, the educational system in Cuba should be taken as a world example and the health system is universal.

Finally, the communique stated that the United States must respect the decision taken by the vast majority of representatives of the peoples globally in the repeated UN Assemblies, in which they have voted for eliminating the blockade.

The Foundation and the Committee convened for June 6 a Parade of Solidarity with Cuba in front of the Central Park in Bani, to which they called: ‘Bani always with Cuba, No to Blockade.’
