“If MEPs were really interested in the human rights of the Cuban people, they would first denounce the flagrant and systematic violation represented by the application of the blockade,” according to a statement by the organization, which welcomes European communist and socialist parties.
The Party rejected the fact that three of the last six plenary sessions of the European Parliament for tomorrow included Cuba on the agenda on cases of violations of human rights, democracy and the Rule of Law.
The resolutions approved in this regard have ignored the impact of the blockade, the Party denounced.
The Party of the European Left stressed that despite Washington’s blockade, Cuba was able to produce its own vaccines against Covid-19, with which it protected 90 percent of its population, in addition to becoming the first country on the planet with a childhood immunization scheme.
The European Union must condemn the inhuman blockade that the Cuban people have suffered for 62 years, further reinforced during the pandemic, a clear violation of human rights, they stressed.
