Speaking to Prensa Latina on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the officialization of the US blockade against Cuba, Mr. Miller stated the British friends of Cuba will strengthen their actions to oppose such a hostile policy.
All Cubans have suffered the negative impact of such a cruel blockade aimed at stifling the Cuban economy and which is major cause of shortage of food, medicine, electricity and school supplies in the country, he asserted.
Mr. Miller recalled that in spite of promises made by Joe Biden during his presidential campaign, the US president still keep unchanged the 240 measures rolled out by Republican Donald Trump, in order to tighten the economic, financial and commercial blockade against Cuba.
He also condemned the extraterritorial impact of the blockade, which tries to prevent us from buying and sending aid to Cuba, and stressed that in spite of these pressures and threats, the CSC managed to raise £150,000 (over $200,000) to purchase medical supplies and send to Cuba so as to help its people to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are too pleased to be able to aid amid these difficult times, because despite present problems, Cuba continues to be a source of inspiration, he stressed.
