British CWU calls for the end to US blockade against Cuba

London, Apr 26 (Prensa Latina) The British Trade Unionist and General Secretary of the Communications Workers Union (CWU) Dave Ward on Tuesday called for the end to the US blockade and redoubled solidarity with Cuba.

In line with a CWU´s annual congress held in Bournemouth, a coastal city in southern England, Mr. Ward said he was born in 1959 when the Cuban revolution triumphed and the unilateral measure imposed by Washington has been in effect for over 60 years.

Mr. Ward also heaped a praise on Cubans for resisting US pressure, and reiterated CWU’s support for the international solidarity with Cuba.

Sponsored by the Campaign for Solidarity with Cuba (CSC, in Spanish) in UK, the meeting became a platform of support for the Cuban government and people, and rejection of the unilateral US blockade.

CSC´s Communication Director Natasha Hickman condemned the extraterritoriality of the economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba for over 60 years, and its tightening in recent years.

In this regard, Ms. Hickman pointed out difficulties Cuba´s biotechnology sector faced to buy necessary supplies on the international market to produce Covid-19 vaccines.
