Cuban PM expresses gratitude for world solidarity against US blockade

Cuba-solidaridad-bloqueo
Havana, Aug 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero on Sunday expressed gratitude for the examples of solidarity for his country from several regions of the world, and the expressions against the United States economic, commercial and financial blockade.

On his Twitter account, the head of Government highlighted the role played by the Bridges of Love initiative, one of the organizers of the rallies on Sunday, which includes Miami and 20 other cities in the United States, as well as several cities globally.

According to the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Cuban residents abroad and members of Cuban solidarity groups are holding several activities on Sunday to demand the lifting of Washington’s blockade.

In Västerås, Switzerland, members of the Svensk Kubanska group led the support and rejected the White House’s policy on Cuba, described as illegal, according to the United Nations statutes.

“We are going to demonstrate on August 28 that those who love and found are more than those who hate and undo,” activist Carlos Lazo, leader of Bridges of Love, said in a video posted on Twitter on Saturday.

After more than six decades of implementation, the US economic blockade has been condemned by the international community, which has been in favor of its lifting at the United Nations every year.

This hostile policy limits the Cuban population’s access to essential products such as medicines and food, and according to Cuban authorities, it is the main obstacle to the country’s development.
