In the final statement of the three-day forum, which ended with a meeting of solidarity at the Brandenburg Gate, participants ratified their commitment to the frontal struggle against the blockade imposed by Washington for more than 60 years, a policy they described as illegal and criminal.
We join the urgent appeal to President Joseph Biden “Let Cuba rebuild itself,” they stressed about a campaign launched in the United States in early October.
They also demanded the immediate removal of Cuba from Washington’s unilateral list of countries that allegedly sponsor terrorism and recalled that Cuba “is a nation of peace and has been a victim and never a perpetrator of this kind of action.”
ECRE’s final text also includes the demand for the return of the territory illegally occupied by the US naval base in Guantanamo, in eastern Cuba.
It also rejects the intensification of the media and communicational aggression, the attempts to discredit Cuba’s solidarity work, and the US Government’s non-compliance with the migration agreements signed by both countries.
In general, the delegates to the face-to-face event reiterated their repudiation of any aggressive measure or interference against the sovereignty of their homeland.
As discussed on Saturday, participants showed their willingness to contribute to Cuba’s socioeconomic development and the support given to their country by organizations and citizens worldwide.
“Our love for Cuba does not set conditions or does it have an expiration date,” they stated.
