One of FRENADESO´s leaders Rolando Ortiz told Prensa Latina the US government accepts no having an example of dignity and solidarity such as the courageous Cuban people that have been facing up the hostile policy for over 60 years.
In spite of the blockade, Ortiz stated, Cuba shows the world´s best health and education indicators.
Cuba and its Revolution are also a beacon for its unwavering stance for free self-determination and sovereignty, for its love for the Homeland and humanity, Ortiz added.
Other Panamanian groups including the National Solidarity Coordinating Committee have also called for the end of the economic, commercial and financial blockade.
Activist Gabriela Rosas, a Chilean friend of Cuba who lives in Panama, disseminated a video on social networks in which she also urges the White House to withdraw Cuba from a list of states sponsoring terrorism.
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez recently told the National Assembly of People’s Power (ANPP) that overall effects of the U.S. blockade in more than six decades have exceed $150.4 billion.
