It is a book that takes sides with the Cuban people in their struggle against a criminal blockade and at the same time has an educational value, because many people still think that Washington’s siege no longer exists, the president of the France-Cuba Friendship Group of the National Assembly commented in an interview with Prensa Latina.
According to the deputy for the central department of Puy-de-Dôme, the text shows that contrary to what not a few believe, the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed to Cuba more than six decades ago has been intensified, after the measures adopted by Donald Trump (2017-2021), maintained by his successor in the White House, Joseph Biden.
It is a war without weapons, an unspeakable war of U.S. imperialism against the Cuban Revolution, and above all against a people to colossally attack its economic development, he warned.
Chassaigne stressed that his book also addresses the extraterritorial component of the blockade, expressed through laws and executive decisions with an impact on banks, companies and citizens of Europe and other continents.
That is why we must fight it and not only through the vote of resolutions at the UN, therefore, I recognize initiatives such as the call to hold in November in Brussels an international tribunal to denounce and condemn the U.S. policy towards Cuba, the president of the Group of the Democratic and Republican Left in the French National Assembly stressed.
The book “Cuba a star in the night, the struggle of the Cuban people against a criminal blockade” will be presented at La fête de l’Humanité, traditional political-cultural festival that will have its 2023 edition from September 15 to 17 in the Paris Region.
