Europe for Cuba denounces blockade against Cuba

Paris, Jan 29 (Prensa Latina) The Europe for Cuba channel reiterated on Monday its condemnation of the US blockade against Cuba and highlighted the measures agreed to face it during its second international solidarity meeting with the island.

A few days before another anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 3447, with which then US President John F. Kennedy put the blockade into effect on February 7, 1962, the platform described the economic, commercial, and financial siege as criminal, whose application began since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution on January 1, 1959.

About 100 delegates from about 20 countries participated in the Bilbao Forum over the weekend, where the channel and the guests advocated for the unity of action of the European Movement of Solidarity with Cuba and agreed to strengthen communication to denounce Washington’s policy and its consequences and to promote cooperation projects.

They scheduled a meeting with reporters in April and the beginning of the platform’s broadcasts in Arabic, in addition to the usual broadcasting in Spanish and Russian.

They also announced the celebration of the 3rd International Meeting of Europe for Cuba in 2025, following the one held in Seville in 2023 and the one recently held in Bilbao.

The delegates also condemned Cuba’s inclusion in the US unilateral list of countries that sponsor terrorism.

The Bilbao meeting also included expressions of support for other countries and peoples targeted by aggression, including Venezuela and Palestine.
