Diaz-Canel presides over rally of solidarity in Cuba with Palestine

Havana, Mar 2 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel leads the rally of solidarity with Palestine that brought together hundreds of people at Havana Jose Marti Anti-imperialist Tribune in front of the US Embassy.

The gathering also demanded the end of Israel’s genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza.

The mobilization is taking place in provincial capitals throughout the island, under the slogans Hands off Rafah, Stop the fire now, and End the genocide.

The rallies in Cuba as in the whole world are taking place before the announced new Israeli offensive against the city of Rafat, home to more than one million Palestinians.

President Miguel Díaz-Canel assured on Friday at the Summit of the Community of Latin Americana and Caribbean States that Cuba will never be indifferent to crime, and today thousands of Cubans are marching for peace, together with the peoples who fight for a better world.

“Enough with brutality, enough with abuse, enough with impunity,” the President stressed in a video posted on his account on the social network X.

Díaz-Canel denounced that five months ago humanity witnessed with horror a new holocaust because the Gaza Strip, the largest open-air prison in the world, is turning into an extermination camp under the criminal and incessant Israel’s bombardment.

The President also called for an end to the hypocrisy of the United States, which vetoes cease-fire resolutions in the United Nations Security Council, while his government acts as an accomplice to barbarism with its unscrupulous and anti-democratic exercise of the veto.

He denounced that Washington undermines peace and stability in the Middle East and by extension in the entire world.

In the midst of international rejection and in complicity with the United States, Israel has killed more than 30,000 Palestinians in 147 days of crimes, bombings, siege and genocide in the Gaza Strip.
