Cuba committed to confront U.S. blockade and better the economy

Havana, Mar 18 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel reiterated the will to confront the U.S. blockade and boost the country's economic development, and reaffirmed the government's commitment to the people.

In X social media, the president wrote: “We will not get tired of fighting against the #BloqueoGenicida(#GenocideBlockade) nor of explaining to the people the causes of the problems and the government’s efforts to push the economy forward. #JuntosSomosMásFuertes (TogetherWeAreStronger).”

Díaz-Canel denounced on Sunday unsuccessful attempts by the “infamous group of mediocre politicians and terrorists in social media” who from South Florida encouraged riots in the streets of Cuba through messages and calls for chaos, and noted that “they were left with the desire”.

The Cuban Head of State reported on Sunday that several people expressed (in the Antonio Maceo district, in the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba) their dissatisfaction with the power shortages and food distribution.

This – he said – was taken advantage of through the artificial multiplication of hate messages and subversive content disseminated on social media and anti-Cuban sites, which distorted and manipulated the claim of those citizens.

The willingness of the authorities of the Communist Party of Cuba, of the State and of the Government is to attend to the demands of our people, to listen, to talk, to explain the numerous steps being taken to improve the economic situation and come out of the crisis, always in an atmosphere of tranquility, he argued.

In his messages in X today, Díaz-Canel used a thought of the historic leader of the Revolution Fidel Castro on the autochthony and strength of the project of social transformations that the island has been promoting since 1959:

“If some where they made revolutions of playing cards and meringue, the Cuban one is not of playing cards or meringue, the Cuban one is of steel and was autochthonous, nobody brought it to us, we built it and we defende it ourselves; it is written with sacrifices, it is written with blood.”
