U.S. citizens calls for Cuba’s exclusion from terrorist list

Washington, Jun 18 (Prensa Latina) Non-governmental and solidarity organizations in the United States reiterated their demand to exclude Cuba from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, in which it remains arbitrarily under the government of Joe Biden.

The Interfaith Foundation for Community Organization IFCO-Pastors for Peace, the Cuba Sí Coalition of New York/New Jersey, and the December 12th Movement agreed in recent public statements on the harm caused to the Cuban people by such a provision amid an intensified blockade. They also agreed that the U.S. government has no moral or legal capacity to include Cuba in this false list when the Caribbean nation has been the recipient for decades of direct and indirect terrorist attacks by violent individuals based or trained in the United States. Last May 15, the State Department announced that Cuba was not included in its 2023 report of “countries that do not fully cooperate in the fight against terrorism,” IFCO recalled, noting that the document was dutifully sent to the federal Congress.

But it clarified that the removal of Cuba from this list “initially appears to be a retreat by the U.S. government from its aggressive policy of suffocating Cuba throughout its 64-year history of sanctions and blockade.”
