Argentine organization condemns inclusion of Cuba in US report

Buenos Aires, Jun 28 (Prensa Latina) The Union of Cuban Residents in Argentina (URCA) joined the voices that condemn the arbitrary inclusion of Cuba in a report on human trafficking published by the US State Department.

The organization said in a statement that the decision to keep Cuba in the report “is one more way to punish the Cuban people and government for not bowing to imperial designs.” “They use contradictory and not credible arguments to distort and defame the work of Cuban medical collaboration for decades, in more than a hundred countries,” the URCA dispatch says.

“The United States government knows very well that Cuba restored health, saved lives, and restored vision to millions of people around the world. The truth that Washington hides is that this list, like all the others, has a marked political objective,” the organization adds.

The URCA also considers that these reports “only demonstrate the frustrations of the empire in not being able to surrender the Cuban people, even with the most genocidal, anti-human, and cruel policies used to date.”

The URCA went on to speak out against the economic, commercial, and financial war that the United States government is waging against Cuba. “Since January 1st, 1959, Cuba freed itself from the chains that tied it to imperial power and, as a free and sovereign country, it has the right to choose its own destiny,” the statement indicates.
