191 países votan en la ONU en contra del bloqueo estadounidense: a favor EE.UU e Israel

En lo que hasta ahora significa la mayor derrota de la política de hostilidad de los gobiernos de EE.UU. materializada, entre otras agresiones, en el bloqueo comercial, financiero y económico que el país norteño impone a Cuba unilateralmente desde 1962, 191 países condenaron hoy en la Naciones Unidas este vetigio de la Guerra Fría que utiliza EE.UU para castigar al pueblo cubano por atreverse a construir un modelo socio-económico diferente, mientras votaron a favor del bloqueo los de siempre, EE.UU. e Israel.

Open letter to Canada's Foreign Minister

The Association of Cubans in Toronto “Juan Gualberto Gómez”

October 24, 2015
Honorable Rob Nicholson
Minister of Foreign Affairs
125 Sussex Drive
Ottawa, Ontario
K1A 0G2

Dear Sir:

On October 27th, 2015, and for the 23rd time, Cuba will denounce at the United Nations the 53 year old economic and financial blockade imposed on the island on 1962 by the United States of America. The world will be watching again as their representatives declare their repulsion to this policy.

The Association of Cubans in Toronto “Juan Gualberto Gómez” is very proud that the Canadian Government has traditionally voted against this obsolete and failed attempt of the U.S. to resolve its diferendo with Cuba by punishing its people, which has suffered severely and has been deprived of its right to a better quality of life for 53 years now; Canada's vote against the blockade favors engagement, dialogue and negotiation between the parties involved. As Cuban-Canadians, we hope that again this time, this our second homeland, will honor once more its tradition of justice and respect for international laws.

We are also proud of the role that Canada played in the process that lead to the historical announcements made on December 17th by both the presidents of Cuba and the United States of America on reestablishing diplomatic relations after more than a century of hostility.

The euphemistically called “embargo”, still implemented in full force, has negatively affected the most vulnerable sectors of Cuban society. The unparalleled cruelty of denying patients and their relatives the necessary medicine for a particular treatment, or the detrimental effect that the blockade as punishment has had on the essential food segment, speak by themselves; and this is just to mention two examples of the adversity the people of Cuba endures day by day due to this obsolete relic of the Cold War era.
