The Juan Gualberto Gómez Association, the Canadian Network of Solidarity with Cuba, the Puentes de Amor Project and other groups are preparing initiatives against the unilateral blockade in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Victoria and also in this capital.
In this way, they will join people from other cities in the world who will demand this weekend the abolition of the economic sanctions that are stifling the Cuban people.
These initiatives will take place a few days before the United Nations General Assembly vote on a new report calling on the international community to end the blockade of the largest island of the Antilles.
In connection with this fact, the Canadian Network for Solidarity with Cuba has invited to participate from June 22 to 23 in a virtual meeting for 24 continuous hours with speakers, cultural performances and a live broadcast of what will happen at the United Nations.
In numbers, the blockade of Washington caused losses to the Caribbean nation between April 2019 and December 2020 of more than nine billion dollars, but the human damage, suffering and shortages for families are incalculable, said the island’s foreign minister, Bruno Rodriguez.
US President Joe Biden and other White House officials have emphasized that Cuba is not a priority issue for their government, and despite campaign promises, they remain unaffected by the 243 punitive measures imposed by former President, Donald Trump.
