The WPC rejects strongly the provocations against Cuba by the European Parliament
The recent resolution of the European Parliament (EP) which is demanding new sanctions against the heroic people of Cuba and its leadership constitutes a provocation against the common sense of the vast majority of peoples worldwide. The European Union and its institutions apply once more their tactics of the “carrot and the stick”, as a tool of finance capital and as a true imperialist structure. The E.U. is interfering in the domestic affairs of Cuba without any moral or legal authority. The European Parliament has no right and no jurisdiction whatsoever to judge the “performance of human rights” of Cuba. Furthermore, it is a hypocritical act of outside interference, while “whitewashing” the criminal and inhuman blockade which the USA has imposed for more than six decades on Cuba.
The resolution of the European Parliament denies de facto the right of the Cuban people for access to basic goods, equipment and medicine and the right of the brave Cuban people to determine alone their future path of development. It goes hand in hand with the imperialist policies of the USA which is trying to strangle and asphyxiate the island of the revolution. It actually does not hide its vicious efforts to overthrow the Cuban Revolution.
The WPC stands firmly on the side of the Cuban people and its revolution, recognizing the achievements for its people and Cuba’s humanitarian contributions to many peoples of the world in many fields (emergency relief, healthcare, literacy campaigns, etc.)
The EU and the EP in particular are blindly and fully tolerating the illegal occupation of the sovereign territory of Cuba in its province of Guantanamo where the USA have their naval base and are operating a concentration camp, all against the will of the Cuban people and its government. This is the real violation of human rights in Cuba!
The WPC rejects vehemently the resolution of the European Parliament and expresses its solidarity with the Cuban people.
Down with the blockade against Cuba!
Down with the imperialist manoeuvres against Cuba!
