The secretary general of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Agreement (ALBA-TCP), Sacha Llorenti, affirmed on Thursday that the people of the world support Cuba in its struggle against the economic, commercial and financial blockade.

In his Twitter account, Llorenti published that “the peoples of the world accompany the just and legitimate condemnation of the criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade that the United States illegally imposes against Cuba”.

The support comes after the announcement of the Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez Parilla, about the presentation of the draft resolution against that genocidal policy that will take place on November 2 and 3 before the UN General Assembly.

In this regard, the foreign minister communicated that “we will present before the UNGA, for the 30th time, the draft resolution against the blockade. After more than 60 years of siege, that policy impacts today, as never before, Cuban families inside and outside the country”.

At the same time, the senior Cuban diplomat stressed that the U.S. government “persists in ignoring the demands of the international community and has tightened the blockade to unprecedented levels”.

Likewise, Rodríguez Parrilla emphasized that the blockade is a failed policy “in its objective of subverting the constitutional order in Cuba. But it causes unjustifiable shortages, pain and suffering to Cuban families”.

At the same time, the head of Cuban diplomacy pointed out that in the first 14 months of President Biden’s administration “the damages caused by the blockade amounted to 6.364 billion dollars”.

Accordingly, the foreign minister stressed that the damages caused “hinder our development and deprive the country of income that could be destined to the welfare of our people” and therefore “the blockade causes real and significant damage to the human rights of Cubans”.
