MASSIVE & UNPRECEDENTED VOTE IN FAVOUR OF CUBA! PDF Print E-mail

For the 24th consecutive time the world massively rejected the  U.S. economic war against the people of Cuba. On October 27, 2015, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly condemned the U.S. economic blockade of that island nation by resoundingly voting in favour of the resolution, "Necessity of Ending the Economic, Commercial and Financial Embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba."  With a vote of 191 to 2 (the largest repudiation yet, with  only the U.S. and Israel in opposition and no abstentions) the international community underscored the isolation of Washington in world public opinion and the determination to resist the  diktat of empire. As the the Nicaraguan representative stated: "The whole world is with Cuba."  The resounding UN vote represents not only a victory for Cuba but also a victory for all those who struggle to defend the inalienable and inviolable right of all peoples to self-determination and independence.
