Indian unions reiterate solidarity with Cuba and denounce blockade

New Delhi, July 26 (Prensa Latina) Several Indian unions reiterated their support for the Cuban Revolution today while condemning the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on the Caribbean island by the United States for more than 50 years.

Representatives of various guilds visited the Cuban embassy on the occasion of National Rebellion Day, which every July 26 celebrates the anniversary of the attacks on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes garrisons in 1953, an action that reinitiated the struggle process in the Largest of the Antilles.

We reiterate our solidarity with the heroic Cuban people and demand the end of the criminal blockade of Washington, said a communiqué signed, among others, by the Bank Employees Association of India, the All India Congress of Trade Unions and the United Central of Trade Unions From All India.

In this regard, they remember that this punitive measure generates a unanimous rejection in all international forums, including the United Nations.

The guilds also condemned "the illegitimate occupation of the Guantanamo Bay" by the northern nation for more than a century and demanded its return to Cuba.

The text celebrated the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between Havana and Washington, as well as some measures ordered by the previous administration of Barack Obama.

However, a few days ago in a provocative and unacceptable statement, President Donald Trump reversed many of those initiatives in a further sample of attempts to silence one of the voices that resist the new world order, notes the note. (PL/Embacuba India)
