Cuba in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas

Message from President Miguel Díaz-Canel to the Summit of the Peoples

Dear Manolo; comrades who are participating in the Summit of the Peoples;

I was not wrong when I said that I will not be in the Summit of the Americas but the voice of Cuba certainly will.

You are our voice.  The Revolution has always had it very clear: wherever governments deprive us from our voice, peoples will be there to represent us, to speak on our behalf.

US Blockade of Cuba Condemned at Summit of the Americas

Havana, June 9,2022.- Representatives of several countries attending the 9th Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles denounced the over-60-year US economic, commercial, and financial blockade against Cuba.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said that that it’s unbelievable that in our times we keep witnessing blockades, embargos and sanctions against countries of this region, even under the pandemic, which runs against international law.


Comrades all;

Allow me to begin with words that were told more than one century ago:

When a strong nation wants to fight a battle with another, it demands allegiance and service from those nations dependent upon it. The first thing a nation does to dominate another is to separate it from other nations.”

This was written by Jose Marti 130 years ago after attending the Monetary Conference, a feast purposely designed by a burgeoning United States for the young republics of Our America.

“Summit of the Americas: Imperialist domination and exclusion”.

Statement by the Revolutionary Government

Havana, June 6th, 2022.- The US Government, abusing its privilege of being the host country, decided at a very early stage to exclude Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua from the 9th Summit of the Americas to be held in the city of Los Angeles this month of June.  It has refused to attend to the just claims of many governments to change that discriminatory and unacceptable stand.
