The final day of the 20th International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties started with a commemoration for Fidel Castro on the second anniversary of his loss and commemoration for all other revolutionary militants that lost their lives.

The statement of solidarity that was introduced by the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) was greatly supported by the participatory parties. 

The UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly on Thursday, November 1, to renew its long-standing call to end the US embargo against Cuba. A total of 189 UN Member States voted in favor of the resolution, with only Israel and the United States voting against it. The resolution urges all states to “refrain from promulgating and applying laws and measures” which among other things, as in the case of the embargo, interfere with the freedom of trade and navigation. There were no abstentions.

With the purpose of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against the Republic of Cuba, for more than 50 years, the international community once again raised its voice in rejection of these measures that seriously affect the Caribbean people.

This Thursday, the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, presented before the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) a resolution and report against the economic, commercial and financial blockade suffered by the Caribbean country, imposed by the Government of the United States.

The National Constituent Assembly (ANC) of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela approved a Constitutional Agreement rejecting the criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade maintained by the government of the United States against the Republic of Cuba.

The plenipotentiary Venezuelan legislative body denounced in the document that under the administration of Donald Trump not only has the blockade against the island increased in its economic, commercial and financial dimensions, but there has been a setback in the advances that had been experienced with the process of normalization initiated under the presidency of Barack Obama.

unoMadam President:

Mister Secretary-General:

It is impossible to be here, speak from this rostrum on behalf of Cuba, and not recall historic moments of the General Assembly which are also part of our dearest memories: Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Raúl Castro and the "Chancellor of Dignity", Raúl Roa, just to mention the most significant, have brought here not only the voice of our people but also the voice of other Latin American and Caribbean, African, Asian, non-aligned peoples, with whom we have shared more than half a century of struggles for a fair international order, which is still far off being attained.

Statement of the International Section of the Workers Party of Ireland

65 years ago, on 26th July 1953, a small band of courageous Cuban revolutionaries stormed the Moncada Barracks in the city of Santiago, in Eastern Cuba. Though that uprising did not overthrow the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, it was the beginning of a movement, the 26th of July Movement, that changed Cuba and reverberated around the world.

In a celebration of the event in 1960, Fidel Castro said that 26th July 1953, “was the culmination of the effort of a group of young people full of ideals that were launched towards an unequal and difficult struggle.”
