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.”

“People may die but never do their ideas”

pcc cubaCuba yesterday highlighted the significance of the Great October Socialist Revolution, after a floral wreath-laying ceremony at Vladimir Ilyich Lenin’s Mausoleum and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in this capital.

In the world that we want and we will build, we must all remember that moment of the Revolution, stated José Ramón Balaguer, a member of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) Central Committee Secretariat and head of its International Relations Department.

wfdyFor once more the U.N. General Assembly, held yesterday on November 1, 2017, has voted a special Resolution for the lifting of the U.S. blockade on Cuba. The total number of 191 countries voted in favor of the Resolution, while only the United States of America and their puppet Israel were the only countries to vote against the resolution.

The blockade against Cuba is a policy, which has been imposed for over 50 years by the U.S.A. and constitutes a flagrant, massive, and systematic violation of the human rights of the Cuban people. This imperialist policy of blockade is an act of genocide, which intends to economically strangle the Cuban people and force their surrender. The human damage produced by the implementation of this policy is incalculable. It constitutes clearly an obstacle to Cuba's economic and social development.
