UN: Cuba Denounces Full Implementation of US Blockade

As usual, the United States and Israel voted nay but this time isolation was complete, when Marshal Islands, Micronesia and Palau, that abstained last year, voted in favor of Cuban proposal.

This is 24th consecutive time the vote favors Cuba in its claim to have the economic, financial and commercial blockade the United States imposed on the Caribbean island nation in February 1962.

Despite having restored diplomatic relations with Cuba last July, the United States has kept this policy against Cuba, that even its President Barack Obama acknowledges it has been a failure.

  1. Greetings,
    98.9% of the international community wants the blockade lifted. If the US government really believed in democracy, the blockade never would have been imposed in the first place! This government uses words like democracy, human rights, liberties and justice for all only to exploit people.
    That is why we must protest permanently and peacefully for immediate Puerto Rico decolonization. After 34 UN resolutions asking for that, and ignored by the US government, everyone should be convinced that it doesn’t believe in JUSTICE FOR ALL!
    José
