New victory for Cuba in the United Nations against US blockade

 Share This On:

(Cubaminrex) – The Cuban resolution ¨Necessity of putting an end to the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba¨ was widely supported in the United Nations this Wednesday, obtaining 191 votes in favor, 2 against (USA and Israel) and 0 abstentions.

The international community represented in the framework of the 72 session of the United Nations General Assembly strongly rejected the unjust and inhumane policy applied by the United States against Cuba for almost six decades.

Prior to the voting, representatives from many nations, as well as from the main groups and regional and international blocs denounced the illegal blockade, which disregards the international law and the United Nations Charter, considering it the main obstacle to the economic and social development of the Cuban people, whose imposition also damages the sovereignty of countries interested in maintaining normal economic, commercial and financial relations with the island.

  1. Dude- basically Castro played tough (did not bow) with the US and so sanctions were imposed on the Cuban people to make them suffer! At least now we know Castro was not the "worstest" leader- today the entire world is in awe- even animals are puzzled!

  2. Every thing Obama did or proposed, Trump opposed or is in the process of removing.
    You better get it - the man is not only a racist, a Nazi sympathizer, but a hate monger.
    If he is not removed in a hurry, he will destroy America and not only America but the
    very planet we live in. He must not be allowed to continue in that position, as president.

    • No it wasn't castro who started the blockade. It was started by Kennedy in the 60's after the missile crisis. It's an unjust embargo that has never impacted the people in power instead it has had a terrible impact on the educational system and healthcare. If you are a wealthy/powerful Cuban you can get an education or medical care anywhere you can afford to go, even here in the u.s.
      The poor, children and elderly are always the ones that pay the price

    • No the US imposed blockage because they claimed cuba was dealing with thier Communist enemies. Obama sort to make changes to allow for free trade, Trump reserved Boss Barack's decision.
