With joy and pleasure we have witnessed a new moral victory at the United Nations General Assembly. Indeed a triumph that greatly depends on the engagement, commitment and support of international actors such us you, our friends in US.
Our first words to you are of THANKS; for your consistency, hard work, steadfastness and perseverance in supporting our struggle for decades. For the “stubbornness” of dreaming and realizing that another world is indeed possible and achievable. For being with us, especially in our most difficult times. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!
None of Cuba’s International gains would have been possible, if had not been for your persistence and determination in helping us out to move forwards.
Today’s result: 191 in favor, and even the change of votes (the 2 abstentions of the traditional opponents), significantly rest also on your everyday struggle, on your diligence presenting Cuba as it is to those still misinformed or misled, and the pressure the solidarity with Cuba have exerted towards the US government. We want all groups and individuals who support Cuba to feel this success as yours too.
For the first time not a single country voted against the resolution to end the genocidal policy imposed on Cuba by the U.S. government. The result of the vote – 191 in favor and two abstentions – is a triumph of the heroic resistance of the Cuban people
The United Nations General Assembly voted today, October 26, to approve the Cuban resolution expressing the need to put an end to the over 50-year economic commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the island.
A total of 191 countries voted in favor of the resolution, with none voting against, and only two abstentions, for the first time ever – the United States and Israel.
The position of the United States expressed this morning is a positive sign, stated Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez at the UN headquarters, but the truth is that the blockade persists and impacts Cuba’s current reality.
The result of the vote – 191 in favor and two abstentions – is a triumph of the heroic resistance of the Cuban people.
