This is the time to end once and for all the U.S. unilateral blockade against Cuba

Remembering Fidel Castro; A Global Revolutionary

No one can look back over 20th and 21st century history, without studying the work and ideas of this Cuban who wrote a small Caribbean island into the pages of “true global history,” as told by the people

By Sergio Alejandro Gómez on August 12, 2016

cuba-fidelYou can learn as much about a man from his critics as you can from his admirers. Henry Kissinger, U.S. secretary of state under Nixon, described Fidel in his memoirs as perhaps the most genuine revolutionary leader in power at that time.

The former Secretary of State and advisor to various U.S. Presidents was referring to 1975 when – to the surprise of the U.S. – Cuba lent its support to the Angolan independence struggle. In the Cold War geopolitics of the time, the Soviets were opposed to direct involvement, while Washington blatantly supported the racist apartheid regime in South Africa.

Viva Fidel! Long Live the Cuban Revolution!

Hasta Siempre Querido Comandante!With deep sorrow we have learned of the death of the Heroic Leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, at 10:29 pm on Friday November 25 in Havana.

He was the greatest revolutionary, the guerrilla fighter of our time, the most beloved who taught us by example throughout his extraordinary life that “nothing is impossible for those who fight”.

We will have to continue the struggle without him but the best way to honor his memory is to renew our commitment and pledge to defend his principles and the legacy that Fidel leaves to all mankind.

Viva Fidel! Long Live the Cuban Revolution!

Message from ICAP on United Nations Vote

Dear all,

culftexvyaelipgWith 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.

The World Against the Blockade

un-voteFor 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.
