Statement from the Association of Cubans residing in Ireland, “Ernesto Che Guevara”.

We are a people of peace, we strive to save lives, a terrorist act against any nation would never come from Cuba.

We Cubans will for some time remember Mr. Trump as the president who insisted on surpassing the worst of his predecessors in the effort to destroy Cuba.

We will not forget the 230 economic sanctions adopted against Cuba in the last year, we will not forgive the economic damage caused to our Homeland and the suffering to our families.

We will not forget or forgive all the immigration obstacles that have been placed so that families can communicate. All the financial chase so that we can't send a penny of help to our loved ones and friends.

We will not forget or forgive how difficult it has made it to get medicine and food to our families in Cuba, even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Can there be a crime greater than this?

Can someone who proclaims himself a democrat and a defender of human rights remain without condemning such a crime?

Aware that Cuba continues VERY ALIVE fighting against the pandemic and aggressions, Mr. Trump has insisted on launching a new offense against the Cuban people, cynically adding the name of our Island to his dirty list of State sponsors of terrorism.

Cuba does not have a military base outside its borders, Cuba does not send armies or weapons to other states.

Cuba has sent tens of thousands of doctors to save lives to all those countries that have requested our assistance.

Cuba rejects and condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, in particular State terrorism, by whoever, against whoever and wherever it is committed.

We will not forget or forgive for our 3,478 fatalities and 2,099 people with disabilities for terrorist acts committed by the United States government, or perpetrated and sponsored from the territory of that country, with the tolerance of North American authorities.

It has not escaped world public opinion that the Trump administration has tried to tie the hands of President-elect Joe Biden, in the face of any effort to normalize relations between the United States and Cuba, as can be expected from a sensible administration that acts in the true interest of his people.

What can you expect from a president who encourages an attack on the parliament of his own country?

We join in the strong condemnation of the Cuban people to this new Yankee aggression.

We trust that honest Americans will endeavor to nullify this affront.

We urge all the governments of the world and especially of Europe, where we reside with our families, all political forces, all honest and just people, to reject such a policy and instead encourage the new United States administration to work for a world of peace and cooperation, where Cubans and Americans can share a promising tomorrow for the common good.
