Trump: Hands off Cuba!
The US government decided to classify Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism ... All of us, all of humanity in every corner of the planet a week ago had the opportunity to "admire" the ... democracy of the US system on Capitol Hill ... our great "Admiration" and "affection"!
We reject the Trump administration's decision that means more discrimination and sanctions against the Cuban people.
Cuba not only does not support terrorism, but it is also the victim of dozens of attacks and terrorist actions, orchestrated and directed by US agencies and governments that have caused the death of 3,478 Cuban citizens and the injuries of another 2,099 more.
We demand that this unacceptable decision be annulled immediately. We are on the side of Cuba.
We call on all workers to remember, judge and compare: on the one hand, Washington's "modern democracy", the images in US hospitals and the highest number of deaths from the pandemic; on the other hand, the brigades of Cuban doctors and health personnel who have been in the front line of the battle against the coronavirus in more than 32 countries of the world.
One can judge and compare.
We are proud to be on the side of Cuba.
