From this Cuba with such solidarity, the first free territory in the Americas, recognizing the heroic resistance of its people and the victories attained over sixty years of Revolution, we have shared our struggles and hopes, we the 1332 representatives of 789 social and people’s movement organizations, of solidarity movements, networks, platforms and regional and global organizations, of political parties, parliamentarians, religious groups and intellectuals from 86 countries.
The Government of the United States continues its hostility against Cuba, with increased aggressiveness in recent months. The tightening of the blockade, its marked extraterritorial nature, application of the Helms-Burton Act and other mechanisms and additional sanctions constitute the principal obstacle for the socio-economic development of the Cuban nation, an attack on its sovereignty and flagrant violation of the principles of International Law.
