Pretria, January 19, 2021.- On behalf of the Cuban Residents in South Africa it is make this declaration, to unite our voices to many others across the world and many organizations that have expressed their public disapproval and condemnation of the cruel economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed by the United States of America for many years.
Pretoria, January 13, 2021.- The South African Communist Party (SACP) condemns in the strongest terms possible the announcement made by the United States imperialist regime categorising Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism. This has been done as a smokescreen for the tightening of the unilateral and arbitrary blockade of Cuba, a repeated violation of international law which has been, time and again, overwhelmingly condemned by the United Nations and all peaceful people around the world.
Pretoria, January 8, 2021.- We congratulate the members of the African National Congress on the occasion of the 109 Anniversary of its foundation.
In the present international context, characterized by a multi-dimensional crisis worsened by the COVID-19, we should continue strengthening the historical bonds of cooperation, brotherhood and solidarity that unite us and were handed over to us by Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, Oliver Tambo and Nelson Mandela.
