Speech delivered by Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic, in the act of revolutionary reaffirmation, in the esplanade of La Piragua, Havana, on July 17, 2021, "Year 63 of the Revolution."
Dear Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, leader of the Cuban Revolution;
People of Cuba, Cuban men and women;
We condemn the criminal US blockade of Cuba and the current US-funded attempts to overthrow the sovereignty and constitution of the Cuban people. Let us be clear what the US blockade is. It is not a set of sanctions. There are no international laws providing legal sanction to these unilateral coercive measures that collectively punish the Cuban people for having the fortitude to overthrow imperialism and assert their sovereignty.
Dublin, July 7, 2021. The “Walking for Cuba against the blockade” campaign has completed an important stage when it arrived in Dublin, at the International Convention Center, the current provisional seat of the Irish Parliament, after 60 kilometers of march, one kilometer for each year of existence of the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States government against the Cuban people.
