Paris, Sep 17 – The solidarity organization ”Cuba Si France” turned its stand at the L”Humanite Festival into a platform to reject the blockade imposed by the United States on the Caribbean island, which is still in force today.
‘Many people are confused and think that the blockade ended. But we should clarify that this hostile policy is not only maintained, but tightened, and creates every day more difficulties for the economic development of the island,’ the French lawmaker Andres Chassaigne said.
The president of the association, Charlie Bouhana, reaffirmed the support for the Cuban people in their fight against the blockade.
He stated that despite the difficulties caused by Washington’s policy, ‘Cuba continues to write its own history,’ in which ‘the strength of the Revolution has allowed it to move forward.’
During the ceremony, attended by a large audience, the constitutional reform under debate in Cuba was also analyzed.
The event was part of many activities dedicated to Cuba at the L’Humanite Festival, which is considered the main meeting of progressive forces in France.
The festival began on Friday, September 14, with participation of more than 600,000 visitors.(Prensa Latina)
