The recent resolution of the European Parliament (EP) which is demanding new sanctions
against the heroic people of Cuba and its leadership constitutes a provocation against the
common sense of the vast majority of people worldwide. The European Union and its
institutions apply once more their tactics of the “carrot and the stick”, as a genuine tool of the
capital and as a true imperialist structure. The E.U. is interfering in the domestic affairs of
Cuba without any moral or legal authority. The European Parliament has no right and no
jurisdiction to judge and examine the whatsoever “performance of Human Rights” of Cuba. It
is furthermore a hypocritical act of arbitrary interference which is “whitewashing” the criminal
and inhuman blockade of the USA which is imposed for more than six decades on Cuba.
The resolution of the European Parliament denies de facto the right of the Cuban people
for access to basic goods, equipment and medicine and the right of the brave Cuban people
to determine alone its fortunes and path of development. It goes hand in hand with the
imperialist policies of the USA which is trying to strangle and asphyxiate the island of the
revolution, it actually does not hide its vicious strive for an overthrow of the Cuban Revolution.
The WPC stands firmly on the side of the Cuban people and its revolution, recognizing the
achievements for its people and the contribution to many peoples of the world in many fields.
The EU and the EP in particular, are blindly and fully tolerating the illegal occupation of the
sovereign territory of Cuba in its province Guantanamo where the USA have their Naval base
and are operating a concentration camp, all against the will of the Cuban people and its
government. This is the real violation of Human Rights in Cuba!
The WPC rejects vehemently the resolution of the European Parliament and expresses its
solidarity with the Cuban people.
Down with the blockade against Cuba!
Down with the imperialist maneuvers against Cuba!
The WPC Secretariat 17th July 2023
