Members and friends of the Australia-Cuba Friendship Society gathered in Brisbane today to say ‘USA, Hands Off Cuba’.
Cars, decorated with messages of solidarity and flags travelled in convoy around the streets of Highgate Hill, South Brisbane and West End convoy!
The criminal blockade must be lifted.
Without doubt, the refusal by the US government to provide relief to Cubans by lifting their 60 year old blockade is the underpinning cause of the economic hardship faced by Cubans today, which prompted the recent protests in Cuba.For more than 6 decades the US has sought to overthrow the Cuban revolution by many means, a failed invasion at the Bay of Pigs, sanctions, subversion, assassination attempts and terrorism including the bombing of tourist hotels.
Now, taking advantage of the discontent that the US itself has fomented, President Biden is cynically declaring his support for the Cuban people, and the US administration is seeking to intervene. Now is the time to stand firmly with the Cuban Revolution, and defend its many accomplishments that have been achieved in spite of the blockade.
CUBA SI! YANKEE NO!
Hands off Cuba!!
