The World Said Enough!

The World Said Enough!

In yesterday's historic meeting at the United Nations, almost all nations joined their voices to the Cuban claim, saying Enough! to the blockade imposed by the U.S. government on our country more than sixty years ago.

On behalf of Cuba, "of its dignified and generous people who resist and advance heroically," Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla's voice resonated convincingly, filled with reasons and arguments that won the votes in favor of 184 nations - only the votes of the USA and Israel against, and three abstentions.

The fact that the UN General Assembly has approved by an overwhelming majority the resolution «The Necessity of Ending the E0conomic, Commercial, and Financial Blockade Imposed by the United States of America against Cuba», caused the Cuban President to ratify via twitter: “The world is with Cuba”.

Undoubtedly, the eyes of this planet are gradually opening, as this last vote, and also the previous ones, has proven so, evidencing once again how obsolete is the position of the United States, whose immorality and impudence was once again exposed in the words of his representative, who, before those gathered yesterday, dared to assure that the blockade is a policy that "favors the Cuban people."

An insult to common sense smelled that "explanation" of the U.S. official full of omissions and half-truths, but the votes of the 184 countries were the best and largest barrier rising against that virus of shamelessness, and, above all, against the other virus, that of the blockade, which also "suffocates and kills".
