Washington, October 27. Activist Carlos Lajo announced today that more than a hundred solidarity organizations in the United States will hold a march in New York City next Saturday to demand an end to the blockade against Cuba.
It is intended to support a vote at the United Nations on a draft resolution that Cuba would present on the need to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on the island by the United States, explained Lazo, coordinator of the Puentes de Amor movement.
Once again, most countries in the world will ask the United Nations to end this unilateral siege that has been going on for more than six decades, Lazzo reported, who was quoted by Prensa Latina.
The Cuban-American professor living in downtown Seattle, Washington, said that in addition to Puentes d’Amor, Code Pink and The People’s Forum, among other groups, would participate in the solidarity event.
Representatives of the Cuban expatriate community, as well as North Americans, will converge next Saturday in the so-called “Big Apple”, from Times Square in Manhattan to the United Nations headquarters, to hold a march on the same New York Island, he said.
The action is part of a series of events planned during the week to draw attention to the need to lift the blockade against Cuba, with Lazo insisting that the next Sunday, as is customary every month, would be a Miami caravan, in solidarity with the same. purpose.
He said Cubans and non-Cubans would join caravans for the end of the blockade, which would take place for the first time in the city of Jacksonville (Northeast Florida).
The United Nations General Assembly on June 23, 2021, ruled strongly against this policy of suffocation and called for an end to these unilateral coercive measures.
Last year, a resolution rejecting the blockade against Cuba received 184 votes in favour, two (the United States and Israel) and three against the boycott (Colombia, Brazil and Ukraine).
The claim for the largest island of the Antilles in the largest multilateral organization this year will be heard for the thirtieth time on November 2 and 3.
