      Support in the US To End The Blockade

      A call for the lifting of the criminal blockade against Cuba was made by the United States-Cuba International Normalization Conference, which met in New York, with representatives of solidarity organizations with the Island, labor movements and participants from the United States, Canada, Colombia and South Africa.

      The meeting promoted actions of concerted solidarity and projection of work to condemn the sanctions against the Cuban Revolution, mainly those that intensify the economic, commercial and financial siege, such as the more than 243 measures under the mandate of President Donald Trump and that his successor Joe Biden maintains.

      Messages from organizations from several countries arrived at the event demanding the cessation of hostilities against Cuba, and social networks were activated with greetings to the event.

      At its inauguration, the permanent representative of Cuba to the UN, Pedro Luis Pedroso, thanked the countless displays of sensitivity and humanism towards the Cuban people. He invited the attendees to exchange on the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and the advancement of women.

      Teresa Amarelle Boué, member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party and general secretary of the Federation of Cuban Women, as well as other members of that organization, intervened in the panel on issues of the advancement of women and gender parity. There he was updated on the analysis process of the new Family Code in all the communities of Cuba and the National Program for the Advancement of Women.

      The participants praised the information received and commented on the history of successive attacks by the White House tenants against the Cuban family, with which they have sought to overthrow the Revolution.
