SACP condemns the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the USA against Cuba and demands its immediate and unconditional lifting
30 October 2018
The South African Communist Party (SACP) has noted with contempt the hostile and the escalation of the misleading rhetoric by the United States of America (USA) President Donald Trump directed at the people of Cuba, their democratic national sovereignty and self-determination.
The SACP condemns in the strongest terms possible the toughening of the illegal economic embargo against Cuba by the Trump regime of imperialist dictatorship during his foolish rhetoric and attack against Cuba. As the SACP we denounce the entire regime of oppression whereby one state, the USA, extends the dictatorship of its ruling class and imposes it on another country.
The SACP expresses its message of solidarity with the people of Cuba. Our Party will strengthen and deepen its and working class fraternal ties with the Cuban people. This includes intensifying the just programme for the USA to unconditionally lift its regime change political-economic embargo against Cuba.
Being a sovereign country, it is only the Cuban people who can decide on the future of Cuba. The decision of the Cuban people is clear: They will defend the Revolution and continue to struggle until the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on the country is eliminated and the territory under the occupation of the USA military base in Guantanamo is returned to its true owners, the Cuban people.
The South African Communist Party declares that it will be in solidarity with the fraternal people of Cuba and the Communist Party of Cuba.
Long live the Cuban Revolution!
Long live Socialism!
