We former students of Cuba and graduates thereof in South Africa hereby condemn the injustice, inhumane and diabolic economic blockade against the peaceful Republic of Cuba which has been rejected many times by almost all countries except two in the United Nation’s Assembly as from 1992. We condemn the aggression that has been increased and shown by the United States government under President Joe Biden who has added more economic sanctions against the peaceful and sovereign Republic of Cuba to those re-imposed by Donald Trump after President Barrack Obama had removed part thereof. The USA President and its Congress must put an end to all these UN annual votes that are absolutely unfair to the government of Cuba and its People. It is very much unfair to Cuba more especially during these difficult times of the devastating Covid-19 epidemic to be faced with this USA aggression which is carried by the USA agents within and outside the country.
We also would like to appreciate the good work being done by Cuba and its people of great support being offered to many countries by educating their youth, sending health professionals and other specialists in different fields like hydrology, education, sports, military, civil and architectural engineering, etc. It should also be recognised that Cuba managed to develop its own vaccines for its people and managed to vaccinate 79% of its population and currently being one of the first countries in vaccinating small children. We congratulate Cuba for reopening schools again and reopening borders and therefore allowing international travellers to arrive again at this beautiful Island of Humanity. All these above achievements by a small country being a neighbour to this “giant imperialist USA” does not go well as it shows the power and potential of Socialism of which the capitalist USA deeply hates. All these human gestures to all people of the World including the Henry Reeve Medical Brigade humanitarian assistance to different Nations will always be a sore of pain to those who hate humanity and Solidarity of Nations.
We say to the USA President and their Congress that evilness never prevails like in the case of the racist apartheid system that brutally killed and tortured many of us, that your evil intentions of suppressing Cuba and subjecting it during these difficult times to brutality at its best will not last long as your intentions of killing children and the old aged will be severely punished by God the Almighty with a mighty sword of defence to humanity, justice and Love. This diabolic economic blockade of yours cannot at any stage be justified except to be removed with immediate effect. We have noted your aggressiveness in increasing the intensity of using social media to internally attack Cuba with your evil agents in Miami and the World at large and hence we also intent to maximise our efforts in defending the Socialist Cuban Revolution at all costs and increase campaigns against the USA counterrevolutionary policies. The recent negative manifestations in Cuba against the sovereign state thereof are indicative of the USA government agents’ bad intentions of instigating social-economic instability and racial tension in this peaceful Caribbean Island.
We thank Cuba once more for the education that Cuba offered us including students from many other countries and different continents. We are also thankful of the assistance that Cuba offered to send many doctors and health professionals to come to our country South Africa. Cuba has sent health professionals to the West of Africa during the ebola outbreak and also sent health professionals to Brazil and Latin American countries during the ziga viras outbreak. Included to those noble gestures that Cuba participated in them are sending health professionals also to Pakistan and Haiti to treat victims of massive earthquakes there. Continue reading
