pcc cubaCuba yesterday highlighted the significance of the Great October Socialist Revolution, after a floral wreath-laying ceremony at Vladimir Ilyich Lenin’s Mausoleum and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in this capital.

In the world that we want and we will build, we must all remember that moment of the Revolution, stated José Ramón Balaguer, a member of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) Central Committee Secretariat and head of its International Relations Department.

wfdyFor once more the U.N. General Assembly, held yesterday on November 1, 2017, has voted a special Resolution for the lifting of the U.S. blockade on Cuba. The total number of 191 countries voted in favor of the Resolution, while only the United States of America and their puppet Israel were the only countries to vote against the resolution.

The blockade against Cuba is a policy, which has been imposed for over 50 years by the U.S.A. and constitutes a flagrant, massive, and systematic violation of the human rights of the Cuban people. This imperialist policy of blockade is an act of genocide, which intends to economically strangle the Cuban people and force their surrender. The human damage produced by the implementation of this policy is incalculable. It constitutes clearly an obstacle to Cuba's economic and social development.

This is reflected in the Report to the United Nations General Assembly on Resolution 71/5 entitled “Necessity of Ending the Economic, Commercial, and Financial Blockade Imposed by the United States of America on Cuba,” which outlines the extensive damages suffered by the island.
