U.N. Condemns Cuba Embargo/Blockade Resoundingly in Record Vote
The world community of nations has responded today to Bush’s insolent and insulting speech of October 24 by condemning the genocidal embargo/blockade of Cuba for the 16th year in a row.
The vote today at the 62nd General Assembly of the United Nations was 184 in favor of the resolution introduced by the Republic of Cuba, four against (USA, Israel, Marshall Islands, Palau) and one abstention, Micronesia.
Those of us who live outside the island and were born there will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the courageous Cuban people as they continue to defend the island’s independence and national sovereignty against the designs of the yankee imperialists.
