Quote of the Week: On the Cuban Embargo

Monday, November 24, 2014
There's no embargo against Venezuela and we see how every day the human rights of Venezuelans are being violated. There's no embargo against China and we see how millions live in slave-like conditions. There's no chance that lifting the embargo towards Cuba would guarantee respect for our rights. The embargo is the only genuine international act of solidarity with the Cuban people. The little changes that are taking place in Cuba are due to the pressure of the embargo and the persistence of the opposition.
