Workers Party members have taken part in the Solidarity Cavalcade through Belfast and the subsequent protest at the US Consulate in support of Revolutionary Cuba. Both events were organised by the Cuba Solidarity Forum.
In line with its long-standing position, the Workers Party unreservedly condemns the US embargo against Cuba and the illegal blockade which has been heroically resisted.
The United State imposed a trade embargo on Cuba in the early 1960s and this has been the centerpiece of its policy toward Cuba since then The blockade and embargo consists of economic sanctions aimed at isolating and destabilising the Cuba government
The unjust and criminal blockade/embargo against Cuba must immediately end. Cuba has the right to develop the full potential of its economy and its people and to engage in economic, trade and financial relations with the rest of the world.
