End the U.S. blockade of Cuba now!

September 19, 2015

The hostile U.S. blockade of Cuba -- a noose around Cuba's economy and an affront to Cuba's right to freely determine its own future as a sovereign country -- has existed since 1960. While the United States has been obliged to reopen diplomatic relations with Cuba, the blockade is very far from over and U.S. regime-change objectives have been reaffirmed.

Unparalleled in history and opposed overwhelmingly 23 times in votes on United Nations General Assembly resolutions, the blockade must be ended now. There can be no "normalization" of the U.S.-Cuba relationship while the blockade is in place.

The Canadian government, which has opposed the blockade since its inception, must frequently and vigorously voice this position in its diplomatic relations with the U.S. government and in the public domain.

Assemble at Yonge-Dundas Square, March to the U.S. Consulate (across from 360 University, north of Queen)

Organized by Friends of Cuba Against the U.S. Blockade and Canadian-Cuban Friendship Association Toronto and supported by the Latin America and Caribbean Solidarity Network and Toronto Forum on Cuba.

Time: 1:00pm
Location: Yonge-Dundas Square Toronto, ON
Categories: Economic Development
