The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) calls on its members and friends to demand the Biden Administration not interfere in the internal affairs of Cuba and live up to its pledge to “reset” relations that must include an end to the blockade.
We urgently ask our members and friends to contact the State Department, the White House, Senators, and Congresspersons and tell them “Hands off Cuba!
The majority of our country who desire peace and an end to the decades-long strangulation of the Cuban people and economy must make their voices heard.
We stand firmly in solidarity with the Communist Party (PCC) and the people of Cuba against U.S. imperialist interference.
For more than half of a century, the country of Cuba has been the target of U.S. ruling class resentment and ire. Despite never having threatened or attacked the U.S., Cuba has met with resistance at every turn for over 60 years.
Despite all the immense difficulties, Cuba has maintained its efforts to build socialism, led by its Communist Party and working class. They have created a medical system that is the envy of the world, provided free education for all its citizens, and ended homelessness. Cuba is an example to the world of what the working class can achieve.
It is for these reasons, chief among them medical solidarity, that they have been nominated to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
Yet U.S. imperialism never relents and now is trying to plant an anti-communist movement in the middle of Cuban society. In addition, members of Congress like Rep. Anthony Sabatini are openly calling for the toppling of the Cuban government and the execution of government members.
Despite the best efforts of the forces of reaction, the Cuban people stand strong. We see the videos of Cuban people flooding the streets in support of the government and the revolution.
The best solidarity we can build is to end the blockade, a position now supported by tens of millions in this country as represented by resolutions passed by city councils, trade unions, school boards, churches, and others.
One specific way to support is to assist the Syringes4Cuba campaign.
The time to act is now! Every effort to build broad public support helps wherever you are, be it the city, rural communities, or suburbs.
COMMUNIST PARTY USA The Communist Party USA is a working class organization founded in 1919 in Chicago, IL. The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign. But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit — socialism. We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms.
