By the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity
The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity rejects the decision of the Trump administration to include Cuba as a “state sponsor of terrorism”.
The inclusion of Cuba once again on the list of state sponsors of terrorism, that includes Syria, Iran and North Korea who are also unjustly included, is intended to hinder President Joe Biden from rebuilding the ties with Cuba initiated by the Obama’s administration.
This cynical maneuver of hate by Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is to extract one more dose of punishment against the heroic people of Cuba on their way out the door. The classification of Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism is one of the last acts of the Trump administration to further intensify the economic war against Cuba, which has intensified throughout his miserable four years in office.
The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity strongly condemns this dirty and cruel maneuver against a country that has been the victim of more than 60 years of terrorist actions carried out by 12 successive US administrations against a people that has suffered from spy infiltrations, pirate attacks by air and sea, hijacking of planes and boats, biological warfare, media attacks and much more.
The United States has encouraged illegal immigration, elaborate plans have been made to assassinate its main leaders, sabotage and terrorist acts have been carried out, causing considerable material damage and the death of 3,478 women, men and children while another 2,099 Cubans have been disabled by such attacks.
The International Committee requests that President Joe Biden review and remove Cuba from a list on which it should never have been included.
We ask all congressmen, senators, social movements, organizations and people of good will, lovers of peace, both in the United States and throughout the world to ask President Biden to eliminate the hostile policy against Cuba and give priority to bringing together two peoples who deserve to live in peace.
