Resounding UN Rejection of U.S. Economic Blockade of Cuba Print E-mail

For the 23rd consecutive time the world massively rejected the  U.S. economic war against the people of Cuba. On October 28, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly condemned the U.S. economic blockade of that island nation by resoundingly voting in favour of the resolution, "Necessity of Ending the Economic, Commercial and Financial Embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba."  Mirroring the undiminished global outrage, the vote of the 193 UN member countries was 188 in support of Cuba, with only 2 voting in support of Washington: the United States and Israel. Three countries (Palau, Marshall Islands and Micronesia) abstained. Since 1992,  the international community has repudiated the ongoing economic aggression of the United States against the people of Cuba in these annual votes in the UN. This rejection of Washington’s diktat, graphically underscores the isolation of the empire in world public opinion.

Cuba's Temerity - The Tomakjian Case Print E-mail

-Statement by the Canadian Network On Cuba, October 2nd , 2014 -
 
Much bile has been spilled in the Canadian media condemning Cuba regarding the conviction and sentencing of Toronto businessman Cy Tokmakjian and two of his executives (Claudio Vetere and Marco Puche) for corruption, bribery and suborning of Cuban officials, Under Cuba law they were convicted of acts “that are contrary to the principles and ethics that should characterize commercial activity, and contravene the Cuban judicial order.” Of course, it is within the legitimate purview of anyone to question the correctness of the outcome of any judicial process, however, some other motives and motifs appear to be guiding the Globe & Mail, CBC, Toronto Sun, Financial Post, CTV and others. While articles in the monopoly media denounce the conviction on the basis of “lack of due process” and “unfairness”, this is an uninformed statement since in fact the trial went to great lengths to ensure that everything was done by the book. Most importantly, however, is that none of the media who accuse Cuba of lack of due process even attempt to address the question of whether Tomakjian actually engaged in corrupt activities.
