End the U.S. Blockade on Cuba NOW!

Monthly Picket Action to End the U.S. Blockade on Cuba!

SUNDAY JANUARY 17
4pm-5pm
U.S. Consulate
1075 W. Pender, Downtown Vancouver

Since the announcement of re-establishing of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the Unites States, we witnessed a number of steps towards “normalizing” relations. The U.S. was forced to take Cuba off its “State sponsor of terror” list, the Cuban flag flies proudly at the newly re-opened Cuban embassy in Washington DC and there has been the loosening of some trade and travel restrictions. However the U.S. Cuba relationship are still far from “normal”, the U.S. government still maintains its cruel and unjust blockade against Cuba and its illegal occupation of Guantánamo Bay.

As peace loving people in Canada we must stand with people of Cuba and reinforce our organizing and actions against the U.S. blockade on Cuba and to return Guantanamo to Cuba. Join us this January 17th in front of the U.S. consulate in Vancouver as we continue our struggle in the New Year to demand:

  • END THE BLOCKADE ON CUBA NOW!
  • RETURN GUANTANAMO TO CUBA NOW!
  • US GOVERNMENT STOP THE CAMPAIGN OF ‘REGIME CHANGE’ IN CUBA AND IMMEDIATELY STOP INTERFERING IN CUBA’S SOVEREIGNTY AND SELF-DETERMINATION!

Protest at U.S. Embassy:  End the illegal U.S. blockade against Cuba, return the occupied territory in Guantanamo and abolish all unjust U.S. laws targeting Cuba!
SUNDAY JANUARY 17
1pm
U.S. Embassy
490 Sussex Drive, Ottawa
 
It has been one year since the US announced that it would abandon its bankrupt policy of trying to isolate Cuba internationally. This victory of the Cuban people was the result of the principled and consistent position taken by the Cuban government in defending their nation building project based on their own resources and initiative. This led to the release of the Cuban five heroes, the removal of Cuba from the list of terrorist countries which was totally unjustified, as well as the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
 
While Cuba is doing its part in working towards the normalization of relations with the US, President Raul Castro has rightly pointed out that the unjust and vicious economic blockade against Cuba which has been in place for more than fifty years must be lifted. As long as the U.S. economic war against Cuba continues, the US objective of negating and extinguishing Cuba’s right to self-determination and independence must be opposed in solidarity with the right of the Cuban people to determine their own future.

Ottawa Cuba Connections is proposing to establish monthly pickets at the US Embassy in Ottawa starting on December 17, 2015, to demand that the US immediately end its blockade of Cuba and stop interfering in Cuba's domestic affairs.

Please join us at the US Embassy on Sussex Drive on January 17, 2016 at 1 pm and stand in solidarity with the Cuban government and people for their democratic right to live in peace and without foreign interference of any kind.

Monthly Picket Action to End the U.S. Blockade on Cuba!

THURSDAY December 17 - 4pm-5pm

1075 W. Pender, Downtown Vancouver

On December 17, 2014 a tremendous shout of joy was heard in the streets of downtown Vancouver as the Free the Cuban 5 Committee – Vancouver gathered in front of the U.S. consulate in Vancouver for the 110th, and final, picket action for the Cuban 5; this time to celebrate the historic victory of the return of the 5 Heroes to the Cuba, after over 16 years of unjust imprisonment in the United States.

On that morning of December 17, the governments of Cuba and the United States announced the re-establishing of diplomatic relations between the two countries. A year after this important announcement, the criminal and illegal U.S. blockade remains in full force. On October 27, 2015, the world voted overwhelmingly, 191 countries to 2, in favour of Cuba’s resolution demanding an end to the criminal and illegal blockade of Cuba by the United States. Only the U.S. and Israel voted against the resolution, this clearly showed the hypocrisy of the U.S. government talk about normalizing relations with Cuba while maintaining the cruel and inhumane blockade.

Join Friends of Cuba Against the U.S. Blockade – Vancouver this December 17th in front of the U.S. consulate in Vancouver as we mark one year after the historic victory of the freedom of the Cuban 5 Heroes and as we continue our struggle to demand:

  • END THE BLOCKADE ON CUBA NOW!
  • RETURN GUANTANAMO TO CUBA NOW!
  • US GOVERNMENT STOP THE CAMPAIGN OF ‘REGIME CHANGE’ IN CUBA AND IMMEDIATELY STOP INTERFERING IN CUBA’S SOVEREIGNTY AND SELF-DETERMINATION!

THURSDAY December 17 - 4pm

On the one year anniversary of the historic release of the Cuban 5 and the beginning of normalization of relations between Cuba and the U.S. protests are taking place in cities across Canada and around the world to demand the U.S. end its hostilities against the Cuban people, their sovereignty and economic and political system. Cuba has stood by its principles and insists on an end to U.S. attacks on the Cuban people and recognition of Cuban sovereignty for normalization to proceed. The world's people are standing by Cuba and demanding the same just as Cuba has been an example of internationalism and defence of humanity and social progress.
