Several Swedish cities will host actions condemning the US blockade against Cuba

Stockholm, June 9.- Several Swedish cities will host activities on Saturday to reject the US blockade against Cuba, as part of a world day condemning that policy, the president of the Swedish-Cuban Solidarity Association, Zoltan Tiroler, announced today.

In statements to Prensa Latina, he specified that they circulated a letter to the organization's affiliates in the Scandinavian country, calling for actions to demand the end of the economic, commercial and financial siege imposed on the island.

Each group has the freedom to choose the initiatives, for example, in my city Jonkoping we will distribute flyers and we will talk with people about the blockade of Cuba, he said.

According to Tiroler , in addition to addressing Washington's aggressiveness, the day will allow to publicize the campaign to support the purchase of syringes for vaccination in Cuba against COVID-19, the association's current priority.

The Europa por Cuba channel called to carry out actions on social networks from June 6 to 11 and to go out on the streets on June 12 and 13 in the five continents to repudiate the blockade and demand its immediate and unconditional lifting.

Tiroler assured that large Swedish cities, such as this capital and Gothenburg, will be the scene of displays of support for the Caribbean island.

The call to demonstrate in a new world day against the blockade that Cuba has suffered for more than 60 years is framed this time in the vote on June 23 in the UN General Assembly of a draft resolution on the need to end that policy.

A similar text has been approved in the main United Nations forum 28 times since 1992. (Text and photo: PL)
