Brasilia, September 27.- Political parties, movements, solidarity organizations and the association of Cuban residents in Brazil strongly condemned the terrorist attack against the Cuban Embassy in the United States, the second in the last three years.
The Workers' Party (PT) pointed out in a statement that on September 24 we had the sad news of another attack on a representation of the Cuban government abroad, this time at the Embassy in Washington, United States.
It warned that, at a time when we defend democracy and the end of imperialist practices, we see that one more group uses terrorist practices to publicly violate Cuba.
The PT reiterated its solidarity with the Government and the Cuban people at this regrettable moment in history. And we reiterate our position for the end of the blockade of Cuba!, it stressed.
The Communist Party of Brazil (PCdoB) also rejected in a statement the terrorist attack, when an individual threw two Molotov cocktails against the Cuban diplomatic mission in Washington.
The political organization pointed out that, despite all international agreements and laws obligating the country that hosts foreign representations to protect diplomatic facilities, in April 2020 the Cuban embassy in Washington was the target of rifle fire.
These serious events, which occurred in a short period of time, reveal, at the very least, negligence on the part of the US authorities in fulfilling their obligations. Those same authorities that confront human conscience by maintaining a criminal blockade against Cuba, repudiated by practically all UN nations, indicated the PCdoB.
It expressed its unwavering solidarity with the Communist Party of Cuba, the revolutionary government and the Cuban people, and demanded that those responsible for the terrorist attack be identified and punished in an exemplary manner.
Along the same lines, the executive secretary of the Sao Paulo Forum, Mónica Valente, reiterated on a social network the solidarity with Cuba of the concertation mechanism of progressive forces in Latin America and the Caribbean and requested an exhaustive investigation of the terrorist attack.
Likewise, the Paulista Movement of Solidarity with Cuba expressed its repudiation and indignation with yet another act of terrorism against the island, a result of the constant hate speeches launched by the extreme right in Miami, tolerated and supported by the United States administrations.
Likewise, the Association of Cuban Residents in Brazil-José Martí condemned in strong terms the violent aggression against the Cuban diplomatic headquarters in Washington, a clear attack against international peace and security, as well as a flagrant disregard for international law and the norms that govern diplomatic relations between sovereign nations.
