Joint Declaration of Communist and Workers' Parties

 

SOLIDARITY YES – BLOCKADE NO

WE DEMAND THE IMMEDIATE LIFTING OF THE CRIMINAL US BLOCKADE ON CUBA

 

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread over the whole planet causing enormous human pain and loses, it tragically confirms the existence of two different approaches: one insisting to put profits and imposition of global control above public health and the wellbeing of their own people, and a different one putting people, their health and wellbeing, above all other interests. 

Amidst Covid-19 pandemic, in different continentspeoples become witnesses of the internationalism and solidarity exhibited by Cuba as it responds to calls for assistance by dispatching medical teams to tenths of countries.  This humanitarian response is a continuation of decades of disinterested practice when Cuban doctors and nurses came to the help of countries stricken by natural disasters or epidemics. 

Whilst the word “Solidarity” is echoed from different corners as the necessary approach for the whole planet to face the pandemic, the US choose to further harden the illegal economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on Cuba. At these critical times, when human lives are at stake, the US, by imposing the extraterritoriality clause of the Helms-Burton Law, obstruct personal protective equipment, ventilators, and test kits to be acquired or reach Cuba. This is the most gruesome manifestation of the criminal 60-year-long blockade and its consequences for the life and economic development of Cuba and its people.

 

Under these conditions we the undersigned Communist and Workers’ Parties:

 

  • denounce the criminal US economic, commercial and financial blockade on Cuba
  • demand the immediate lifting of the illegal US blockade on Cuba
  • express our gratitude for Cuba’s solidarity extended to peoples in need through its medical teams
  • reiterate our solidarity with the Communist Party of Cuba, the Cuban Government and People in their struggle to defend the socialist path of development

 

Solidarity YES – Blockade NO

Declaración Común de Partido Comunistas y Obreros

 

Solidaridad Si – Bloqueo No

Exigimos el inmediato levantamiento del criminal Bloqueo de los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica sobre Cuba

 

A la vez que la pandemia COVID – 19 se ha continuado expandiendo por todo el planeta, ocasionando enorme dolor y pérdidas de vidas humanas, se confirma trágicamente la existencia de dos aproximaciones diferentes: una que insiste en imposiciones y obtener beneficios del control mundial sobre la salud pública y el bienestar de las personas y otra diferente que prioriza a las personas, su salud y su bienestar por encima de otros intereses.    

En medio de la pandemia del COVID – 19, en diferentes continentes las personas han sido testigos de la solidaridad y el internacionalismo demostrado por Cuba en respuesta a los llamados de ayuda, enviando equipos médicos a decenas de países. Esta respuesta humanitaria es la continuidad de décadas de implementación de esta práctica desinteresada, cuando los doctores y las enfermeras cubanas han ido a ayudar a países que han sido dañados por epidemias o desastres.      

Mientras que la palabra "Solidaridad" se repite desde diferentes rincones como el enfoque necesario para que todo el planeta se enfrente a la pandemia, los Estados Unidos han escogido recrudecer el ilegal bloqueo financiero, económico y comercial impuesto ilegalmente sobre Cuba. En tiempos tan críticos, cuando la especie humana está en riesgo, los Estados Unidos, bajo la imposición de la cláusula extraterritorial de la Ley Helms – Burton, obstruye que equipamientos de ventilación, kits de prueba u otros, puedan llegar o ser adquiridos por las autoridades cubanas. Esta es la más espantosa manifestación del criminal y duradero Bloqueo de más de 60 años, y sus consecuencias negativas para la vida de los cubanos, el desarrollo económico de la Isla.  

 

Bajo esas condiciones los Partidos Comunistas y de Trabajadores debajo firmantes:

 

  • Denunciamos el criminal Bloqueo Financiero, Económico y Comercial de EEUU contra Cuba
  • Exigimos el inmediato levantamiento del ilegal bloqueo del EEUU contra Cuba. 
  • Manifestamos nuestro agradecimiento a la solidaridad cubana que se ha puesto al alcance de personas necesitadas a través de sus equipos médicos. 
  • Reiteramos nuestra solidaridad con el Partido Comunista de Cuba, el Gobierno y pueblo cubanos en su lucha para defender el camino socialista hacia el desarrollo. 

 

Solidaridad Si – Bloqueo No

صيغة اقترحها الحزب الشيوعي القبرصي - أكيل (11/4/2020)

للبيان المشترك الصادر عن الأحزاب الشيوعية والعمّالية

 

نعم للتضامن – لا للحصار

 

نطالب الرفع الفوري للحصار الإجرامي الأمريكي عن كوبا

 

في حين يواصل وباء كوفيد-19 (فيروس الكورونا) الانتشار في جميع بقاع الأرض مسببا خسائر وآلام إنسانية هائلة،يتأكد على نحو مأساوي وجود نهجين اثنين مختلفين في عالمنا: الأول نهج يصرّ على منح الأولوية للأرباح وفرض الهيمنة العالمية مقابلالصحة العامة ورفاهية الشعوب، ونهج ثانٍ يضع الناس وصحتهم ورفاهتهم فوق جميع المصالح الأخرى.

 

وسط تفشي وباء كوفيد-19، يشهد الناس بأمّ أعينهم في مختلف القارات على التوجه الأممي والتضامن الذي أبدته كوبا من خلال استجابتها لدعوات طلب المساعدة،والتي تجسدت في إرسال فرق طبية إلى عشرات الدول. هذه الاستجابة الإنسانية هي استمرار لعقود من الممارسة النبيلة البعيدة عن عقلية المصالح، إذ لطالما وصلت فرق الطب والتمريض الكوبية لمساعدة البلدان المتضررة من الكوارث الطبيعية أو الأوبئة.

 

وفي حين يتردد صدى كلمة "تضامن" من شتى أصقاع الأرض، باعتبارها النهج الضروري لمواجهة الوباء على مستوى العالم بأكمله، فإن إدارة الولايات المتحدة تختار تشديد حصارها الاقتصادي والتجاري والمالي غير القانوني المفروض على كوبا. في هذه الأوقات الحرجة، عندما تكون حياة البشر على المحك، فإن الولايات المتحدة، بفرضها معيار "قانون هيلمز-بيرتون" خارج حدودها الإقليمية، تقوم بإعاقة اقتناء ووصول تجهيزات الوقاية والحماية، وأجهزة التنفس الصناعي، ومعدات إجراء الفحوصات إلى جزيرة الحرية كوبا. وهو ما يشكل أبشع مظهر للحصار الأمريكي الإجرامي المستمر منذ 60 عاما ولعواقبه الخطيرة على الحياة في كوبا وشعبها وتنميتها الاقتصادية.

 

في ظلّ هذه الظروف القاتمة فإننا، الأحزاب الشيوعية والعمالية الموقعة على هذا البيان:

 

- ندين الحصار الأمريكي الإجرامي الاقتصادي والتجاري والمالي على كوبا

- نطالب بالرفع الفوري للحصار الأمريكي غير القانوني على كوبا

- نعرب عن امتناننا لتضامن كوبا مع مختلف المحتاجين في العالم من خلال فرقها الطبية

- نكرر تضامننا مع الحزب الشيوعي الكوبي والحكومة والشعب الكوبيين في كفاحهم العادل للدفاع عن درب التنمية الاشتراكي.

 

نعم للتضامن – لا للحصار
