Statement of the World Peace Council on the recent protest events in Cuba

Activities - Appeals


The World Peace Council (WPC) expresses its serious concern about the recent well orchestrated and paid imperialist plan to create chaos and disorder in Cuba, using as pretext the severe shortages of imported goods and other products of primary necessity, as well as electricity cuts, facts that have to the great extend their root causes in the almost sixty (60) years criminal blockade imposed by the USA on Cuba. Particularly during the last period and in conditions of the global health pandemic, Cuba is being prevented through new and additional measures and sanctions to purchase and import medicine and raw material for medicine as well as technical hospital supplies.

While acknowledging the suffering of the Cuban people the WPC underlines in the strongest way its rejection to any actions of interference and subversive actions which are aiming in the “regime change” by paid elements and mercenaries as we have observed it in other parts of the world with “Color Revolutions”. The Cuban people know too well that the imperialists have never stopped the war against their country, regardless the rotating methods or the changing residents of the White House. These criminal and inhuman policies are being helped by its imperialist allies of the European Union and their agents inside Cuba and in Florida who demanded today even an open intervention under humanitarian pretext as it has been witnessed also in other cases of countries before.

We denounce the cynical interest of those forces that cause the suffering by political and economical sanctions and blockade first and their hypocrisy then for the “poor Cuban people” who have to be taught “democracy and human rights”. Cuba particularly has given lessons of solidarity and dignity many times from the triumph of the Revolution in 1959 on, but this last period during the Covid-19 pandemic, the island of the Revolution has championed one more time with its selfless internationalist aid to peoples in need while it is developing in extremely difficult conditions its own vaccines very rapidly with the commitment to help poor and oppressed peoples of the world as well.

We express our indignation to the imperialist plans to create social discontent and direct it against the sovereign Cuban government. The achievements of the Socialist Cuba constitute an example and source of inspiration for the peoples of Latin America and the world.  

The WPC stands in Solidarity with the heroic people of Cuba and its Revolution!

We demand the immediate lifting of the blockade and of all sanctions against Cuba!

End to the imperialist provocations!

Hands off Cuba!
