Cuba for US Isolation at UN on Blockade

The permanent representative of Nicaragua at UN, Maria Rubiales, assured today that the United States will remain isolated again next Tuesday at the General Assembly, where a new draft Resolution will be put to the vote to put end to the blockade on Cuba.

We know that it will happen, because the vast majority of the peoples and governments worldwide are against such inhuman and criminal act, affirmed here in an interview granted to Prensa Latina.

We will not only see that except two or three countries, the vast majority will push the green bottom to demand the lifting of sanctions, but we will also listen to speeches from representatives of Africa, Latin America and other regions, she announced.

To Rubiales, it canâ�Öt be overlooked that United States blocks an island that instead of militaries, as the US government does, send army of doctors and teachers to other countries.

In October 29, the UN General Assembly will put to the vote, for 22nd occasion, consecutively , a project of resolution on the need to put end to the siege which economic damages Cuba estimates in one billion 157,327 million dollars.

The Nicaraguan diplomat called the attention on the US efforts to ignore, every year, the demand of the international community to the UN main body.

The history of rating on blockade shows that it has never reached to 5 nations oppose to the draft resolution and abstentions reached the last time twice more than in 1998.

Bayamo Marks Cuba's Culture Day
Holguin Music House, Fun and Joy


That October 20, 1869, hardly 10 days after Carlos Manuel de Cespedes rose up in arms against the Spanish colonila rule, the anthem was interpreted for the first time in the city of Bayamo.

According to the popular legend, more poetic than realistic, Pedro Figueredo wrote the anthem sitting on his horse, and some moments later, all the people chanted "La Bayamesa," title of the song.

A shorter but forceful version of that anthem of combat, has lasted until today.

The stanzas that called to die for the Fatherland are updated, and they are taken today in Cuba as a flag to rescue values to improve the national spirituality. / Source: PL.
