The European Parliament will be the venue next week of an International Court that will symbolically judge the U.S. blockade against Cuba, an event that will allow denouncing the extraterritorial impact of that policy, one of the witnesses announced today.
Paris.- Víctor Fernández, president of the association Cuba Coopération France (CubaCoop), will appear as a witness in the process on November 16 and 17 in Brussels, on behalf of that organization and the State Movement of Solidarity with Cuba in Spain to present concrete examples of the consequences of the siege imposed for more than 60 years.
Although the details of the effects of the U.S. economic, commercial, and financial blockade will be presented at the International Tribunal, Fernández shared with Prensa Latina general aspects of the reproval on the problems it causes in the work of solidarity and cooperation in France and Spain. The extraterritoriality of Washington’s policy implies that companies refuse to sell products that would be sent to Cuba, causes increases in acquisition prices, affecting our capacity to execute projects, and makes the dispatch of goods extremely difficult, he illustrated.
