Communist Parties of Greece and Turkey denounce U.S. decision to put Cuba back on list of "sponsors of terrorism"

The Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) has published a statement concerning the U.S. government's decision to include Cuba on the list of "state sponsors of terrorism".

TKP: If you are looking for, you are the terrorist!

The State Department of the United States, once again, listed Cuba among the countries supporting terrorism as of yesterday. As if the outrage caused by the Trump supporters was not enough, this decision proves once again as the President of the US is leaving power the government’s officiousness doesn’t recognize any bounds.

In past months as the rest of the world was struggling with coronavirus pandemic, Trump government saw these conditions as an opportunity to further strengthen the blockade against Cuba. President showman was spending his last few months conducting performances of his paid agents to destabilize Cuba. Now they are after playing their last trump card.

The people of Cuba have responded to these attempts with keeping calm and further strengthening their unity. Cuban people are civilized, organized and revolutionary. For that, in all world they have a legitimacy the US will never be able to reach.

The US is the country that terrorizes the people everywhere in our world, including its own people. Hundreds of thousands of poor people in the US lost their lives for nothing, hundreds of them were targeted by racist attacks. Our world is filled with the US armories. It is the US, its collaborators and the gangs of murderers they have created with their own hands turning Japan, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Syria and the whole Mediterranean into mass graveyards. If the US government is looking for terrorists, they can find them amongst their own.

The US officials, with the blood in their hand, claiming Cuba is “supporting terror”, has no significance. The US is struggling and sinking as it fails to beat Cuba. No matter what banditry, their efforts to tame Cuba will fail. They couldn’t overthrow for the last 62 years; and will not be able to do so.

Fidel’s country will not bow to this repression as they don’t bow to any. Their friends will protect Cuba with gratitude, solidarity and hope. And they should know, the friends of Cuba are much more then they think.

Greetings to ones bringing health to everywhere, to ones keeping people alive!

Long Live Cuba!

Down with the US imperialism!


KKE: Hands Off Cuba! NATO and the U.S. are the terrorists!

In a statement issued today, the International Relations Section of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) condemns the U.S. government's decision to include Cuba on the list of the states-"sponsors of terrorism". The statement which was published on 902 portal reads:

“Just a few days before the end of its term, the deeply discredited U.S. government chose to bring Cuba back to the list of the “states that support terrorism”, thus strengthening further the sanctions against the Island of the Revolution.

Cuba not only does not support terrorism but, on the contrary, it is itself a victim of dozens of terrorist acts and attacks, orchestrated and guided by the U.S. Governments and services, leading to the death of 3,478 Cuban civilians and injuring 2,099.

This deplorable action, apart from the anti-communist animosity of the U.S. bourgeois political system – whose “democracy” was admired by the whole world a few days ago – expresses the Trump administration's attempt to determine the developments of the next period. What is certain is that either with such aggressive actions or with a more “flexible” policy, the U.S. effort to undermine Cuba will continue.

The Communist Party of Greece strongly condemns the new escalation of the U.S. imperialist aggression against Cuba, demands the immediate revocation of this decision, the lifting of the barbaric economic blockade of Cuba and once again expresses its solidarity to the heroic Cuban people, the Communist Party of Cuba and the Cuban government”.
