Cubans will Hold Race-Walking against US Blockade

f0089673.jpgCubans will reportedly hold walktons throughout the island to reject once more the economic, financial and commercial blockade the US has been enforcing for almost six decades.

According to Granma daily, the event will take place on Saturday, September 9, starting at 10:00 local time as part of the activities for the 57th anniversary of the creation of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution on September 28. In Havana, the walkton will extend from the Museum of the Revolution to the Anti-Imperialist Tribune, right in front of the US Embassy. Several official institutions, trade unions, students' federations and other mass organizations will support the event which will start a new campaign in and out of Cuba against Washington's hostile policy.

This year again, Cuba will submit to the UN General Assembly a resolution demanding the US to lift the blockade. This resolution has been passed by the whole international community 24 times in a row since 1992. / PL
