UNITE has condemned US interference in Cuba and called for Washington’s illegal blockade to be “immediately and unconditionally” lifted.
The union declared its view that recent disturbances on the socialist island have their roots in the inhumane blockade, which is leaving causing shortages of food, power and medicine.
Unite general secretary Len McCluskey accused US President Joe Biden of failing to alleviate the acute problems that the Caribbean country faced during the presidency of his predecessor Donald Trump.
He said: “The simplest measure President Biden could take to avert any crisis in Cuba would be to lift the blockade.
“The Cubans already possess the necessary infrastructure to ensure that materials and medicines get to where they are most needed.
“Talk of a ‘humanitarian corridor’ is cover for US intervention; from Guatemala in 1954 through to Chile in 1973 and elsewhere more recently, US intervention in Latin America has never been beneficial for working people.
“We stand with the Cuban unions, which have said: ‘What Cuba needs is for the blockade to be eliminated.’
"Unite calls on President Biden to immediately and unconditionally lift the illegal blockade.”
