MESSAGE FROM COMMUNIST PARTY OF CUBA

Sunday 21. December 2014

The Welsh Communist Party today received a message from the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba via Jorge Luis from the Cuban Embassy.

With a great joy, only compared to that of the historic triumph of the Cuban Revolution on January 1st 1959, our people celebrate the return to the homeland of the five anti-terrorist heroes, unjustly incarcerated in U.S. jails for more than 16 years and the decision of the Cuban and U.S governments to reestablish diplomatic relations and to work for their normalization. The only thing left is the lifting of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed upon Cuba.
