French association plans to promote solidarity with Cuba

The Cuba Sí Francia association announced today new solidarity actions with the island in 2023 to support it in the fight against the U.S. economic, commercial and financial blockade and its extraterritorial impact.

Donations, activities and fundraising will focus the agenda of the organization with more than three decades of accompanying the Cuban Revolution, it told Prensa Latina.

At the beginning of the year, Cuba Sí Francia will donate 2,000 euros to MediCuba-Switzerland, an entity recognized for its work in support of the Antillean nation’s health system.

During 2023, we will be part of a great national project of material solidarity with the island and its people, the details of which we will inform soon, said the association presided by Charly Bouhana.

According to the French organization, this year its honorary president, the deputy and communist leader André Chassaigne, will work on a book about Cuba, and the profits from it will be entirely dedicated to support the assaulted Caribbean country.

Regarding Chassaigne, Cuba Sí Francia congratulated him for his election as leader of the France-Cuba Friendship group in the National Assembly.

Regarding some of the actions developed last year, he highlighted the collection of 18 thousand euros in response to tragedies suffered by the largest of the Antilles, particularly the explosion at the Saratoga Hotel in Havana and the devastating passage through the west of Hurricane Ian.

The efforts made to send that money to Cuba demonstrated once again the impact of the extraterritoriality of the U.S. blockade in Europe and in France, as well as the fear of banks to participate in transactions related to the island for fear of Washington’s sanctions, he denounced.

The French association greeted through Prensa Latina the 64th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution and ratified its condemnation of the siege imposed by the United States for more than six decades.

Likewise, it acknowledged the resistance of the small country in the face of aggressions and a blockade which it considered a policy of nameless cruelty.
