On June 23, 2021 the United Nations General Assembly once again condemned the cruel U.S. blockade on Cuba. A total of 184 countries voted in favour of Cuba's resolution demanding an end of the U.S. economic blockade, only 2 countries (the U.S. and Israel) voted against the resolution. For the 29th consecutive vote, the world stood with Cuba! Once again the U.S. and its unjust policy of blockade was absolutely isolated.

As well, we are protesting the U.S. meddling in Cuba's internal affairs in light of recent provocations and incidents in Cuba. Here is CNC statement:

Join the Canadian Network on Cuba at this 15th monthly virtual picket as we continue our campaign to build pressure on the Biden administration to end the blockade on Cuba! These actions are a continuation of coordinated monthly protests against the U.S. blockade which have been taking place in Vancouver, Ottawa and Montreal, Canada and Kiev, Ukraine on the 17th of each month since 2015. We will be united from across Canada and around the world in demanding: Lift the Blockade on Cuba Now!
