Gloria La Riva on Foreign Policy

Party for Socialism and Liberation nominee for President

 


Immediate lifting of the U.S. blockade on Cuba

The Party for Socialism and Liberation and all true friends of Cuba demand the immediate lifting of the U.S. blockade for completely different reasons than those advanced by Clinton and the U.S. ruling class.

For more than 55 years, Cuba's people have been subjected to a crushing policy of blockade to force them to submit to U.S. dictates. Denying a whole people medicines, food and the necessities of life and thwarting commerce and trade internationally-is a genocidal policy. U.S. imperialism has created a massive arsenal of economic and political weapons that comprise what is more accurately called "Blockade."

"Embargo" does not begin to describe what Washington heaped on Cuba, causing $1.2 trillion in economic damages.

In all these years, Cuba never surrendered. Despite the harsh blows caused by the U.S. financial, commercial and trade blockade, Cuba has survived precisely because of socialism and the overwhelming support of the people.

Replace US global domination with solidarity among peoples

US foreign policy has only one purpose: global domination through military, economic, political and diplomatic means.

In place of chauvinist imperialist domination, the La Riva/Puryear PSL presidential campaign stands for relations with all nations and peoples based on equality, mutual respect, friendship, cooperation and solidarity. This policy could only be implemented by a government that was no longer beholden to the interests of transnational corporations and banks.
