Tribute in Miami for the 9/11 protests and criticism of the EU for supporting the Cuban regime

(EFE) the “tyranny” of the Government of the Island.

“Not one more euro for a murderous 64-year-old dictatorship,” said the Spanish MEP Hermann Tertsch by videoconference at an event held in Miami (Florida, USA) on the occasion of the second anniversary of a “historic day”, as he described the social outbreak of 11-J, for which hundreds of people were arrested and sentenced to prison.

Tertsch, from the Spanish right-wing Vox party, announced that this week his group will present a “very harsh” resolution against the Cuban government and what he described as an “anomaly.”

He thus referred to “the fact that Western democracies finance a criminal dictatorship” through the cooperation agreement between the European Union and Cuba, which, in his opinion, should be annulled as soon as possible.

In addition to this resolution, it was announced at the event that the Cuba Justice Commission, made up of jurists to investigate the crimes against humanity of the Cuban regime, will hold a trial of those involved in 2024.

The ARC leader also spoke of what Tertsch described as “obscene complicity of the EU with the Cuban dictatorship.”

Orlando Gutiérrez, from the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance (ARC), told EFE on Tuesday that, although the judgment of the commission, led by the Mexican jurist René Bolio, is not binding, it is very important.

Gutiérrez mentioned the so-called Russell tribunal, an initiative of the British philosopher Bertrand Russell seconded by European intellectuals such as Jean-Paul Sartre, who judged the US intervention in Vietnam in 1966 in a private capacity.

“While his ruling was not binding, it was a factor in the US withdrawing from Vietnam,” he said.

The ARC leader also spoke of what Tertsch described as “obscene complicity of the EU with the Cuban dictatorship” to indicate that it is not possible to understand “how European democracies help to maintain power” to a regime that supports the Vladimir Putin’s Russia in the war in Ukraine and even sends “volunteers” to Belarus.

During the act for the second anniversary of 9/11, exile leaders in Miami, such as Jorge Luis García Pérez Antúnez, Berta Antúnez and Ángel de Fana, remembered the fighters for Cuban freedom since 1959, the year of the triumph of the revolution, and the “political” prisoners of before and now.
