Terrorist attack on the Cuban embassy in Washington

Statement by the Communist Party of Ireland – 25 September 2023

The Communist Party of Ireland condemns the terrorist attack on the Cuban Embassy in Washington on 24 September, and calls on the US authorities to provide greater protection to the embassy.

This attack must be seen in the light of the ongoing cold war waged by successive US administrations against socialist Cuba, including the illegal blockade, which has been repeatedly condemned by the UN General Assembly.

Neither the terrorism of the petrol-bombers nor the state terrorism of the blockade will defeat the Cuban Revolution, which will continue to act as a beacon for all those who struggle against imperialism.

The Communist Party of Ireland salutes the heroic Cuban people, led by their Communist Party, and calls for the ending of the blockade and all acts of terrorism against Cuba and its Embassies.
