Protest in Nigeria against U.S

More than 500 delegates from 29 African countries and around the arena have protested the 60-12 months monetary sanction imposed on Cuba via the US government.
The protest march which was initially scheduled for the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria became later held on the Unity Fountain, Abuja, on Wednesday.

It changed into a concluding a part of the 3-day hobby of the 6th African Continental Conference of Solidarity with Cuba, hosted via the Nigeria Movement of Solidarity with Cuba.

Owei Lakemfa, the spokesperson of the movement, stated at the beginning of the protest that the change of venue turned into to ensure the safety of overseas delegates.

“Ordinarily, if all people has whatever approximately us marching, we will confront them due to the fact the Nigerian constitution has given us the right to motion and we don’t ought to take permission from anyone. But whilst we've invited humans from 29 different nations amongst us, we need to be extra careful.

“And so if the Americans are already jittery and the Nigerian protection aren't sure of what is going to take place; it's miles better we clear up it in that symbolic manner, just via a few streets in Abuja, visit the Unity Fountain, have a rally there and so as to be all,” he said.


The movement accommodates the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and a coalition of civil societies and clothing.

They called for global support for Cuba against the U.S. Economic blockade that forestalls it from having access to worldwide marketplace freely.

Cuba is a Latin American u . S . A . That has been subjected to restrictions on its economic sports by the U.S.


Condemning the blockade on Cuba’s financial activities, Imani Na Umoja, a delegate from Guinea Bissau and leader of African Party of Guinea, stated that the U.S. Authorities must now not be allowed to kill humanity, and it is able to be achieved by way of status with Cuba in opposition to ‘imperialism.’

“As Africans, we can not allow Cuba to be sacrificed by using the hobby of the few greedy capitalists. We hope the world reunite with the message of team spirit with Cuba. The American government represents the evil forces which can be seeking to destroy humanity, mainly their 60-yr blockade against Cuba. Cuba has helped Africa in many regions and each section of our conflict together with healthcare.”

He introduced that Africa must display the arena the instance of what freedom and humanism suggest, “via solidarity with Cuba”.

“We are here because we're humans. We trust in humanism and that people need to be free and and no longer have any shape of exploration or injustice,” he stated. “When there may be no battle, there may be no development; our struggle is to have a free global in which humans devour the fruit of their labour. The international must be unfastened and Africa will display the instance.”

Similarly, James Harris, an American delegate and leading member of U.S. Socialist Workers Party, said that helping Cuba in the battle for financial freedom from ‘American imperialists’ became a favour to self.

He condemned the ‘action’ of the U.S. Embassy for changing the venue of the protest for their worry of ‘innocent protesters.’

“If we cannot aid Cuba, we can not aid ourselves. If we don’t apprehend the sacrifices of the Cubans to the sector, we cannot emulate them and that's what imperialism imposes. That is why they visit the period of treachery to prevent us from demonstration the (US) embassy.”

Meanwhile, the Cuban Ambassador to Nigeria, Carlos Trejor, commended the organisers and delegates of the occasion for giving an awful lot support to Cuba while it needed it.

He stated that the us of a would stay friends with Africa as a associate in progress, noting the cultural affinity the country shares with Africa.

“We really thank our pals, the setting up committee. The maximum crucial achievement that we've got obtained is that a massive harmony movement is solidly at the back of us. We thank honestly our buddies who came for the assembly. It happens that the ones humans in cohesion with Cuba are not the wealthy ones.

“When we speak about Cuba; we communicate about cohesion, dignity. You cannot be loose or sovereign in case you don’t have dignity. The capitalist global can steal their wealth however they cannot scouse borrow their dignity because that is the most important component,” he stated.
