The History of the Cuban Five
Saturday, February 07, 2015

 BY EARLE CLARKE.

Any person who possess a modicum of Love, Fairness, respect for others, would readily agree that there needs not to be any hostility between the United States Of America and Cuba, because both of them are Sovereign Countries, which, under the United Nations Charter drawn up in 1948, have the RIGHT to pursue the pathway to economic development best suited to them. America chose the Capitalist pathway to its Development. Cuba has chosen the Socialist system for its economic Development, perhaps, because of being a colony of Spain and because the introduction of slavery  forced  a whole race of people to be brutalized, so that they could  work for free, in order  that a few persons become rich from their sweat, indignity and loss of lives; for the system which produced slavery has not changed its modus operandi. It has only camouflaged it a little. You cannot use the system which enslaved a whole race of people, to turn around and liberate those same people.  You cannot live in harmony with Cuba which is Communist, just 90 miles distance  from  you  has a 55 year old economic embargo imposed on it; but you can trade with Communist China which is hundreds of mile away from you, allowing it to  plunge huge investments in big business institutions in your country and free to purchases stocks and bonds in your country.  Isn’t this cause to cry out, “DOUBLE STANDARDS?”

Why the hostility against Communist Cuba, But the  hand in glove  friendship  with  Communist  China? Her Read More...

“We rejoice with the loved ones, friends and well-wishers of the Cuban Five who have waited for so long to be reunited with their fathers, sons, grandparents and uncles,” a Ministry of Foreign Affairs statement said.

He said that St. Kitts and Nevis has been proud to support the annual call for the resolution at the United Nations for the United States to lift the decades-long financial, commercial and economic embargo which has caused untold difficulties for the people of the Republic.

“My Government commends both leaders for engaging in civil dialogue that has resulted in this milestone which will redound to the benefit of their peoples, the hemisphere and the world over. This remarkable move presents a new shift in US foreign policy and offers novel economic prospects for the Cuban people worldwide,” said Mr. Nisbett.

“Certainly, this is a political renaissance which will be revered the world over. This new policy symbolizes the close of a cold war belligerence and the start of a new chapter which seeks to normalize diplomatic and economic ties between both countries. No longer must Cuba be isolated from hemispheric activities,” Mr. Nisbett added.
