A legislative project named "Law for Cuban Democratic Freedom and Solidarity", according to specialists, establishes the internationalization of the blockade, the refusal of credits and financial aid to countries and organizations that favor or promote cooperation with Cuba; hindering foreign investment in the Island.
History has shown that it is a spiral sustained by deceit, interference in personal matters and impudence towards other nations of the world. The United States increasingly tightens its siege, regardless of the consequences. Cuba is no longer enough, now it is also against those who, in solidarity, join the just cause of our country. The Helms-Burton Act involves wealthy magnates hidden under strains of lies and injustice; those who justify with a different Cuba, when they really want the worst.
The support of organizations, sister countries and all the people seems to be enough. On several occasions, the will to maintain our conquests has been reiterated, despite the policies imposed by the US government, this version led by President Donald Trump and his representative chamber. They think about economic transformations and changes of mentality, when it is certainly necessary to demolish the walls that impede the sustainable advance of the Cuban economy.
The controversial law intensifies the blockade, strengthens the siege at the international level, establishes a plan for transition and interference, alienates business partners and family members, destroys diplomatic relations and violates international law. Is there anything more to add to this list? You are right. What is lacking is the will of a people who struggle daily for development, who are not afraid of fraudulent blackmail, nor of the letters put on the table by a government that only intends to become the owner of a free continent.
The Helms-Burton Act flagrantly violates the laws and human rights of the Cuban people, the Constitution of the United States and various legal norms of that country, numerous acts of international law that regulate political, economic, commercial and financial relations among the States. and threatens the freedom of trade and investment, which has generated conflicts with the main partners of the United States. Among these violations are:
The Power of the Executive to conduct foreign policy. The principle of "freedom of financing and investment" and "the subordination of subsidiary companies to the laws of the resident country".
The recognized principle of "respect for the sovereignty of other nations."
The free action of people based on trade.
The Bilateral Treaties on Investment Protection and Bilateral Trade Agreements with several countries.
The recognized principle that "the ownership of a property is established according to the laws of the country where it is located".
As a consequence of the economic blockade imposed by the United States, Cuba can not export or import any product to that nation, it can not trade with subsidiaries of North American companies located in third countries. Cuba can not receive American tourists or use the dollar in its commercial and financial transactions abroad. Cuban ships and airplanes can not touch US territory.
