The march is just another episode in a more comprehensive strategy. Behind the “non-violent march” mantra is the long shadow of the life-long reactionaries who dream of ending the Cuban Revolution no later than 15 November. Washington is lubricating the route plan of the protest with threats and dollars.
This is an example of socialist internationalism, made possible by the leadership of the CPC and the powerful economic development of the Chinese economy.
It also makes all adherents of the “neither Washington nor Beijing” position look more than a little ridiculous.
By punishing the Cuban people, the US clearly intends to send a threatening message in particular to all Latin Americans: this will be your fate if you resist our demands. Today is a crucial moment for all those who stand for national independence, for social justice and equality and for a multilateral world to add their voices in opposition to the US unilateral policy against Cuba.
The US now faces a significant risk which can affect its geopolitical position. It is unable to carry out a ‘colour counter-revolution’ in Cuba because of the relation of forces in that country. Meanwhile US policy on Cuba is opposed by an overwhelming number of counties.

An economic crisis caused by the tightening of the US blockade, 243 additional US sanctions, and the COVID-19 pandemic has led to serious shortages in food, fuel, and medicines in Cuba.
The situation in Cuba is today the key to the situation in Latin America and is of crucial importance throughout the world. Defeat of Cuba, that is success of the US in its hybrid war, would be a huge step forward for the US in its fight against national independence in Latin America and throughout the world, and in the fight against the new cold war against China.
