#US lies & threats VS #Cuba denounced around the world #HelmsBurton Act’s Title III Via Granma Cuba


Voices around the world continue to condemn new U.S. sanctions on Cuba, in particular the recent activation of the Helms-Burton Act’s Title III.
The government of Mexico reiterated its rejection of the re-activation of this stipulation in violation of international law, and reaffirmed its commitment to legally protect Mexican companies that may be affected. In an official communique, the Ministry of Economy recalled that, in order to counteract the extraterritorial effects of the Helms-Burton, Mexico enacted a law that specifically protects commerce and investment from foreign regulations that contravene international norms, in effect since October 1996.
“Like other countries, Mexico has analyzed the relevant legal procedures to file complaints for violations of international law that the Helms-Burton Act represents,” the Mexican government states.
The Islamic Republic of Iran also confirmed its support for the Cuba. “Washington demonstrated, once again, that it resorts to illegitimate mechanisms to pressure independent countries,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Seyed Abas Musavi said.
According to Prensa Latina, a professor at the Chinese University of Political Science and Law, Pan Deng, commented that the Trump administration is attempting to pressure Cuba and affecting the entire international community.

On the #HelmsBurton Act, let’s talk “Cuban” language / “… #Cubans r made of iron & can resist the most difficult trials.”


From the Original Post In Granma English

The Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act is a vengeful monstrosity that is aimed at breaking the soul of Cuba, through whatever bloodletting is needed, causing an immense shock to leave us prostrate forever. The goal is the extermination of a nation.
Let’s imagine two hypothetical scenarios, impossible for those of us who have confidence in our ability to resist and our people’s courage.
First: The imperialist enemy and its allies, making use of their military might, manage to occupy most of the country and establish a transitional government, after proclaiming the end of the Revolution.Second: The division, deceit, and discouragement sown by the enemy, the betrayal, force us to “let the sword fall,” as in 1878, a Baraguá cannot be ruled out. A transitional government is established and U.S. troops occupy the country to guarantee the arrival of “humanitarian aid.”Would we then have “free and democratic” elections? No, the transitional government, handpicked by the occupation forces, cannot call elections until the United States Congress says so.
So, after who knows how many years, the U.S. Congress approves elections. What about the economic, commercial, and financial blockade? Is it lifted when the end of the Revolution is proclaimed? No, that’s not the plan; it remains intact during the transition, to keep the pressure on.Well, continuing the hypothetical story, the transition is over, we have an acceptable, Yankee style president and government. Will the blockade be lifted? One might think so, but no, that’s not what the Helms-Burton stipulates.

Engel on Implementation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act

April 172019

Bronx, NY—Representative Eliot L. Engel, Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, today made the following statement:

“President Trump’s rejection of over two decades of bipartisan consensus on a key piece of U.S. policy toward Cuba will further isolate the United States from our Latin American and European allies and diminish our ability to promote democracy in Cuba and Venezuela. Sadly, this decision will do nothing to resolve U.S. property claims in Cuba—an important goal toward which we must continue to strive.

“Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama all waived Title III of the Helms-Burton Act for so long because they rightly concluded that it would harm U.S. interests, American businesses, and the Cuban people. It will also damage our partnerships with key allies, including Canada and the European Union, by opening up another front in the Trump trade war as it opens the United States to litigation in the WTO. The losers in the latest round of Donald Trump’s cowboy diplomacy will be the American people who will suffer the real-life consequences of retaliatory trade measures.

“And, there are very serious repercussions of this decision on our cooperation with allies in support of democracy in Venezuela. instead of understanding the impact of today’s action on our partners, the Trump Administration has chosen to isolate itself from those in the EU and the Americas with whom we should be coordinating. I urge the President to rethink this ill-advised decision and self-inflicted wound.”


Title III of the Helms-Burton Act allows Americans to file suit in U.S. courts against those “trafficking” in properties confiscated in Cuba. Its reach is extraterritorial and allows suits to move forward against foreign defendants.

Out of the blue some people are trying to reinvented the language, for example the “armed intervention” now is calling “humanitarian aid” and in the case of the Helms-Burton “legal monster” Act the crushing of a country is placed under the “innocent” Name of the “Law of Freedom and Solidarity with Cuba” A whole project about a an imagined state or society in which there is great suffering or injustice, typically one that is totalitarian or post-apocalyptic  DYSTOPIA, with a republic even more unreal than that which arose in 1902.

Re-Targeting #Cuba: Why Title III of U.S. #HelmsBurtonAct will be a Horror Show Via Counterpunch


Embarked upon overthrowing Venezuela’s socialist government, the U.S. government now renews efforts to squash Cuba. The U.S. record of implacable hostility features terror attacks, military invasion, germ warfare, internal subversion, and almost 60 years of U.S. economic blockade. Devoid of natural resources ready for U.S. plunder, Cuba offends by having defended socialism and national independence. Now Title III of the U.S. 1996 Helms Burton Act joins an arsenal of weapons employed in what Cubans regard as genocidal aggression.

Helms Burton is complex but centers on tightening the economic blockade; preparing for a transition government; and by means of Title III, inflicting suffering and destabilization.  The latter is taking place now in Venezuela, by other means.

“Reaffirmation of Cuban #Dignity & #Sovereignty” Law No.80 V.S #HelmsBurton Act – Via Cubadebate / #UnBlockCuba


The Helms Burton Act It is not relevant in Cuba, in the first place, because it’s a law  issued by the United States and therefore its jurisdiction, can be applied within the United States, not outside its borders.

No sovereign country that is respected would allow the extraterritorial application of a law of the United States or another country in its territory.

Cuba also issued in 1996 the “Reaffirmation of Cuban #Dignity & #Sovereignty” Law, knows as “Antidote law against Helms-Burton”
