Havana, Sep 30 (ACN) Angolans and Cubans joined their voices to demand the end of the economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed for decades against Cuba by successive U.S. administrations.

It is an act of genocide and economic war in the light of international law, recalled the president of the Association of the Cuban Community Living in Angola, Carlos Moncada, in a political-cultural meeting for the 59th anniversary of the main mass organization in his country, the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR).
The blockade, he said, continues to be the main hurdle for the implementation in Cuba of the national economic and social development plan until 2030 and with a view to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals set by UN.
For his part, Augusto Alberto Joao, an Angolan who lived in the Caribbean island for 13 years, joined the call as an elementary gesture of gratitude: 'The Cuban Revolution has given me everything I have and I think I have still done very little for it,' he told Prensa Latina.
Representatives of the Cuban diplomatic mission in the African nation also attended the event to commemorate the 59 years of existence of the CDRs, created at the initiative of Fidel Castro in September 1960, to strengthen popular participation in safeguarding national independence and sovereignty.
The facts show that the United States, led by Donald Trump, is tightening the blockade to try to choke the Cuban people by hunger and other hardships, but once again "we are closing lines and strengthening unity," Consul Nayma Acosta asserted.
