International Support for Cuba Grows after Trump's SpeechHavana, Cuba, Jun 29 (ACN) Cuba has the current support of over 50 renowned US figures after Donald Trump's recent announcement in changing Washington's policy towards Cuba.

The message of the Writers and Artists Association (UNEAC) served as a starting point in which renowned personalities like artist like Setsuko Ono and retired US Army Colonel Ann Wright expressed their solidarity with the Cuban people.

The President of the US National Council of Churches, James Winkler; peace activist Cindy Sheehan, attorney Dan Kovalik; poets Jorge Palma from Uruguay and Hector Celano from Argentina and others have also expressed their support of Cuba.

US Film Director Oliver Stone also expressed support to Cuba and condemned Trump's change of policy towards the island.

Stone also signed the message sent by UNEAC to friends of Cuban culture, with the objective of denouncing the policy change Trump announced last June 16th in Miami.

Dominican singer Victor Victor who performed in Havana last February also joined the group of over 3 thousand persons that signed the UNEAC message which denounces Trump's announcement of reinforcing its blockade against Cuba.

UNEAC characterized Trump's speech as obsolete, full of false information and stereotype while addressing a group of people that does not represent the majority of the Cuban Americans in the United States.

The group is also made up by Peruvians and Ecuadoreans, members of the Network in Defense of Humanity, President of the Argentinean League for the Rights of Humanity, Graciela Rosemblum and the General Secretary of the Chilean Writers Society, Luis Aguilera.
