Sinn Fein condemns embargo

Sinn Fein, the Irish Republican party, passed the following resolution at its February 25-26 national conference (Ard Fheis).

"That This Ard Fheis unreservedly condemns as a disgrace the Dublin government's decision to instruct its representative at the United Nations to abstain on the recent vote condemning the United States trade embargo against Cuba.

"The Cuban economy has been crippled because of the US blockade. Its retention by the US government at this time, with the Cold War over, exposes the real reason behind the blockade — Washington's distaste for Cuba's government and the Cuban revolution which established a society surpassing any in Latin America in terms of social equality."
