HAVANA, Cuba: The French Revolutionary Communist League (LCR) reaffirmed its solidarity with Cuba after the devastation caused by the passing of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike in a period of less than two weeks.

The Cuban News Agency published this report on September 15:

LCR leader Olivier Besancenot met with a Cuban delegation that participated this year’s L´Humanité newspaper celebrations in Paris.

Besancenot highlighted the island’s excellent preparation and discipline when facing hurricanes. He reaffirmed his organization’s solidarity with the Cuban people and their demand to lift the criminal blockade imposed by the US on Cuba for more than four decades, reported Prensa Latina news agency.

The US blockade prevents Cuba from purchasing essential items from their nearby neighbour to the north to alleviate the damages suffered by the victims of these hurricanes, noted the LCR.
