The Friends of Cuba Society says the economic sanctions which the United States has imposed on Cuba is severely hampering the development of the Cuban economy.

The group picketed outside Parliament today to draw attention to the plight of Cubans who


they say are suffering under trade embargoes.

They were joined by members of the Young Communist League of South Africa.

Friends of Cuba Society Secretary, Fatima Swartz: "We seeing this strategy of sanctions being used not just against Cuba, but also against Venezuela and other countries.

So it is very important at this point in time that the world stands up and says that societies, countries and their citizens have the right to organise their society in a way which benefits them


and is best for them."
