At the end of 2017 and while imperialists and their international organizations boast about a globalized economy which, step by step, overcomes global capitalist crisis, the Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) figures refute the statements of imperialists and multinationals’ representatives, especially in the Latin America region.

However, the figures concerning hunger in Latin America and the Caribbean are revealing. According to the FAO Regional Office, hunger is on the rise in Latin America and the Caribbean. The number of people suffering from hunger increased by 2,4 million from 2015 to 2016, reaching a total of 42,5 millions, according to the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2017.

wfdyFor once more the U.N. General Assembly, held yesterday on November 1, 2017, has voted a special Resolution for the lifting of the U.S. blockade on Cuba. The total number of 191 countries voted in favor of the Resolution, while only the United States of America and their puppet Israel were the only countries to vote against the resolution.

The blockade against Cuba is a policy, which has been imposed for over 50 years by the U.S.A. and constitutes a flagrant, massive, and systematic violation of the human rights of the Cuban people. This imperialist policy of blockade is an act of genocide, which intends to economically strangle the Cuban people and force their surrender. The human damage produced by the implementation of this policy is incalculable. It constitutes clearly an obstacle to Cuba's economic and social development.
