Juan Francisco Puello, president of the Caribbean Confederation of Professional Baseball (CBPC by its Spanish acronym) reasserted that the main obstacle for the inclusion of Cuba in that organization is the policy of the United Strates against Havana.

‘The fact that politics is the one defining such an issue, is beyond belief. It does not benefit anyone. In the exact moment in which the differences are fixed, Cuba will be automatically admitted as a full member of the organization,’ said the 69-year veteran Caribbean baseball executive in a conversation with Prensa Latina on Monday.

Es algo inaudito que la política defina este tema. No beneficia a nadie. En el justo momento que se arreglen las diferencias, Cuba será acogida automáticamente como miembro pleno de la Confederación, enfatizó el directivo de 69 años, en diálogo con Prensa Latina.

Al respecto, la directora de Ciencia Tecnología y Medio Ambiente del Inder, Mélix Ilisástigui, comentó que esta política limita igualmente tanto a las adquisiciones de tecnología de laboratorios como las educativas, además de afectar el plano investigativo.

Asimismo, aseveró que, como consecuencia del bloqueo, hay una incidencia fuerte en la estimulación al abandono de los líderes científicos y profesionales a cargo de la preparación de los deportistas, lo cual lacera y debilita la fortaleza de los recursos humanos.

By Prensa Latina

Cubans will reportedly hold walktons throughout the island to reject once more the economic, financial and commercial blockade the US has been enforcing for almost six decades.

According to Granma daily, the event will take place on Saturday, September 9, starting at 10:00 local time as part of the activities for the 57th anniversary of the creation of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution on September 28. In Havana, the walkton will extend from the Museum of the Revolution to the Anti-Imperialist Tribune, right in front of the US Embassy. Several official institutions, trade unions, students’ federations and other mass organizations will support the event which will start a new campaign in and out of Cuba against Washington’s hostile policy.

This year again, Cuba will submit to the UN General Assembly a resolution demanding the US to lift the blockade. This resolution has been passed by the whole international community 24 times in a row since 1992.
