LYC condemns attack on the Cuban Embassy and lack of US response

The League of Young Communists USA (LYCUSA) stands in solidarity with our Cuban comrades, who were fired upon last week by a domestic terrorist at the Cuban Embassy in Washington DC. The LYCUSA understands that this act of terror is just another act in a long line of US government fueled hostility. We denounce the rabid anti-communism which fueled this attack and hope for continued safety of the Cuban diplomats and their people, who want for nothing but peace.

The embassy, riddled with bullets, was spared in one regard: The statue of national hero and Cuban revolutionary José Martí was still standing triumphantly despite a bullet hole. We also hope that the paranoid man who committed this act of terror finds the help he needs and ceases his hostility towards the Cuban people.
