Cuba protects the Environment and advocates harmony with nature (+Audio)

Florida, November 6.- On this day of November 6, when in Palestinian strip of Gaza, Israeli Zionism reproduces a genocide as infamous as that perpetrated by Hitler’s fascism between 1939 and 1945, the planet remembers the International Day for Prevention of Environmental Exploitation in War and Armed Conflict.

According to a publication on the United Nations (UN) website, humanity has always counted its war victims in terms of dead and wounded, as they are the most painful, but also in destroyed cities and ruined livelihoods. However, the environment has often been a forgotten victim.

War and armed conflict are a frequent cause of contaminated water wells, burned crops, felled forests, poisoned soils and slaughtered animals, and all of this has been justified to obtain a military advantage.

According to UN agencies, most armed conflicts in the last 60 years were related to the exploitation of natural resources, including fertile land and water.

For the international organization, it is essential to guarantee that the preservation of the environment is part of the strategies for the prevention of conflicts and for the maintenance of peace and its consolidation, since there can be no lasting harmony in the world if the natural resources that sustain the Livelihoods and ecosystems are destroyed.

Consequently, and to raise awareness of this momentous issue, the General Assembly declared November 6 as the International Day for the Prevention of Environmental Exploitation in War and Armed Conflict, and reaffirmed its commitment to the full implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals for all countries.

Cuba repudiates the atrocities of war, including the murder of Palestinians by the Israeli army, supported by the United States, and at the same time intensifies institutional and community work to defend the rational use of non-renewable resources and the environment through Task Life and practices such as sustainable agriculture, to live in harmony with nature.
