Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Robert Aderholt released the following statement to show his support for the people of Cuba.


“Havana, Cuba is just 830 miles from Haleyville, Alabama.  That’s closer than New York, Denver or Portland.  The people in Havana are beginning to rise up against their totalitarian government and I stand with them.  They are demanding their freedom.  Socialist and communist forms of government promise a lot, but they always bring darkness, pain and suffering.  A free Cuba could unleash great human flourishing - economically, culturally, and spiritually. America must always stand shoulder to shoulder with freedom loving people who want to break free from the oppressive yoke that is socialism, communism and totalitarianism.”
