US imperialist sanctions are unjust aggressive acts aimed at certain non-conforming states such as Venezuela, Cuba, Iran and North Korea. They hurt the working people by depriving them of necessities including food and medicine. They general accompany a strategy of interference and regime change. Whereas focused diplomatic, arms embargo and other limited sanctions may be justified against aggressors and repressive regimes, US imperialist sanctions, far from defending human rights, destroy communities and block advancements.
