On February 25, a top official in Joe Biden’s administration said US sanctions imposed on Russia following the invasion of Ukraine were also intended to hit Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua. That month marked the sixtieth anniversary of the US blockade of Cuba, introduced in February 1962 by President John F. Kennedy’s Embargo on All Trade with Cuba. The embargo of Cuba constitutes the longest and most comprehensive set of sanctions in modern history. It is not merely a legal or a bilateral issue, as proponents claim. It is a key instrument in the US toolkit to pursue regime change on the island. It is an act of war, a violation of human rights designed to obstruct Cuban development, to undermine its example as a revolutionary alternative, and to intentionally cause suffering among the Cuban people.

Cuba has been under US embargo for 60 years. It’s time for that to end

From: The Guardian

By: David Adler

There is no embargo on Cuba.” This bold claim – made by Florida senator Marco Rubio on the floor of the US Senate last July – has quickly hardened into conventional wisdom across aisles of US Congress and among Rubio’s base of support in the Cuban diaspora.

Those are the only two options.”

Cuba warns European Parliament against becoming ‘a pawn of Washington’

From: Morning Star

CUBA has condemned a “a dangerous politicised move” by a group in the European Parliament that it says is turning the body into a pawn of Washington.


The European People’s Party group has tabled a motion for debate on human rights on the socialist island entitled Government crackdown on protests and citizens in Cuba.

It refers to the US-funded instability on the socialist island in June, when a co-ordinated social media campaign attempted to stir up anti-government sentiment.

US blockade of Cuba equals genocide

From: Morning Star

ON SEPTEMBER 7, President Joe Biden, amid an escalation of US hostility toward Cuba, extended the Trading with the Enemy Act for another year.

This is the law that serves as the basis of the US blockade and has been renewed annually by every US president since Kennedy first imposed the cruel and punitive policy in 1962.

London

One of our supporters from London summarised the day’s activities: «In south London we held a speakout against poverty, inequality, austerity and evictions today and held up the example of Cuba as what is possible when you break free from capitalist, comparing Cuba’s inspiring revolutionary response to the pandemic with Britain’s murderous one.»
