Demand in the United States the lifting of the embargo against Cuba

The Bridges of Love Movement will hold a caravan today in the city of Jacksonville, Florida, to demand the lifting of the economic, financial and commercial blockade that the United States has imposed against Cuba for more than 60 years.

This was stated by its leader, Carlos Lazo, who added that Cuban-Americans and other defenders of the right of the Antillean nation to its sovereignty will join the claim.

This action is added to others that have taken place throughout the week, such as the great march held the day before in New York, and organized as a prelude to the vote on the resolution in the UN General Assembly on the need to put an end to the unilateral siege of Washington, to be held between November 2 and 3.

The walk, carried out from the iconic Times Square to the United Nations headquarters, was joined by members of a coalition made up of more than 100 organizations in solidarity with the island that, since last September, have been carrying out activities together under the slogan “UN Vote 4 Cuba”.

Cuban-American activist Carlos Lazo explained, for his part, that the call to action emphasizes three main demands that unite a broad sector of Americans and peace-loving people around the world.

The demands include the end of the blockade, the removal of Cuba from the list of countries that sponsor terrorism, and the lifting of coercive measures that prevent travel to the island and hinder economic transactions.

Likewise, the Codepink organization launched a new request in which it asks the president of the United States, Joe Biden, and the ambassador of that country to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, to move towards the normalization of relations with the Caribbean nation.

Other events held were held in the city of Hartford, capital of the state of Connecticut, where members of movements such as Nemo (NoEmbargoCuba), the Greater Hartford Peace Council and the Connecticut Peace and Solidarity Coalition held a demonstration to call for the lifting of the punitive policy.

When presenting the report on the impact of said fence on the island, the Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodríguez, recently denounced that the losses amounted to three thousand 806 million dollars between August 2021 and February 2022.

The existence of the blockade is an undeniable reality, no one could seriously affirm that it does not exist or is a mere pretext, it is tangible and reaches and harms every family in the Caribbean country, Cubans living in the United States, American citizens and companies from all over the world. the planet, he said.
