Next November 2nd and 3rd, the United Nations General Assembly will once again take into consideration the draft resolution calling for an end to the U.S. blockade against Cuba.
The U.S. government persists in ignoring the demands of the international community, and has intensified the blockade to unprecedented levels.
This has been a failed policy aimed at subverting the constitutional order in Cuba, but it causes unjustifiable shortages, pain, and suffering to Cuban families by limiting access to food, medicines, fuel, and other basic necessities.
