Stay Away From Cuba, Biden – End the Embargo!

It’s time to end the Cuba embargo

When it comes to Cuba policy, President Biden is pandering to Trump’s base! Over the past weeks he reneged on a campaign pledge to get rid of Trump’s Cuba sanctions, he imposed new sanctions on Cuban leaders and his advisors met with right-wing Cuban Americans. 

As the White House caves to the right wing, Congress might be doing the same! The Nation magazine reported that a bill to lift restrictions on remittances that Cuban Americans can send to their families in Cuba was blocked by House Democratic leadership! We need to let our Senators and Representatives know that starving the Cuban people to curry favor with Cuban American voters in Florida is inhumane and unacceptable!.

Click here to send a message to Congress showing your support for ending the embargo and normalizing relations with Cuba!

There are two bills in Congress that those of us who want to be good neighbors to Cuba should support: HR. 3625 the United States – Cuba Relations Normalization Act, and S.1694 the Freedom to Export to Cuba Act. Both of these bills would ease the cruel blockade that has been illegally and immorally punishing ordinary Cubans for over six decades.

It was decades of grassroots pressure and building public support that pushed President Obama to begin normalizing relations with Cuba. That support still exists: poll after poll shows Americans want to end the embargo. The grassroots has been doing its job, raising funds for syringes, as well as holding caravans and rallies across the country in solidarity with the Cuban people. Now it’s time for Congress to step up. 

Earlier this week, Medea, Tighe and I went to the White House during a right-wing Cuba rally with a simple message: build bridges of love and help Cuban families by ending the blockade. We were immediately surrounded and threatened by a mob of extremists, but the most shocking thing was how filled they were with hate. Unfortunately, these are the people who the Biden administration and Democratic leadership are listening to, instead of listening to those who supported President Obama’s political opening. Together, we can make them listen to all of us when we say: “Let Cuba live!”

In radical solidarity,
Leonardo, Medea, Teri and Michelle – codepink.org

President Biden: Listen to the world & end the Cuba embargo!

The July 11 protests in Cuba can only be understood in the context of the cruel and illegal U.S. embargo. Help us push back against the narrative that calls for intervention and more sanctions on Cuba!

  1. Roger Gjerstad seier:

    He he, USA har nå abnorm gjeld og har ikke råd til å holde militære over nær sagt hele verden.
    De forsøker derfor å framprovosere alle typer konflikter over alt , og slik for å holde et lokk over sine kommende økonomiske kriser. Verdens økologiske krise banker i tillegg , allerede på «døren» i mange stater. Å få slutt på embargoen mot sosialistiske Cuba , kan vi kreve og bør kreve ! , men det er dessverre umulig for USA med sitt ideologiske fundament å endre dette. Taperne blir de fattige i USA, da USA er et system der en aksepterer de rikeste, et religiøst system og en mangel på en sosialitisk forståelse.
    Dette blir styggere og styggere for mange mennesker i USA.
    ( Se alle krigene USA har femprovosert og deltatt i , etter 1945 og les Klassekampen onsdag 28 juli der den tidligere norske hæroffiseren med generalløytnants grad- R. Mood, sier om Norges aktivitet ! i Afghanistan , at det er klart at : » Vestens forsøk på stabilisering og nasjonsbygging er et ydmykende nederlag for oss. » – Det sier «krystallklart» noe om den USA-dominerte og totalt unødvendige krigen i Afghanistan. )
    Vår kamp blir helt riktig å kreve at alle krever, at embargoen mot Cuba straks oppheves, noe som åpner for en positiv debatt, nettopp i USA.

    Flott initiativ Ivar !!
    Roger
