Cuba has put forward the consequences of the US blockade on the the island, so that the world knows what is all about, focusing the negative effects of the strengthening of such a blockade during Trump administration.
The blockade of the US government against Cuba affected our economy between April 2018 and March 2019 by 4.343 billion dollars. The accumulated figure amounts to 138.843 billion. How much more could we do if they leave us alone? “.
In addition, the administration of Donald Trump has sharpened the aggression, which, in deed, has been implemented for 60 years.
On the other hand, there is a phrase by the Commander in Chief Fidel Castro which summarizes the attitude of the Cuban people before this genocidal policy of the empire: “The hardening of the blockade against Cuba multiplies the glory and honor of our people, we will not surrender.”
The intensification of U.S. meddling, through the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, seeks to subdue the Cuban people by preventing trade and exchange with third countries, which are also affected.
However, the Cuban government and people innovate, find alternatives to go on. And, we will keep on defending our truth and fighting the double standards of the US imperialism.
Now-a-days, Cuba is supported by almost the whole world in the fight against the US blockade on the island, by voting in favor of lifting the blockade.
