The US economic blockade of Cuba has been in place for a staggering 56 years. For the last 25 years this blockade has been condemned in an annual vote in the UN General Assembly. In recent years this vote has been almost unanimous in favor of Cuba. During the last two years of his administration President Obama took some limited steps to ease the blockade. President Trump partially reversed these steps.
Come and hear directly from the Cuban representatives:
How Cuba has suffered under the blockade.
What it has achieved despite the blockade..
How it is recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Irma.
What we have to do in the US to finally end the blockade.
