Growing support to movement against US blockade against Cuba

Washington, May 11 (Prensa Latina) The US No Embargo Cuba Movement, known as NEMO, broke a record on Facebook thanks to its 100,000 members, almost 37,000 publications and 700,000 comments, its organizers informed on Tuesday.

In addition, the page on that social network reported more than five million reactions, which, according to experts, distinguishes it as a very dynamic and active group, whose goal is that the US government lifts the unilateral sanctions imposed on Cuba for almost six decades, Dr. Manuel Tejeda, executive director of this project, said.

On the other hand, the Movement’s Digital Platform, NoEmbargoCuba.com, in Spanish NoBloqueoCuba.com, has already become one of the 100,000 most popular websites in the United States, ranked 79,700th, barely 45 days after its launching, according to the ranking of the specialized website Alexa.

NEMO is in the process of becoming a legal entity in order to apply for non-profit status, which will allow it to open an office in Washington, D.C., and raise funds to implement its educational activities, the activist added.

Despite the international community’s condemnation, this economic, commercial and financial blockade has been in force for almost six decades and, according to Cuban authorities, it is the main obstacle to the country’s development.

The Cuban foreign ministry will present the annual resolution to call for the end of the blockade at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on June 23, which had to be postponed in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since November 24, 1992, the UNGA has taken a stand against the coercive measure every year, which is reflected in an almost unanimous vote in favor of the elimination of the blockade.

In the most recent vote at the UN against this unilateral blockade in November 2019, that motion won the support of 187 of the 193 member countries.
