Both food and medicine shortages in Cuba is direct consequence of 62 years of cruel and hostile blockade, according to a statement sent to Prensa Latina by Manuel Tejeda and José Oro, members of NEMO´s board of directors.
NEMO -No Embargo Cuba Movement- recalled that to this scenario are added 243 additional sanctions imposed by former President Donald Trump (1017-2021) and cowardly sustained by Joe Biden amid a fierce pandemic.
The US movement made it clear that such a situation is the root cause of discontent that led to recent riots in Cuba, which were financed, orchestrated and manipulated by US agencies and Miami ultra-right organizations.
Those who encourage such events mean to cause more Covid-19 infections, more despair, and convey the wrong image of chaos and ‘lack of control’ that enables them to justify a military invasion under supposed ‘humanitarian’ purposes, according to the text.
NEMO´s activists also condemned the Biden administration´s role and stance, the complicity of the State Department and the mdia hype involvement that publish fake videos trying to confuse international public opinion.
NEMO also condemned the powerful misleading disinformation campaign to make believe that the Cuban government does not accept humanitarian aid, ‘when this is a vulgar lie, since what Cuba does not accept is a conditioned ‘aid’, manipulated and ignorant of the country´s laws.’
