Richard Burgon, also member of the House of Commons spoke on Monday in a virtual event organized by the Campaign for Solidarity with Cuba (CSC) in the United Kingdom in order to debate on recent unrest rolled out in Cuba, economic war touched off by Washington as well as the role played by social networks and media outlets.
In this regard, Burgon recalled that the blockade imposed by the United States for over 60 years is expressly aimed to cause hunger and despair in Cuba.
Grahame Mark Morris, British Labor Party politician, also pointed out that the core cause of Cuba’s food and medicine shortages is the unilateral US blockade, which was tightened after former president Donald trump imposed 243 new sanctions.
Morris, who chairs the Multiparty Parliamentary Group for Cuba, also highlighted that over 50 British lawmakers recently signed a letter asking UK government and urging President Joe Biden to enhance and normalize relations with Cuba.
