Analysis of what Cuba would be able to do without US blockade

Analysis of what Cuba would be able to do without US blockade

Santo Domingo, Aug 16 (Prensa Latina) Dominican poet and writer Rafael Nino Féliz published today an article in Acento newspaper, in which he wonders what Cuba would have been without the economic blockade imposed by the United States.

In the text, Nino refers to a series of statistical data so that ‘the reader draws his own conclusions, regardless of the opinion of each one about a reality that draws so much attention to the whole world’.

He began by giving an explanation about the origin of the unilateral siege against the island, decreed by US President John Kennedy in 1962, three years after the 1959 Revolution that removed dictator Fulgencio Batista from government, who had come to power through a coup.

On the other hand, the intellectual compares the previous figures with those shown by the country after the Revolution and the end of Batista, where infant mortality is four per thousand live births; life expectancy of 78.4 years, seven more than the world average and schooling of 98 percent.
