La Jornada calls U.S. to lift blockade, not to profit from Hurrricane

Mexico City, Oct 4 (Prensa Latina) Mexican daily La Jornada on Tuesday called on Joe Biden´s administration to lift its hostile blockade against Cuba due to ravages caused by Hurricane Ian and not to profit from this tragedy.

The Mexican newspaper pointed out that, under such circumstances, the most radical Cuban community in the United States, represented by the extremist lawmakers Marco Rubio and María Elvira Salazar, seeks to capitalize on this tragedy in Cuba to conduct destabilizing actions and later blame national authorities for what happened.

Such extremist politicians not only asked the White House to oppose sending assistance to Cuba, but also seek to whip up Cubans´ unrest by bringing about an insurrection, the newspaper added.

In this context, the President Joe Biden administration should suspend the genocidal blockade the United States has kept unchanged against Cuba for over 60 years in order to ease the extremely harsh conditions in which Cuba has started off the recovery works.

Hurricane Ian left Cuba with deaths and severe material destruction in infrastructure and agriculture, as well as displacement of tens of thousands of victims and, in addition, it caused a country-wide blackout, which has been recovering in an agonizing and exasperating pace.

It is critical for the Latin American governments to coordinate, through the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, extraordinary actions to support a brotherly people that has not hesitated to assist others in emergency situations and that today, in the most unfavorable circumstances, remains indomitable.
