The demand of ending the blockade of Cuba expands in the US

Washington, Nov 1 (Prensa Latina) Different sectors of the United States express their rejection of the blockade against Cuba, as evidenced by over a hundred approved resolutions that call for lifting the blockade.

Some 90 municipal councils, county boards, legislatures, school boards, labor councils, unions and other organizations have asked President Joe Biden in recent years to put an end to the blockade.

The most recent demonstration of support for Cuba was recently presented by 25 New York state legislators, led by Senator Jabari Brisport, who urged Biden to lift “the cruel and unjustified economic blockade against Cuba.”

The legislators sent a letter to the president and the majority leader in the federal Senate, New York Democrat Charles Schumer, asking for immediate action. They also called for reversing the restrictions imposed by the Donald Trump administration (2017-2021), including the unfounded designation of Cuba as an alleged State sponsoring terrorism.

On June 22nd, 2023, the New York City Council approved a resolution asking “the Congress and the President of the United States” to end this policy of economic suffocation.

Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Hartford, Helena, Minneapolis, New Haven, Pittsburgh, St. Paul, Washington, D.C. and many other cities in the United States have made similar requests.

The state legislatures of Alabama, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota also endorsed resolutions calling for the end of the blockade against Cuba.
