Request to Biden, friendship and solidarity behind a letter

Washington, Jan 5 (Prensa Latina) The request to remove Cuba from the State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT) list and for President Joe Biden to fulfill his campaign promises is clear, US activist Merriam Ansara said.

A member of the Massachusetts Peace Action Board, Ansara spoke to Prensa Latina about her organization’s efforts behind the recent letter sent to Biden by the Massachusetts delegation to the federal Congress.

With satisfaction, she noted that the result is “part of a campaign initiated eight months ago to unify the state of Massachusetts in calling for Cuba to be removed from the SSOT.

The call by our representatives in the federal Congress to President Biden is the first step, she added.

“We will now ask our elected representatives and senators in the state legislature to send a similar letter to Biden, and then we will ask our governor,” she anticipated.

We will work so that Massachusetts, a solidly Democratic state with some two centuries of economic, scientific, medical, social and cultural ties with Cuba, can restore those ties, first and foremost by taking Cuba off that arbitrary list, Ansara pointed out.
