Cuba’s Humanitarian Crisis

Cuba’s Humanitarian Crisis

Nine years ago, on December 17, 2014, jubilation swept through the city of Havana when Presidents Barack Obama and Raúl Castro announced that they would normalize US-Cuban relations, after 55 years of hostility. Church bells rang, cars honked their horns, and people hugged each other in the streets. Today, the mood in the city is one of desperation. The economy is spiraling downward, and US policy is exacerbating the growing humanitarian crisis.

Cuba’s placement on the State Sponsor of Terrorism list has led to damaging consequences

Three years ago this month, as a parting shot mere days before leaving office, Donald Trump placed Cuba on the State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT) list, triggering a range of new sanctions against the island nation.

Caricom has raised the issue of sanctions against Venezuela, the blockade against Cuba, and the view that more needs to be done to stem the flow of guns into the region.

Caricom chairman Roosevelt Skerrit, who hosted a press conference at the conclusion of the 45th general meeting at the Hyatt last night, said that regional leaders raised these and other issues with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken when he held a caucus session with them yesterday.

UN forcefully hits at US blockade of Cuba

UN forcefully hits at US blockade of Cuba

BY W. T. WHITNEY JR.

Nothing on the horizon now threatens the end of the U.S. economic blockade of Cuba. Critical voices inside the United States and beyond fall flat; nothing is in the works, it seems.

Recently, however, the United Nations put forth a denunciation that carries unusual force, mainly because of the UN’s legal authority and its practical experience in Cuba.
