Because Cuba never surrendered, it stands strong and proud as an example and inspiration for the rest of the world.

The historic new relations between Cuba and the U.S. could prove to ease the full-court press the U.S. has maintained against the small island nation. Cuba has suffered under a blockade, invasion, sabotage, terror and destabilization campaigns led by the U.S.

In light of this, Cuba insists that before there is a normalization of relations between the two countries, the U.S. must end its 55-year-old blockade; return the illegally-held Guatanamo Bay; change its immigration policies toward Cuban migrants; stop transmitting radio propaganda into the country and attempting to build an opposition; and finally stop all attempts at regime change.
