Protests in over 50 cities around the world took place Sunday demanding an end of the United States economic, commercial, and financial blockade against Cuba.
Events took place in major U.S. cities such as New York, Washington, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Oakland, San Diego, San Francisco, Tampa, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Seattle, and Indianapolis.
The blockade is a burden for Cuba's development. Since 1992, year after year the United Nations General Assembly approves by large margins resolutions calling the US to stop the unilateral and illegal punishment of the Cuban people. To no avail.
The laws and sanctions that make up the blockade are an illegal attempt of regime change, infringing severe food and medicine shortages on Cuba's 11 million people.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the embargo was heavily strengthened in 2020, causing losses of over US$5 billion to the Cuban economy.
