"Cuba: given the possibility of Biden easing the blockade, as Obama did, counterrevolutionaries staged protests in Havana. They want + tightening the lock. People took to the streets against Miami's paid bands. No threat to the Revolution!"
World-renowned Brazilians like Frei Betto, Fernando Morais, Eric Nepomuceno, Chico Buarque, and João Pedro Stédile are leading the initiative to help the Cuban people as the U.S. blockade severely limits the country´s ability to purchase goods amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
