Europa por cuba

The Europe for Cuba channel has called for a worldwide media marathon April 2-3 to denounce, on all communications platforms possible, the U.S. blockade of Cuba.

According to Prensa Latina, the solidarity group urged Cubans and persons of goodwill around the world to raise their voices to condemn the economic, commercial and financial siege imposed by Washington on the Caribbean country for more than 60 years.

"On social networks like YouTube and Telegram, radio, television and alternative media, let us unite our voices in a 24-hour counter-hegemonic offensive," was the call made by the channel's moderators, José Antonio Toledo and Patricia Pérez, announcing the initiative, Prensa Latina reported.

They recalled that Cuba is not alone in the struggle against the blockade, a unilateral policy repudiated almost unanimously by the international community, in the United Nations General Assembly, with 29 resolutions adopted by that body since 1992.

The call emphasizes that the intention is to maintain posts and broadcasts uninterruptedly, with the participation of a diverse number and broad range of media by friends of Cuba across the planet.


  • Over more than six decades of its application, the blockade has been tightened at moments of greatest vulnerability for the Cuban people.
  • The U.S. government identified in the crisis generated by COVID-19 an opportune time to reinforce its hostile policy against Cuba, which reveals its particularly inhuman face and the marked interest in taking advantage of the economic recession that accompanies the pandemic to promote social instability and force the Cuban people to surrender through hunger and hardship.
  • At current prices, the accumulated damages caused by the blockade have reached 147,853,300,000 dollars over more than half a century.
  • Considering the depreciation of the dollar against the value of gold on the international market, the blockade has caused quantifiable damages of more than 1,377,998,000,000 dollars.
