This is a round-up of some of the marches, rallies, and car caravans that took place in more than a dozen U.S. cities, as well as Canada and other countries, on July 25, 2021. Protesters demanded an end to Washington’s 60-year-old economic war on Cuba, which has been recently intensified with 243 new sanctions imposed under the Trump administration that are now enforced by U.S. president Joe Biden. These punitive measures are aimed at strangling the Caribbean nation economically and increasing the hardships caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
This statement released July 12, 2021, by the International US-Cuba Normalization Committee “denounces in the strongest terms the latest campaign of bipartisan Washington to subvert and politically destabilize the Cuban government.”
