Human misery in Cuba not fault of repressive government, but 60-yr US economic blockade of country

U.S. Embargo and U.S. Sanctions on Cuba, Saturday, July 24th, in Spring Hill, Florida, 10 AM to 12 noon

Two antiwar and social justice groups fault US Congress, Republicans and Democrats, and Cuban-American communities in Florida for the cause of recent protests in Cuba.

Food and Rx shortages, power failures, a faltering economy, are all due to America’s 60 years of destructive blockades, creating human misery in Cuba—and not the fault of a repressive government!

Spring Hill, Florida (Hernando County), July 23, 2021:

A two-hour demonstration to protest the American embargo of Cuba will occur on Saturday, July 24th, from 10 AM to 12 noon, in Spring Hill, Florida, at the corner of the Weeki Wachee State Park (State road 50 and US Highway 19).

Two antiwar and social justice groups have scheduled the protest to counteract the false political and public outcry that the human misery suffered by Cuban citizens on the Caribbean island is the fault of a tyrannical and repressive government. The protest will put the blame solely on American foreign policy and its 60 years of a destructive "economic blockade with the sole purpose to impose human hardship by denying money and supplies to Cuba, to decrease monetary and real wages, to bring about hunger [and] desperation to overthrow the government of Cuba” [This quote was from the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, Lester Mallory, in an official U.S. Government April, 1960 memorandum].


Organizers Brian Moore and Harriet Heywood encourage those interested to attend the demonstration, with or without signs. Moore has prepared signs that say the following:

1) Stop U.S. Embargo and U.S. Sanctions on Cuba!

2) Stop the U.S. economic blockade of Cuba!

3) Democrats/Republicans responsible for Cubans’ starvation, illness, no $$, no jobs!

4) Cuban-Americans supported U.S. Embargo for 50 years, causing Cuba’s misery!

5) Demand American reparations $$ for Cuban citizens “in Cuba."

6) Advocate a Marshall Plan for Cuba!
