This slightly edited statement was issued July 12, 2021.
The Venceremos Brigade is in solidarity with Cuba and the Cuban people who are enduring the coronavirus pandemic on top of the U.S. Blockade. The United States and its blockade literally do not allow Cuba to trade with other countries to receive basic resources like food, medical supplies and equipment. Because of the blockade, Cubans are experiencing devastating shortages of their basic necessities during a period of skyrocketing coronavirus cases.
The Biden administration is instigating a soft-coup in Cuba fueled by their continuation of Trump-era, anti-Cuba policies on one hand and on the other hand, releasing “neutral” statements denying responsibility for the current shortages and blackouts. In 2021 alone, Biden dispersed $250 million to fund “subversion” in Cuba.
We are and we continue to be steadfast in our work to back the Cuban Revolution and their ongoing struggle for dignity and liberation in the face of U.S. repression.
