 Statement from March/April's solidarity endorser, Natasha Lycia Ora Bannon, President of the National Lawyer’s Guild:

 

The issue of the decades-long blockade against Cuba is a human rights issue, one that involves both the basic right of travel for U.S. residents and the rights of the Cuban people to be free from economic violence.  The recent restrictions on travel only perpetuate the false myths that    millions of tourists over the years have proven erroneous. Cuba is one of the safest countries in the world, where human rights like healthcare, education and housing are guaranteed to every citizen.

 

Nations across the world have unanimously and repeatedly spoken: the embargo is inhumane, ineffective andobsolete.  The National Lawyers Guild joins the call of others seeking to hold our government accountable for cruel actions taken in our name. Call your congressional representatives now and demand an end to the embargo!

 

United our voices can pressure the U.S. Congress
to lift the blockade.


On December 17th, 2014 President Obama made history when he announced that the U.S. government would begin the process of normalizing relations with Cuba.  In his address, he referred to the U.S. government‘s policy towards Cuba has been, “archaic and a failure.”

For over 20 years, the United Nations has voted almost unanimously in favor of lifting the blockade/embargo.  The world community has made their voices clear on this issue, yet the U.S. government has done nothing to rectify this matter.

Now with Trump in office trying to impede the progress towards normalizing relations with Cuba, we must galvanize as much support as we can from the U.S. Congress!  We cannot simply focus on making our demands known to him, we must let the U.S. Congress know that we support:

  • Ending the blockade against Cuba;
  • Ending the Travel Ban and allowing unlimited travel to Cuba;
  • We believe in returning Guantanamo to Cuba;
  • Calling for an end to all attempts to create regime change in Cuba.
