the US government is organising an online discussion about its new measures against Cuba, with the participation of Carlos Gutierrez, Secretary of Commerce of the United States, and co-chair of the Bush administrations "Assistance to a Free Cuba".

Nest week the United Nations will once again vote unanimously to condemn the US blockade of Cuba. Instead of listening to international
Please use this opportunity to raise these issues directly with US Government authorities, to ask questions, to demand explanations and to express your condemnation of their actions.
