The event was organized by the Berlin Peace Coordination and the Freundschaftsgesellschaft Berlin-Kuba e. V.

As early as 1960, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower imposed the blockade against Cuba that continues to this day. It was expanded year after year. In 1962 Kennedy declared it to be US law. In 1992 there was a drastic tightening up with the Torricelli Act 1 , in 1996 with the Helms-Burton Act another one (both under Bill Clinton) 2 . By 2019, however, all presidents would not implement sections 3 and 4 of this law. These sections are now used under Donald Trump.

US-Blockade gegen Kuba: 60 Texte gegen 60 Jahre

Today, the United States is using the corona crisis to destabilize Cuba by stopping deliveries including needed medicines, drastically restricting money transfers from relatives and putting pressure on the “international community” to take part in these shameful actions. Nevertheless, Cuba’s doctors are helping in heavily affected countries like Italy.

In protest against the inhumane measures that have been damaging the Cuban people for 60 years and enormously constraining their self-determined development, and out of solidarity with the people of Cuba, we are holding a public reading on Saturday, June 27, 2020 on Pariser Platz near the US Embassy .

With our event we would like to express our appreciation and solidarity for Cuba. A country that does not bend and perseveres in the face of pressure and subversion on the part of the United States and all countries (which reject this illegal blockade in the UN General Assembly every year, but still share it for fear of the US punishment) sticks to go his own way.
