On October 26, 2016, the UN voted unanimously to condemn the U.S. embargo against Cuba. For the first time in 25 years the U.S. abstained from the vote!
Here at Global Exchange, we are thrilled.
While the UN vote is only symbolic, it sent an important and powerful message that the U.S. Administration remains committed to normalizing relations with our island neighbor.
Help us keep up the momentum to end the embargo and 50-year blockade. Write President Obama today to thank him for his work to open relations with Cuba.
The embargo against Cuba has gone on too long. The blockade must end.
Visit Cuba with Global Exchange on a People-to-People Reality Tour to learn about the impacts of the blockade and witness Cuba at a crossroads as relations begin to normalize. Meet the people, learn the facts and make a difference.
Cuba and the Cuban people have suffered too long, it is time to end the embargo and fully normalize relations with our neighbor!
