We evaluate the present scope of the US blockade and its effects in Europe. We evaluate the changes made during the Obama era. We analyze what can be expected of the next US president that will be elected Tuesday the 8th of November. We take into account developments of European and Cuban cooperation and the EU Common Position on Cuba. We make proposals for the continued campaigning against the blockade. We make campaign plans demanding that the USA returns Guantánamo to Cuba.




Cuba is a beacon of humanism in our world plagued by conflicts. Cuba’s participatory democracy, social gains and culture. Cuba’s international solidarity. Cuba’s continuous development in spite of the blockade. Our efforts to develop our societies’ contacts with Cuba. Our work to spread knowledge based on facts about Cuba, to counteract the propaganda and demonization spread by western mainstream media.
