The Berlin Wall fell in 1989. The Soviet Union collapsed shortly thereafter. The Central American Civil wars are over. The cold war is long dead, yet the United States still enforces a relic of that cold war with an economic embargo against Cuba. With a new administration in the White House ushering in a era of renewed diplomacy and international cooperation, isnít it about time for the U.S. to do what most other countries around the world have done and normalize relations with its largest Caribbean neighbor?
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Americans defying what is now a half-century-old embargo. In the next few weeks I will join over 250 Americans traveling to Cuba. When we return on August 3rd, we will defy the ban on American citizens visiting Cuba. By doing this we hope to draw attention to what is now an outmoded, outdated and irrelevant blockade of the island nation. We want to convince the Obama administration that now is the time to get rid of the travel ban and embargo.
During last yearís presidential campaign, Barack Obama said he was willing to sit down with Cuban leaders without preconditions. Hopes were high for the change that Obama had promised during his campaign for the White House. He has, however, been slow to implement any significant policy shift towards Cuba since taking office, worrying those eager to see a new relationship with the island nation.
This is why we are challenging federal travel restrictions and protesting the slow pace of change. We are glad that the Obama Administration now allows Cuban Americans to visit their relatives much more easily and send remittances back to Cuba. But what about the rest of us?
Repubs man talk about the freedom but they hate the freedom why does republican hate the freedom so much?
