From the UK we will continue to denounce the hostile US policy towards Cuba under the disguised complicity of Western governments, which constitutes an obstacle to achieving greater social benefits and prosperity. The blockade is a criminal policy that affects all Cuban families and the development of the country.
In an interview with Sputnik, Daniesky Acosta denounced the extraterritorial effect of the US blockade against Cuba, which was once again demonstrated in the difficulties experienced in the most recent campaign organized by the Association "Cubanos en UK" to raise funds. Two digital microfinance platforms, Crowdfunding and JustGiving, closed the pages where donations were being collected for the purchase of syringes to support the vaccination program against COVID-19 in Cuba. According to the association's coordinator, the closure took place without warning or explanation.
