Letter to Biden from the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity

February 17, 2021

Dear President Biden,

Six years ago, on December 17, 2014, President Obama announced, together with Cuban President Raúl Castro, the re-establishment of bilateral relations unilaterally interrupted by the United States in 1960.

The historic announcement filled both nations with a lot of joy and was applauded by the international community. We believed, with well-founded hope, that a new era was beginning, leaving behind six decades of hostility that caused enormous suffering to the Cuban people and delayed for more than half a century the possibilities of economic, financial, commercial, cultural, medical, educational and tourist exchanges with the American people and their government.

Now in the midst of the pandemic, these 450 families have nowhere to go, with no work or school.
