Our battle is not only a battle for survival, to survive for the sake of surviving, no; it is a battle to participate in the fight for a better world, to participate in that fight together with the world.’ Fidel Castro, 24 August 1998.
Four days before the US presidential elections, we discuss the difficulties facing the Cuban people, with the global Covid-19 pandemic and the tightening of the US blockade, and how the Revolution continues to resist. In 2019 alone, the Trump administration introduced 86 new sanctions against Cuba; to starve the country of revenue, scare off foreign partners, create scarcity, and obstruct oil shipments from Venezuela. The US blockade cost Cuba $4 billion last year. The Trump administration has increased attacks on Cuba to secure victory in the key-state of Florida.
