On 17 December activists from Rock Around the Blockade and the Revolutionary Communist Group took part in an international day of action called by the 1 Cent 4 Cuba campaign. For their action on the day, RATB and RCG supporters picketed banks that are extraterritorially implementing the US blockade of Cuba by illegally complying with US sanctions in Britain. The main target was Metro Bank, who recently closed customer's accounts after blocking transactions to Cuba. 17 December is an important day for friends of socialist Cuba, as it was the day when the Cuban 5 were released in 2014. Here are pictures and videos from across the country:
Santa gave Lloyds Bank a lump of coal in Newcastle upon Tyne and put them on the 'naughty list' because they are complying with US sanctions and shut down the 1c4cuba bank account.
