By BBN Staff: The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has issued an official statement in light of the ongoing civil unrest in Cuba.

The 14-member bloc of countries said on Monday that it has taken note of the protests taking place in Cuba brought about by socio-economic challenges, further exacerbated by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of natural hazards.

“The Community calls for the cessation of violence and vandalism and for a return to calm and peaceful assembly and dialogue,” CARICOM said. “The Community reiterates its calls for the immediate lifting of the trade, financial and economic sanctions as recently reiterated by the United Nations General Assembly.”

CARICOM nations were numbered among the 184 countries at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) last month that voted to end the economic embargo that the United States has placed on the US. That resolution has been voted on 29 times at the UNGA with the majority of the world’s countries voting each time that the embargo should be ended. However, it remains in place with the most significant progress towards any kind of reprieve being under the administration of former President Barack Obama. That progress was later revered by his successor President Donald Trump, who then placed an additional 243 economic measures against Cuba.
