Germans Protest US Blockade against Cuba

Germans Protest US Blockade against CubaBerlin, Jun 20. -Hundreds of activists with the Cuba solidarity movement in Germany demonstrated outside the Brandenburg Gate to protest the US economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on Cuba for over 50 years.

The rally, under the slogan "50 Readings against 50 Years of Blockade," was organized by the Berlin-Cuba Friendship Association.

"We chose a centrall-located site in Berlin, the Pariser Platz (Paris Square), frequented by many people who go for a walk there, to tell people about Washingtonâ�Ös policy against Cuba," an activist told Prensa Latina.

The Pariser Platz is located just between the Brandenburg Gate and the U.S. Embassy.

The Berlin-Cuba Friendship Association carried out a similar action in 2001 on the 40th anniversary of the U.S. blockade against Cuba.

This time, 50 well-known individuals and friends of Cuba read articles, essays and poems to express their rejection of the U.S. blockade. (Prensa Latina)
