"Advances have not moved ahead at the same speed in the economic area, because the blockade remains in force, and despite measures taken by the administration of President Obama - which are positive , but not enough - significant restrictions remain on exportations from the United States to Cuba, above all for the key branches of the economy."

Let Cuba Live is a Maine-based committee organized in 1992 to promote respect for Cuba's sovereignty and independence. Let Cuba Live works for an end to the U.S. blockade against Cuba; an end to travel restrictions that prohibit U.S. citizens from visiting Cuba; normalization of relations between the U.S. and Cuba; closure of the Guantanamo Naval Base; and freedom for the Cuban Five.

“I join the majority of fellow citizens of the United States and call for the U.S. Congress to respect our expressed will to remove the blockade against Cuba that impedes full, respectful, and productive diplomatic relations between the two countries and prevents free and fruitful people-to-people relations.”
“[The Cuban Trade Congress Se Puede Multos Juntos] gave me a sense of how real and how spiritual the struggle for socialism is in Cuba, how it is energized not only by necessities of physical survival but by love and the profound conviction that by working together we can resolve our contradictions, create a better and more just world for ourselves and our children, and advance the evolution of the human race….” ~ Grace Lee Boggs (1915-2015)
“The thaw in US-Cuba relations may have begun but Cuba is still frozen out by an economic and financial blockade that causes untold suffering for a people fighting for the right to determine their own future.”
