On March 24, 1962, the US Treasury announced the prohibition of the entry into its territory of any product made, totally or partially, with products of Cuban origin, even if it was in a third country.

This was the logical consequence and complementation of Presidential Decree 3447 of February 3 of that year, which officially established the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba, signed by Federal Resolution 1085 of February 6 following, but that was a policy Practiced since the triumph of the Revolution.

Fifty-five years have passed since the official establishment of that genocidal measure of economic warfare, which still stands today, even though it does not meet its objective, since the Cuban people continue to support its socialist project. Highlighting this idea is not idle because it makes it possible to understand the reasons that prompted US sectors of power to take the turn they intend, using different methods, from December 17, 2014 to achieve the same purpose of a change of government and crush the revolution.

When President Obama announced Dec. 17 that he would then ask Congress to lift the blockade, he was careful to add that it would be done because he had not met the expected goals. This has been repeated by all the senior officials who have since referred to this issue, making clear a concept, evident to any reader who has hitherto followed us: the alienation of popular support for the Revolution, in order to provoke Its destruction – of what is not abjura – would try to achieve through other procedures.
