… with the same straight that faces the strike of a hurricane

On the night of September 9th the frightening Hurricane Irma discharge all his wrath on Cuba.

The powerful Category 5 hurricane (Catastrophic damage will occur: A high percentage of framed homes will be destroyed, with total roof failure and wall collapse. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last for weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months) with sustained maximum winds of 250 km per hour (185 miles per hour) chose the keys in the north of the island, plagued by excellent beaches and hotels, and swept everything in its wake after destroying the beautiful Caribbean with its paradisiacal landscapes.

Same day, in the morning, when all the forecasts showed that the natural phenomenon was heading towards the island, Trump also unloaded his anger on Cuba by renewing (by 11 time, before him 10 American presidents have renewed it) the Trading with the Enemy Act – statute from 1917 that sustains the blockade:

Cuba has been devastated by Irma, now it tries to recover from its ravages, an exercise of enviable strength that repeats the Cuban people every time it receives the unconcerned visit of a natural phenomenon, for it counted not only with the support of the Cuban revolutionary government , but also with the support of  some countries and NGO that return to the island all the solidarity that she has given to them.

Cuba is also punished each year by each American president for choosing a different path without bending or accepting pressure.

But Cuba rises again claiming to live as best it seems to push the empire’s boot to one side with the same straight that faces the strike of a hurricane.
