#HelmsBurtonAct meant to re-colonize #Cuba: #Trump is tighten the #blockade and dissuade foreign investors in #Cuba / #UnblockCuba

0305-Caricatura-Título III de la Ley Helms-Burton

From the original post HERE

This law is more interventionist that the Platt Amendment of 1901 and the Reciprocity Treaty Cuba was forced to sign to be granted fictitious independence, at the beginning of the 20th century.

-It is an attack on the independence and dignity of Cuba, with openly annexation, colonialist intentions.

– The Helms-Burton Act was approved to provoke a change in Cuba’s political and economic system.

– Its Titles I and II include a series of requirements defining a transition government, and what constitutes a democratically elected government, according to the U.S.

– It constitutes intervention in the internal affairs of a sovereign country, in violation of international law.

– It is also an affront to the sovereignty of other countries of the world, given its intention to enforce U.S. jurisdiction extraterritoriality.

A distressing policy reversal on #Cuba Via The Washington Post / #HelmsBurtonAct

As faith leaders with deep ties to Cuban religious communities, we find the Trump administration’s reversal of more than two decades of U.S. policy, highlighted in the March 5 news article “U.S. tightens Cuban embargo, allowing legal claims for confiscated property,” distressing because it will harm the Cuban people. 

Church World Service (CWS), the National Council of Churches and congregations across the United States work closely with partner churches in Cuba. CWS has helped Cubans recover from disasters, including Hurricanes Michelle, Ivan, Dennis, Gustav, Ike, Sandy, Matthew and Irma. The welfare of the Cuban people and of all who experience severe hardship is a priority for us and should be for the White House.

CONSEQUENCES /The implementation of Title III would open a Pandora’s Box, and could have a boomerang effect, with complaints filed against the U.S. government itself by other states. Several other nations denounced the Helms-Burton Act, immediately following its approval, citing the extraterritoriality of provisions that could be implemented in their territory. The international reaction was not long in coming, and several laws and regulations were established in other countries as “antidotes” – including those in Canada dated October 22 of 1996; Mexico, October 23 that same year; CE No. 2271/96 approved by the European Union Council; and Spain’s Law 27 dated July 13,1998. Universal condemnation of the Helms-Burton has been repeatedly expressed in the United Nations General Assembly, with the votes of 189 nations during the last session, opposed only by the U.S. and Israel.

On March 19, the courts of the United States will accept the lawsuits filed against companies included in the List of Restricted Cuban Entities of the Department of State. The measure is part of the latest revision of the Helms-Burton Act, the backbone of the US embargo against Cuba.

The survival of an administration that is battling serious legal problems (in which President Donald Trump is immersed) resolves “to divert attention to the issue of migration and the demonization of the Democratic Party,” Cuban political scientist Arturo López-Levy told Sputnik.

#Cuba cable ski park #LetsGoTravel2Cuba

With five towers, seven hook up points, capacity for up to 110 skiers per day (12 simultaneously), and an area of more than 7,000 square meters, the water skiing cable-way, located in the northern Jardines del Rey resort, will contribute to the diversification of Cuban tourism products.

A cable skiing system makes it possible to learn and practice water skiing and wake-boarding at a constant speed, over a course that covers a distance of up to 530 meters. The skier’s rope and handle are pulled by a horizontal electrically-driven cable, up to ten meters above sea level.

According to Lilliam Rangel, sales specialist of the CON-IMPEX HGmbH & Co. KG Group, responsible for the construction of this new attraction, along with the Cuban extra-hotel enterprise Palmares S.A, located southeast of Cayo Guillermo, the contract for the project was signed at the end of 2014. The first materials arrived in March 2015 and construction and assembly works began last September.

– March 17, 1960:

Then U.S. President, Dwigth D. Eisenhower, approved the so-called Program of Covert Action, designed to destroy the Cuban Revolution. Among other aspects, the CIA was tasked with setting up a radio station broadcasting political propaganda. On May 17, 1960, 1160 khz frequency Radio Cuba Libre (Radio Swan) was picked up for the first time on the island.

– September 22, 1981:

President Ronald Reagan singed executive order 12323, establishing the “Presidential Commission on Broadcasting to Cuba,” tasked with developing a recommended plan for radio broadcasting intended for transmission to Cuba, such as Radio Martí.

– May 20, 1985:

Radio Martí hits the airwaves for the first time, as part of a plan by the staunchly anti-Cuban Ronald Reagan administration, to launch an illegal radio station able to reach the island and incite a popular uprising against the Revolution.

– March 27, 1990:

Following the failure of subversive radio schemes, TV Martí was launched, costing the U.S. taxpayer millions of dollars and violating international norms. Dubbed “the TV no one watches,” the signal was effectively blocked by Cuban authorities across the entire island.

– 2004:
The Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba or Plan Bush is created by the George W. Bush administration to identify additional ways to hasten an overthrow of the “Cuban regime.”
Regarding technology, the plan proposes, among other things to “Encourage willing third-country governments to create public access Internet facilities in their missions in Cuba.”
Other initiatives included expanding “the distribution of information and facilitate pro-democracy activities,” and “Greater access to these types of equipment” in order to do so.
