Belgian filmmaker, activist Anne Delstanche
Brussels, March 10 (RHC)-- Belgian filmmaker and activist Anne Delstanche has urged US President Joe Biden to work to end his country's blockade against Cuba, so that the Caribbean island can develop without that obstacle.
In statements to Prensa Latina news agency, a member of Belgium's 'Friends of Cuba' association noted that the economic, commercial and financial blockade in force for 60 years is meaningless and applies to a small country that does not harm anyone.
The Belgian filmmaker and activist insisted that this aggressive policy, tightened by former President Donald Trump (2017-2021) with more than 230 new coercive measures, has had an impact on all fields of Cuban society.
The blockade has implications in everything and it is one of the oldest and strongest such measures globally, said the filmmaker, who considered important to spread Cuba's reality and the effects of Washington's aggressiveness.
The activist also demanded Cuba's immediate, unconditional removal from the unilateral US list of so-called State sponsors of terrorism, an inclusion made by the Trump administration shortly before leaving the White House on January 20.
