On May 5, 2021, 36 US sustainable agriculture and environmental organizations and farmers delivered a letter to President Biden urging him to immediately make good on his campaign promise “to reverse the failed Trump policies that inflicted harm on Cubans and their families.” They also call on Biden to use his executive power to fully remove the six-decade old economic blockade against Cuba, the longest trade embargo in modern history. Administration officials have signaled that Biden will backtrack on his campaign promise, ignoring a groundswell of public opinion, including an unprecedented letter to Biden by 79-Members of the US Congress, in favor of resuming Obama’s policy of normalization of relations with Cuba.
