The Wisconsin Coalition to Normalize Relations with Cuba, Peace Action Wisconsin, and Veterans for Peace Milwaukee have joined with over 130 groups, including the National Council of Churches, the American Public Health Association, Oxfam America, and MoveOn.org, to sign a letter to President Biden urging the administration to abstain in the upcoming vote on June 23 before the U.N. General Assembly condemning the U.S. embargo against Cuba.
Every year, nearly every country in the U.N. votes to support the resolution and against the US-imposed embargo. In 2016, the Obama administration broke with 25 years of United States’ opposition to the resolution by abstaining on the U.N. vote, and these organizations, organized by ACERE (Alliance for Cuba Engagement and Respect), call on President Biden to follow Obama’s example.
