Y asked to end the locks unilaterally imposed by the United States against those two nations, ”said the host of the news program Revista Informativa Buenos Días, from the news channel Caribe, while showing a tweet from Fernández’s press account on camera.
“The blockades are doing incalculable damage to Cuba and Venezuela,” he read between Fernández’s statements. In addition, he indicated that the referent of the Frente de Todos had demanded the lifting of “the unilateral coercive measures applied by the government of Washington ”.
The zócalo of the newscast also supported the editorial line. “International voices join in support for the people and the Cuban revolution“, He said.
They also replicated these arguments on social media. “Voices from different nations joined to defend Cuba from the attacks that are being carried out against the Caribbean nation in the media these days,” they posted with the image of the Argentine president.

The statements of Alberto Fernández
Alberto Fernández had spoken on Tuesday, in dialogue with Radio 10, on the serious social and political crisis of the island.
“I don’t know the dimension of the problem in Cuba. Yes I am clear that, yes we are humanitarianly concerned about Cuba, let’s finish with the locks and also in Venezuela. There is nothing more inhumane in a pandemic than to block a country ”, were the words of the President.
“At the G20 I asked for the blockades in the world to end. The one that suffers from it is not a government, but the people. In the middle of a pandemic maintaining blockades is the least humanitarian that exists ”, he reiterated in the talk.
