This Day. Kennedy launched the blockade of Cuba

Today, 59 years ago, President John F. Kennedy emitted the presidential proclamation 3447, with which the long history of the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba began. Later in the 1990s, this hostile policy would become codified as law. This has caused a degenerative impact, with multi-million losses affecting all areas of the life of the Cuban family. More than 70 per cent of the Cuban population has been born under the negative impacts of this policy. The blockade lacks moral support, is illegal, and has almost unanimous rejection of the international community and the American and Canadian peoples. #UnblockCuba
