Wtitten by PL – May 10, 2017 — Cuba’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Minrex) and the National Design Office (ONDI) launched today a call to the NoMásBloqueo poster competition as a platform to join the call for a cease of that U.S. measure.
According to the MINREX Director of Communication and Image, José Carlos Rodríguez, the 15 best works will be part of an exhibition in Havana that will then travel to New York and Washington, and it expected to be exhibited in other capitals of the world.
This is a necessary contest because the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed against Cuba by the United States remains in force despite some measures taken in the last stage of the mandate of Barack Obama, he said.
He even recalled that the framework of provisions affects not only Cuba, but third countries and even U.S. citizens themselves.
Still that old and failed policy hurts many people and causes millionaire losses to this nation, emphasized Rodríguez.
The ONDI director, Gisela Herrero, considers the contest is a way to accompany the lawsuit against the blockade by means of graphics and design.
At present, there are wars that are generated from the media, images and technologies have are elemental in that regard, she said.
