Video Mapping in Cuba Denounces U.S. Law

Havana, June 28 (Prensa Latina) As part of the campaign to denounce the Helms-Burton Law that intensifies the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States against Cuba, a video mapping was carried out in Havana.

This is a novel action, aimed at a general public and inserted in the radius of action of the community closest to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba (Minrex).

Many passers-by stopped and observed images projected in one of the buildings belonging to the Foreign Ministry.

These made reference to the denunciations against the U.S. law that in its Title III became effective past June 5.

The Helms-Burton Act,in force since 1996, codified the blockade against Cuba and strengthened its extraterritorial scope and intends to internationalize this policy through coercive measures against third countries, in order to interrupt investment and commercial relations with Cuba and submit those sovereign states to the will of the White House.

It also seeks to cancel the sovereign right of a country to the nationalization and expropriation of foreign and national property.

Regarding Title III of the said law, it states that claimants of properties that were nationalized or expropriated in Cuba, including those that were not American citizens at the time, must be protected and establishes a group of norms to sue before the United States courts.

Its objective is to economically suffocate the Cuban Revolution and eliminate socialism, showing Cuban people how demands are presented before US courts for the ownership of the houses they occupy, the work center where they work, the school attended by their children, the polyclinic where they receive medical attention and the land on which their neighborhoods are built.
