Join us live from New York on 30 June to discuss the results of the latest United Nations vote with Ana Silvia Rodríguez Abascal, Cuba’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN.
On 23 June 2021 the United Nations General Assembly will vote for the 29th time on Cuba’s resolution calling for an end to the US blockade.
In the third and final of our ‘Breaking the Blockade’ series, which takes place a few days after the UN meeting, we will discuss how the votes stacked up, what position countries took, what it means for Cuba, and how do we prepare for the 30th vote in 2022 – a year that also marks six decades of the US blockade against the island.
