Tuitazo for the End of the Blockade Against Cuba 


On April 2015, during the Summit of the Peoples of Panama and in 2016 in various regional meetings of solidarity with the Cuban revolution, an agreement was made for visible actions to take place to show our forceful rejection of the criminal blockade.

Based on the results of actions carried out for more than a decade on the 5th of each month calling for the freedom of the Cuban 5, it was decided to do the same thing on the 17th of each month in commemoration of December 17, 2014, the day of the historic announcement when Cuba and United States agreed to restart diplomatic relations and also the day of the historic return of Gerardo, Ramón and Antonio to their homeland after 16 years of wrongful imprisonment.

Along with the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) and solidarity committees and groups from around the world, we join these actions calling for a TUITAZO (Twitter storm) on Friday March 17 that can be heard loud and clear at the White House, calling for the end of the criminal blockade against Cuba that continues intact.


We propose the following hashtag for the Tuitazo: #NomasBloqueo

We suggest to include the tweeters of Trump @POTUS
