When the coronavirus urgency is over, will the international community repay Cuba by standing up against U.S. imperialism until the blockade is completely lifted?
While the current interference in Latin America may be constructed as a strategy to isolate Cuba further, imperialism is missing the point – revolutions are made by the people and the U.S. has triggered all the conditions for change in the region.
Sabotaging the Cuban Revolution, even after 61 years, remains a US priority. Latin America is once again in the grips of political changes; Chile and Bolivia currently represent the spectrum of neoliberal and imperialist interference.
The US might have harboured the intention that Fidel’s departure would facilitate the process for a counter-revolutionary period in Cuba. However, the Cuban Revolution was always bigger than Fidel.
