Orlando Gutiérrez, the director of the Assembly, made up of organizations from inside and outside the island, pointed out that this tourist activity also helps the "exploitation" of Cuban workers and makes use of expropriated properties, such as "the majority "of the docks in which the ships dock."
"Cruises can not work without exploitation to the Cuban people, who have always been harmed by the duality of the currency," said Gutiérrez.
The campaign includes television ads and two billboards that were installed near busy avenues and highways near the Miami neighborhood of Little Havana and describes as "accomplices" of the abuses that happen on the island to those who travel on cruises.
Sylvia Iriondo, president of Mothers and Women against Repression (MAR), said there is a link direct ulation between the money that the Government of Cuba receives for tourism and the "vexations" to which opponents such as the Damas de Blanco are subjected.
In addition, that money, which they estimated at more than 3,000 million dollars a year, never goes to the people of the island. "It does not improve the lives of Cubans, it increases the regime's coffers to suppress," added Iriondo.
Javier Garcés, who spoke on behalf of Cubans who confiscated property six decades ago "in violation of national and international laws." , indicated that they can not remain "silent" while in Cuba they "use our properties."
The director of the Assembly of the Resistencia Cubana announced that on Saturday they will collect signatures to urge US President Donald Trump to push for legislative changes that will allow them to judge those responsible for the repression in Cuba.
Iriondo pointed out in this regard that judge former Cuban President Raúl Castro for the death of four Brothers to the Rescue pilots in the wake of an attack by Cuban fighter-bombers in 1996.
