On Thursday 17th September Perth activists rallied outside the US Consulate in Perth demanding the lifting of the US blockade and the return of the occupied Guantanamo Bay to Cuba.
This snap action was part of the international 3 days of action called by the US groups that included a protest outside the White House, a conference and lobbying of US Congress men and women.
There is much more President Obama can do to alleviate the economic pressure on the Cuban people as well as the issue of compensation for damages amounting to 1.2 trillion US dollars. Activists also called on the return of Guantanamo Bay to Cuba, which has been illegally occupied for more than 100 years. The final decision has to be made by the US Congress.
