Protest against blockade in a demonstration held in Copenhagen

Thousands of people demonstrated on September 2 in Copenhagen against the imperialist policy of the United States. In that context, Danish friends in solidarity with Cuba protested against the blockade in front of the US Embassy in Copenhagen, where they made speeches to demand the lifting of the blockade and condemned the tightening of that genocidal policy under the Trump administration, including the activation of the Title III of the Helms-Burton act.

The demonstration extended from the US Embassy headquarters to Kongens Nytorv, one of the most central squares in the Danish capital. Several Cuban flags waved and posters were shown urging to eliminate the blockade against Cuba, as well as others with the slogan "Yankee go home", among the multiple banners used by the demonstrators. It was possible to observe the giant balloon “Baby Trump” that has been present in other protests carried out in different parts of the world.

The chairman of the Danish-Cuban Association of Friendship, Sven-Erik Simonsen, said in a press interview that this march showed that the US blockade against Cuba also evokes anger and the will for solidarity. Even though President Trump canceled his state visit to Denmark, scheduled from September 2 to 3, this anti-imperialist demonstration was held and was joined by many organizations defending peace and international law.
