The appeal to the world from a large group of Cuban artists and intellectuals has become a website, www.concubahoy.cult.cu, and anyone in the world can access it.
Artists from a total of 30 countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, Italy, France, Greece, Australia, the United Kingdom, South Africa and other nations have signed the appeal to date, and they include philosophers, actors, novelists, journalists and jurists.
"We are appealing to the sensitivity of intellectuals and artists all over the world to demand an immediate end of the criminal U.S. blockade and to promote actions of solidarity and help for Cuba," the appeal says.
What the island is asking for is a human right, not charity, said outstanding dancer Alicia Alonso, director of the National Ballet of Cuba, referring to the appeal.
