In this second part of a three part interview, Julie Webb, freelance journalist and reporter for Scoop talks about the frustration of the Cuban government in trying to deal with the effects of two hurricanes that have devastated the country, while still under the restrictions of the US economic embargo. Even lifting the illegal embargo for six months, would make a world of difference to the Cuban people, and their efforts to recover from the aftermath of the hurricane, far more than 'gifts' of food and materials would. Julie describes the history of the illegal blockade, and its long term effects on Cuba and its people.
