BreakThrough News

Protests in Cuba have the US war and propaganda machine running on full tilt, despite the clear fact that the protests are a direct result of the tightening blockade against Cuba. Deep limits on trade, remittances, and more from Trump's additional 243 sanctions have worsened the 62-year long US economic blockade to horrendous proportions. What is actually going on in Cuba, who is protesting, and why? What is the Western media portraying and which parts are lies? Gloria La Riva, Coordinator of the Cuba and Venezuela Solidarity Committee, and Gail Walker, Executive Director of IFCO Pastors for Peace, explain the details of the blockade, the suffering they saw in June when they were there in Cuba, and how strong the revolutionary spirit continues to be among the Cuban people. They debunk the lies from the US empire that is sharpening its knives against the small island nation. Journalist, actor, comedian & soccer player Sapphire McIntosh goes in on the racism lashing English soccer players. S’bu Zikode, founder & president of Abahlali baseMjondolo Movement (shack dwellers movement) in South Africa, discusses and sheds light on the unrest in South Africa.

Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. They control the news cycle, to which social media and even most “alternative” media is forced to respond. We are breaking through that cycle. We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time. People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through. We can be that media arm, but only with your help. Become a Patron and join us on the front lines in the battle of ideas.
