We have heard a lot of opinions in the media on this divisive topic. But, we wanted to hear from you directly: here's what you said, first-hand.

(Note from El Equipo: This survey has ended with 421 respondents. The results are below.) We have spent a lot of time hearing about this in the media. The topic alone is one of the most divisive questions (and political tools) in the US-Cuba conversation. So, to cut through the media filter we went right to you to know what you thought first-hand.

Do the Cuban people primarily want rights and freedom or do they want the US Embargo lifted? Here’s who you told us you think. (All results are anonymous.)

Hola todo el mundo. Sometimes our stories are sourced from multiple people on our team. Or, we like to keep you guessing... You know... anonymous. And, for that, soy el escritora; "El Equipo." We exist to amplify the voices of writers, photographers, and content creators in the space between the United States and Cuba, and we also feature stories from Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the Latinx community in the US. Topics of interest are personality-driven and include pop culture and music, featured current events, climate and the environment, and travel and tastemakers. Oh, and of course we're always 100% independent. No governments, businesses or other influencing factors play a role in our work.
