Here's what you told us when we asked whether it's time to remove Trump's designation of Cuba as a State Sponsor or Terror.

Over 10,000 people and 100 advocacy groups have recently signed an open letter urging President Biden to reverse the Trump administration’s State Sponsor of Terrorism designation for Cuba. They also hope to reinstate Obama-era policy with the island nation.

There are currently four countries on this list: Cuba, Iran, Syria and North Korea. For as complicated as US-Cuba relations are – and say what you want because Cuba is definitely “complicated” – by simple definition, we don’t think Cuba qualifies for the “terrorist” designation. And, particularly not in the same vein as the three others on the list. But of course we want to know where you, our readers, stand on the issue. Should President Biden remove Cubas designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism?

Be heard below.

All responses are anonymous.

We’ll share the results of this poll in our weekly newsletter.

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.
