Medea Benjamin, cofounder of peace group CODEPINK and an author and peace activist, discusses what she saw of the effects of six decades of sanctions on her recent trip to Cuba, why US media ignore the crime of our ongoing embargo, how Cubans feel about the Biden administration and why Cuban Americans are treated as such a powerful political force.
