Cuba launches widespread rationing amid economic crisis | Al Jazeera English



Cuba has announced it is rationing staple foods and hygiene products due to shortages which it partly blames on the tightening of a trade embargo imposed by the United States.

Faced with a grave economic crisis, the Cuban government says it will control and ration the sales of chicken, eggs, rice, beans, soap and other essential items.
Communist leaders say rationing will prevent shortages and stop Cubans from hoarding goods to sell on the black market.

  1. Babylon is falling, babylon is falling .. ppl get ready.. eat more plants and grow them and pray, only tips i got for cuba.. ur a tropical island. Chicken and swin aint even from islands… save ya seeds and get on ya knees.. dont trust the evil hand…

  2. Cuba has a central planned economy. The central planner is not spending any money on fertilizer for the crops needed to feed the populace. Thus starvation. Isn’t socialism wonderful.

  3. Grow your own raise your own food!!THATS WHY ALL THESE ILLEGALS COMING TO USA GO AWAY WE HAVE 1 MILLION WAITIN IN LINE WELL GIVE UP MADURO U GET ALL YOUR SANCTION OFF

  4. COMMUNIST CUBA NEEDS TO BE INTERVENED BY MILITARY FORCE, THE PUPPET AND CORRUPT COMMIE GOVERNMENT OF MIGUEL DIAZ-CANEL OVERTHROWN, THE PEOPLE DEMOCRATIZED (IRAQ STYLE), THE CUBAN LGBT FUMIGATED AND THEN THE ISLAND ANNEXED TO MEXICO.

  5. So communism depends on capitalism…it’s always been true. The elites know true capitalism gives opportunity too everyone. They deal with each other in a capitalist way and us slaves get communism, socialism or corporatists fascism.

  6. HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST…AND HE WILL SUSTAIN YOU!

    "And if you fail to learn a lesson from this and continue your hostility toward me, then I myself will be hostile toward you, and I will personally strike you seven times over for your sins…I will completely destroy your food supply, so the bread from one oven will have to be stretched to feed ten families. They will ration your food by weight, and even if you have food to eat, you will not be satisfied." (Leviticus 26:23, 24, 26 NLT

    “For the strength of the wicked will be shattered, but the Lord takes care of the godly. Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent, and they will receive a reward that lasts forever. They will survive through hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough…Turn from evil and do good, and you will live in the land forever. For the Lord loves justice, and he will never abandon the godly. He will keep them safe forever, but the children of the wicked will perish…I myself have seen it happen – proud and evil people thriving like mighty trees. But when I looked again, they were gone! Though I searched for them, I could not find them! Look at those who are honest and good, for a wonderful future lies before those who love peace. But the wicked will be destroyed; they have no future. The Lord saves the godly; he is their fortress in times of trouble. The Lord helps them, rescuing them from the wicked. He saves them, and they find shelter in him.” (Psalm 37:1-13, 17-19, 27-28, 35-40 NLT) Praise the Lord Jesus Christ for His awesome deeds! Stop sinning, obey Him and trust Him. For the Kingdom of God is near!
