5 years ago and still happening...one of the worst companies in the world?

.....Bacardi Rum Corporation has launched an advertising campaign, based on a ‘macho’, untameable image and posing as victims of the Cuba’s socialist revolution. In fact, Bacardi are the perpetrators of violence and injustice, not the victims.

For 55 years, Bacardi has backed illegal and violent attacks against the Cuban Revolution, including funding the Cuban-American National Foundation, a right-wing Miami-based exile organisation involved in terrorism against Cuba. During this time, more than 3,400 Cubans have been killed by terrorism and sabotage. Many of these actions funded by this corporation.

Bacardi’s lawyers helped draft the US Helms-Burton Act, which extends the US blockade of Cuba to all countries, in breach of international trade laws. Bacardi served as a conduit for funds from the CIA to mercenaries in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Angola and to saboteurs in Cuba.
