On 4 November 2016, a Washington, DC-based Republic of Cuba-focused advocacy group used the image below to represent a port in the Republic of Cuba.
The image is from a port at Dubai which can handle 10 million containers; the port at Mariel in the Republic of Cuba can handle approximately 800,000 containers. The image of the port at Dubai shows more than twenty yellow cranes; the port at Mariel has four green cranes.
The advocacy group was notified that the image was incorrect, yet continues to use the image (through the morning of 14 November 2016, when it was replaced). The decision not to change the image demonstrates a focus more upon messaging than credibility and providing factual information to United States-based companies. All organizations are harmed.
