What is a homework embargo?
An embargo is a conscious protest against something and refusal to do the usual actions around that issue. As an example, a country can refuse overseas products using an embargo. So a homework embargo would be a refusal to do the usual actions, i.e. to do your homework. However-- this is rarely a good idea. Students' grades can drop, they fall behind on information they need to learn, and teachers can even give punishments for refusing to do homework.

What do you call a stoppage of trade for some time by an authority?
Why would one country place an embargo on another country?
There are several reasons. A country may place an embargo in order to try to stop if from doing things it does not approve or at least to demonstrate its disapproval. For example, prior to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the United States issued an oil embargo against Japan, which had been invading territories around the Pacific. Japan needed that oil to continue its war effort. A county may also place am embargo on goods that are produced by means deemed inappropriate. For example, nations of the U.N. placed an embargo on diamonds from several countries in Africa due to human rights violations during mining and because the money from the diamonds was used to fund terrorist organizations.
