4pm Public meeting – End the sanctions against Cuba Now!.

On June 23 the United Nations General Assembly is scheduled to hear debate and vote on a resolution demanding the U.S. government end its over 60-year economic war against Cuba. The Cuban Ambassador to New Zealand Edgardo Valdés López will speak.

In 1959, millions of Cubans, led by Fidel Castro and the July 26 Movement, overthrew the US-backed dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista and carried out a socialist revolution. In 1962 the United States government imposed an economic, financial and commercial embargo of Cuba aimed at starving the Cuban people back into submission. Twelve successive US administrations have continued this policy.

PLEASE HELP US SEND VITAL VACCINATION SYRINGES TO CUBA!

Cuba has a shortage of 20 million syringes vital to the goal of vaccinating the entire Cuban population against Covid. We are working with Global Health Partners to send syringes to Cuba. https://ghpartners.org/syringes4cuba/

Please show your solidarity now with a country that has done so much for the health of its own people, and for struggling communities around the world.

Over the past year alone, Cuba has sent 3,700 health workers, in 52 international medical brigades, to 39 countries overwhelmed by the pandemic. Cuba’s international medical brigades have treated patients and saved lives for the past 15 years in 53 countries confronting natural disasters and serious epidemics, such as the Ebola crisis in West Africa.

Cuba has developed five internationally recognized candidate COVID-19 vaccines, with two in Phase III clinical trials as of April 2021. Cuba has 11.3 million people, but plans to produce 100 million doses of vaccine, to meet its commitment to sharing its low-cost vaccines with poor countries in the developing world.
