CNC campaign for Cuban medical mission in West Africa

- Isaac Saney, Co-Chair & Spokesperson, Canadian Network on Cuba, November 14, 2014 -

The Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC) is launching the Cuba For West Africa Campaign to raise funds to assist the ongoing Cuban medical missions in the West African nations of Guinea-Conakry, Liberia & Sierra Leone that are engaged in fighting the Ebola epidemic. The Cuban medical mission is by far the largest sent by any country. Standing side-by-side with the peoples of West Africa, 461 Cuban doctors and nurses – chosen from more than 15,000 volunteers - have gone to West Africa and joined the struggle against Ebola.  Jose Luis Di Fabio, a representative of the World Health Organization, underscored that  “there are more human resources from Cuba than from many, many NGOs put together.”

Resounding UN Rejection of U.S. Economic Blockade of Cuba Print E-mail

For the 23rd consecutive time the world massively rejected the  U.S. economic war against the people of Cuba. On October 28, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly condemned the U.S. economic blockade of that island nation by resoundingly voting in favour of the resolution, "Necessity of Ending the Economic, Commercial and Financial Embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba."  Mirroring the undiminished global outrage, the vote of the 193 UN member countries was 188 in support of Cuba, with only 2 voting in support of Washington: the United States and Israel. Three countries (Palau, Marshall Islands and Micronesia) abstained. Since 1992,  the international community has repudiated the ongoing economic aggression of the United States against the people of Cuba in these annual votes in the UN. This rejection of Washington’s diktat, graphically underscores the isolation of the empire in world public opinion.
