63 Years of Revolution: 63 Years of Independence, Justice and Human Dignity! Print E-mail

January 1st, 2022, marks the 63rd anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, when the people of Cuba led by Fidel Castro, seized their destiny in their own hands, affirming and exercising their right to self-determination, authentic freedom, and human dignity. The Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC) on behalf of the Canada-Cuba friendship and solidarity movement, sends to the people of Cuba, the Cuban government and Cuba’s revolutionary leadership our warmest greetings on this occasion.

CNC Statement: ¡Fidel: His Legacy Lives On! Print E-mail

Today, November 25, 2021, marks the 5th anniversary of the physical death of Fidel Castro, the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution. While, in keeping with his wishes, no statues or monuments have been erected nor streets or buildings named in his honour, it is clear that his legacy transcends mere physical trappings.

The most fitting monument to Fidel is the Cuban Revolution, which continues undeterred and undaunted along the path of independence, social justice, human dignity and internationalism forged under his revolutionary leadership. Inspired by Fidel's principled and dignified example, the Cuban people continue to successfully resist the empire and its unrelenting malignant war against the heroic island nation.

As many have pointed out, no words can truly convey the singular meaning of Fidel. His significance extends far beyond the geographical boundaries of Cuba. He is present in every struggle to bring into being a better world.

¡Fidel Presente, Siempre! Fidel Is Ever Present!

On behalf of the Canadian Network on Cuba,

U.S. Prepares New Attack On Cuba: Canada Must Uphold the Right of Self-Determination! Print E-mail

-Isaac Saney, CNC Spokesperson, November 10, 2021-

On November 15th a series of U.S. orchestrated and financed provocations are planned against Cuba with the explicit aim of subverting the island’s constitutional order, so as to create a pretext for the intensification of the U.S. economic war and justify possible military intervention. The Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC) denounces Washington’s campaign of destabilization and subversion against the sovereign government of Cuba. These efforts to bring about so-called “regime change” are a flagrant, blatant, and unconscionable violation of the right of self-determination of the people of Cuba.

Petition Against the U.S. War on Cuba Relaunched Print E-mail

The parliamentary petition (e-3640) against the U.S. War on and Economic Blockade of Cuba is now open for signatures.

It calls on the Government of Canada to take specific steps in opposing U.S. attacks on the heroic island nation.

To sign the petition, go to: https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Sign/e-3640

It also calls on the Government of Canada to ensure that Ottawa's policy and relations with Cuba do not mirror or follow Washington's diktat.

The petition initiated by the Canadian Network On Cuba is sponsored by Niki Ashton, member of Canada's parliament for the federal constituency of Churchill—Keewatinook Aski in the province of Manitoba. It builds on the success of the previous petition (e-3456) during the last parliamentary session when 3,375 citizens and residents of Canada emphatically demanded an end to the U.S. economic siege and of Cuba.

 Re: Canada-Cuba Relations

I am writing to you on behalf of the Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC), which represents 22 Canada-Cuba friendship and solidarity organizations across Canada, ranging from Vancouver to Halifax, with over 50,000 in membership. Two of the CNC’s principal objectives are:

* bringing an end to U.S. economic sanctions against Cuba and
* ensuring that Canada’s relations with Cuba are based on equality and respect for the island nation's independence, sovereignty, and the right of self-determination.

Canadians - more than 3,900 - have already spoken clearly on these matters in two parliamentary petitions (e-2586 and e-3456) calling on the Government of Canada to actively oppose U.S. economic aggression against Cuba, and to ensure that Ottawa-Havana relations be maintained in accordance with established international law and diplomatic norms.
