big thank you to everyone who supported and participated in the Canadian Network on Cuba’s 2nd 26-hour virtual picket against the U.S. Blockade on Cuba, June 22-23, 2021. The event was a great success!

>> A REPORT AND LETTER OF THANKS! <<

From June 17-23, 2021 an international week of action was called. Organizations around the world used this week to raise their united voices against the cruel and unjust U.S. blockade against Cuba. Political events, protests, webinars, art shows, car caravans, bike caravans, marches, and other creative actions were organized by the Cuba solidarity movement around the world. This coincided with Cuba’s  preparation to introduce its resolution for the world to condemn this unjust U.S. policy at the United Nations General Assembly for the 29th time.

June 23rd United Nations General Assembly Vote on Resolution Against US Economic Sanctions Against Cuba Print E-mail

Dear Minister Garneau,

Re: June 23rd United Nations General Assembly Vote on Resolution Against US Economic Sanctions Against Cuba

I am writing to you on behalf of the Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC), which represents Canada-Cuba friendship and solidarity organizations from Vancouver to Halifax. Two of the CNC’s principal objectives are bringing an end to US 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.

Since the early 1960s, the Government of the United States has imposed on Cuba the longest lasting regime of sanctions in history. It would not be an exaggeration to describe Washington’s policy as an economic war against the people of Cuba. The objective is the negation and extinguishment of Cuba’s right to self-determination, sovereignty, and independence. This effort to asphyxiate Cuba is an egregious violation of the human rights of the Cuban people and an intolerable violation of the right to self-determination.

CNC's Medical Supplies for Cuba Campaign: a resounding success Print E-mail
Dear Friends,

Hearty thanks to everyone who contributed to making the CNC's Medical Supplies for Cuba Campaign such a resounding success. You will remember that our goal was to raise in three months $50,000 for purchasing medicines and equipment needed to compensate for the cruel, inhumane U.S. blockade and its attendant sanctions against the Cuban people and their economy. In the meantime Cubans have kept on thinking and working, striving to create and save, and never forgetting as the central motor of their efforts the idea of sovereignty. Their friends seem to be inspired by this motivation; and, as a result, Sharon Skup, acting again so efficiently as our campaign accountant, has reported that we have more than doubled our goal, by raising $100,711.
