An Open Letter to Party Leaders in the 2021 Federal Election of Canada, September 6, 2021 Print E-mail

 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.

Dear Minister Garneau,

Re: Unjustified Attack on 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, with a membership of more than 50,000. 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.

We, in the CNC, are concerned about the extreme and humiliating pressure that the government of the United States is exerting on third countries to support a Joint Statement - it has written - unjustly condemning Cuba.

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.

Hands Off Cuba! No to the U.S. War on Cuba! Print E-mail

-Isaac Saney, Spokesperson, Canadian Network on Cuba, July 12, 2021 -

The Canadian Network on Cuba condemns the manipulation of the July 11 events in Cuba by reactionary politicians and the monopoly media in order to create a climate of disinformation and confusion that will be used to justify so-called humanitarian intervention in the heroic island nation. 

Specifically, we denounce the U.S. ongoing economic war and campaign of subversion against Cuba. Washington's hand in orchestrating the protests is undeniable. It is quite revealing that at the exact time the protests were occurring in Cuba, simultaneous demonstrations were organized at Cuban embassies and consulates in cities across the world.
