Cuba: Life saver not terrorist. Reverse Pompeo/Trump designation. Print
Read and sign this important petition by the National Network on Cuba:

Cuba's Henry Reeve Brigade sends doctors on request to COVID-19 hot spots and natural disasters. Cuba saves lives. Its contribution is valued and recognized around the world.

Yet, on January 11, discredited President Trump's State Department added Cuba to its unilateral list of "state sponsors of terrorism". This action has nothing to do with terrorism, but everything to do with making life harder for the Cuban people.

Since 1959 US-backed terrorism has killed more than 3,000 Cubans. Just last year an assault weapon attack on the Cuban Embassy in Washington DC didn't even merit comment from the current administration. From April 2019 to March 2020, US economic terrorism cost Cuba more than $5,570.300.

On December 17, 2014 the US and Cuba renewed diplomatic relations. Respectful discussions signed mutually beneficial agreements -- including one on health that could even help us fight the pandemic.

Look at these numbers. In Los Angeles County -- similar population to Cuba -- 12,250 people have died. But in Cuba 155 -- total, since March! And, not one Cuban health care worker has died from COVID-19!

Especially those of us who have lost loved ones want to know how Cuba has saved lives -- but US laws keep us apart.

It is time to end the sixty year, failed U.S. economic, financial and commercial blockade of Cuba -- completely, for the benefit of people on both sides of the Florida straits, let's #unblockCuba2021.

The Biden-Harris administration @transition46 can sweep away the Trump regulations. We tell them, do it quickly. Please add your voice by signing this petition.
