Main St.  Los Angeles, CA 90012 We join with hundreds of Cuban-Americans and others at this music festival who demand: end the US embargo and sanctions against Cuba, lift the travel and trade ban, allow financial remittances. Cuban-Americans recently marched from Miami to Washington, and arrived July 25 for a national demonstration delivering 50,000 petitions to Biden demanding an end to the blockade & sanctions. We shall caravan from Atlantic Park 10 am (570 S Atlantic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90022) to the press conference after participating in the Chicano Moratorium anniversary. Press conference speakers will report on: 1.    ILWU Resolution against the blockade and $10,000 donation of medical aid to Cuba 2.    LA Cuban Americans speak out against the embargo, sanctions for ending travel & trade bans 3.     Medical aid collection efforts in LA, (#Syringes4Cuba has sent 6 million worth $550,000) 4.    Local, national and international efforts to end the US embargo, sanctions, trade and travel ban 5.    Exposing US backed disruptions in Cuba, #SOS campaign, threats of US military invasion    The hidden hand of the US in Cuban protests should be understood in the context of a brutal  economic war waged by the United States against the island nation for more than 60 years.   Cuban President Díaz-Canel said” There were four sectors involved in the protests: radical supporters of the United States who waved that country’s flag during the protests and demanded intervention from Washington, criminals who took advantage of the situation to loot, people genuinely desperate due to the impact of the crisis due to the 60-year US embargo on their daily lives and young people who feel disenfranchised.” A cyber-attack and internet disinformation campaign against the Cuban government’s website was part of the latest provocative interventions financed by Biden’s $250 million to destabilize Cuba. A large number of false accesses to the website came from 34 different I.P. addresses in the U.S., France, the U.K. and Turkey. #SOSCuba bot tweets coming … lees meer

Open brief aan Biden

Open Letter to President Biden on Cuban vaccines against COVID-19   August 11, 2021     We share with our readers the Open Letter regarding the Cuban vaccine and vaccine candidates and President Biden’s interfering statements.   President Biden:   You recently referred to Cuba at the White House saying: “I would be willing to administer significant quantities of vaccines if … an international organization would administer those vaccines and do so in a way that average citizens would have access to those vaccines.”  You also called Cuba a “failed state.”   These statements surprised many, including Americans who have had direct contact with the Cuban health care system.  It also outraged frontline Cuban health workers who risk their lives to contain the COVID epidemic in our country.  This does not reflect the Cuban reality and we regret that misinformation by malicious actors is influencing your political decisions.  As scientists, physicians and concerned citizens, we believe it is worthwhile to verify the reality of three assumptions implicit in your words.   Assumption one: International intervention is needed to ensure that all Cubans receive vaccines.   Assumption two: Cuba’s response to the pandemic has been dismal, symptomatic of a “failed state.”   Assumption three: U.S.-supplied vaccines are the only way to guarantee immunization against COVID-19 for Cuba’s 11 million inhabitants.       Assumption one: Need for external intervention to ensure access to vaccines   Let’s look at these assumptions one by one: the first assumption – that foreign intervention is needed to guarantee access to vaccines for all Cubans – suggests that Cuba’s deployment of vaccination campaigns is inefficient and discriminatory.   The facts do not support this assumption. In fact, as both UNICEF and the World Health Organization have confirmed, child vaccination rates in Cuba exceed 99%.  Immunization is part of our country’s universal public health system, free for all Cubans regardless of socioeconomic status, politics, religion, sex or race.   The national immunization program, created in 1962, covers the entire country.  Since 1999, all Cubans have been protected against 13 life-threatening diseases, including diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis.  Eight of these vaccines are manufactured in Cuba.   As a result of high vaccination rates, we have not had a single case of measles in recent decades.  On the contrary, the CDC confirmed 1,282 cases of measles in the United States in 2019, and only 74% of children received all … lees meer

Lieve vrienden

Lieve vrienden, Bijgaand vindt u de Verklaring over de ware geschiedenis van de zogenaamde Cubaanse opstand. Ik nodig je uit om er eens naar te kijken en je geest en je hart te openen voor het echte Cuba, rekening houdend met de feiten en niet de propaganda die wordt gepresenteerd op sociale mediaplatforms en de onverantwoordelijke en banale oefening van veel media die de afgelopen jaren hebben bewezen een factor in het manipuleren van de publieke opinie in veel gevallen, en niet het bevorderen van een objectieve en onpartijdige analyse van de feiten. Voel je vrij om te verspreiden, commentaar of post. Vriendelijke groeten,Soraya Alvarez            Ambassadeur Verklaring van de Commissie Interne Betrekkingenvan de Nationale Vergadering van de Volksmacht People We richten ons tot parlementen, parlementaire vriendschapsgroepen en wetgevers, om te reageren op de immense, meedogenloze politieke en media-operatie georkestreerd en gefinancierd door Washington en gepropageerd via sociale media, automatisch gerepliceerd om honderdduizenden tweets en dergelijke te genereren aantal volgers, met intensief gebruik van robots, algoritmen en accounts nieuw gemaakt voor de gelegenheid; allemaal met de steun van de internationale media en de informatietransnationalen.Ze hebben aangezet tot geweld, misdaad, wanorde en sociale ongedisciplineerdheid, terwijlde wereld een totaal, schandalig verwrongen beeld van onze realiteit als onderdeel vande onconventionele oorlogvoering georkestreerd en gefinancierd door Washington tegen onzeland, gericht op het veranderen van het systeem dat vrij en soeverein is gekozen door onzemensen, zoals bekrachtigd door de op 10 april 2019 goedgekeurde grondwet, met 86,85% vandegenen die hebben gestemd, in een democratische verkiezing met een hoge opkomst.Met totale schaamteloosheid hebben ze wereldwijd gemanipuleerde beelden verspreidvan evenementen in andere landen om aan te tonen, zoals aangegeven in hun handleidingen, dat:Cuba mist bestuurbaarheid, dat de natie in chaos verkeert, terwijl het internerepressie die niet bestaat.In de greep van een pandemie die zo ernstig is voor de mensheid – die in Cuba, zoals destatistieken laten zien, krijgt permanente, goede aandacht – de Amerikaanse regering, niettevreden met de escalatie van de criminele en genocidale blokkade en financiëlevervolging tot perverse uitersten en het toepassen van 243 onmenselijke maatregelengedurende de laatste vier jaar in een poging om ons volk te verstikken; nu zijn ze van planom de weg vrij te maken voor militaire agressie, onder het bekende voorwendsel van:“humanitaire interventie”, in strijd met onze wetten, het internationaal recht en deVN-Handvest. Zoals blijkt uit de afbeeldingen die zijn verspreid, zijn er ongeregeldheden, en verschillende groepen in bepaalde plaatsen hebben daden van vandalisme, fysieke schade … lees meer

Verklaring Nationale Vergadering Cuba

Declaration by the Internal Relations Commission of the National Assembly of the People’s Power   We address ourselves to parliaments, parliamentary friendship groups and legislators, to respond to the immense, brutal political and media operation orchestrated and financed by Washington and propagated via social media, replicated automatically to generate hundreds of thousands of tweets and a similar number of followers, with the intensive use of robots, algorithms and accounts newly created for the occasion; all with the support of the international media and the information transnationals. They have incited to violence, to crime, to disorder and to social indiscipline, while portraying to the world a totally, scandalously twisted view of our reality as part of the unconventional warfare orchestrated and financed by Washington against our country, aimed at changing the system freely and sovereignly chosen by our people, as endorsed by the Constitution approved on 10 April 2019, by 86.85% of those who voted, in a democratic election with a high turnout. With utter shamelessness, they have disseminated worldwide, manipulated images of events in other countries to demonstrate, as instructed in their manuals, that Cuba lacks governability, that the nation is in chaos, while alleging internal repression which does  not exist. In the throes of a pandemic of such gravity for mankind – which in Cuba, as the statistics show, receives permanent, proper attention – the US government, not satisfied with having escalated the criminal and genocidal blockade and financial persecution to perverse extremes and having applied 243 inhuman measures during the last four years in an attempt to stifle our people; now they are planning to prepare the ground for military aggression, with the familiar pretext of “humanitarian intervention”, in violation of our laws, of international law and of the UN Charter. As is apparent from the images that have been disseminated, there have been disturbances, and various groups in certain localities have committed acts of vandalism, caused physical damage, made death threats and committed serious assaults, disrupting with flagrantly criminal acts the state of law and order that characterizes our country  The social uprising so vigorously promoted and craved by Washington has not happened. As a result of over 60 years of blockade, we have accumulated problems that are aggravated by the pandemic, the huge expense it implies and the economic crisis it generates. The Cuban people, united, determined and enterprising, must seek solutions and – as always … lees meer

De VS moet zich dood schamen

  Pers bericht over:  De stemming in de V.N vergadering, van afgelopen 23 juni 2021, over : “Stop de Onmenselijke blokkade contra Cuba”. 184 landen stemden tegen de blokkade van Amerika en het is een grote overwinning voor Cuba dat er zoveel landen tegen de blokkade stemden.  We zijn een poster aan het maken en hebben daar de foto’s voor nodig. De tekst luid: De Verenigde Staten van Amerika moeten zich dood schamen dat het besluit van de VN waar 184 landen tegen de blokkade stemden op 23 juni 2021, door Amerika, niet wordt gerespecteerd.  Opnieuw gebruikte Amerika haar onwettige en valse  veto recht en blokkeerde opnieuw de opheffing van de al 62 jaar durende blokkade tegen het Cubaanse  Volk. De Verenigde Staten  van America moet zich diep schamen om in deze periode van pandemie van het Corona Virus, het Cubaanse Volk te terroriseren met hun valse en onrechtmatige Veto in de VN vergadering, uit te spreken, op 23 juni 2021.  Stichting Holanda Pro Cuba, Guillermo Willem Veldhoven 29 -6-2021.(voorzitter).
