NEHAWU STATEMENT ON THE ACTION AGAINST THE DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN BY THE US GOVERNMENT
Thursday, November 18 2021
The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] condemns the anti-Cuban protests planned by the U.S State Department, the CIA, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), and other U.S. agencies and is appalled by the continued bullying of the Cubans by the USA.
This is not the first attempt by the USA administrations to propagate disinformation about the government of Cuba and to cause divisions between the government and the people. The US government through the US agencies and the CIA, NED used their influence and lobbying in US Capitol Hill to sway US policy towards an aggressive policy towards Cuba.
They have spent millions to discredit the revolution and the progressive people-centered government of Cuba. They have on many occasions facilitated terrorist maneuvers to try to overthrow the revolutionary government in Havana, in order to return Cuba to being a playground of the US.
The blockade against Cuba is the most comprehensive system of unilateral economic sanctions that have ever been applied against any country. It continues to be an obstacle to the development of Cuba. The human damage caused by the blockade is incalculable. It constitutes a massive, flagrant, and systematic violation of human rights. These anti-government protests attempt to remove the focus from the oppressive blockade that destroys the livelihoods of the Cubans and pushes interests of the US government for a regime change.
The UN must stand with Cuba and increase the pressure on President Joseph Biden and the US Congress to end the over 60-year-old cruel sanctions and aggressive hostility against Cuba! The people of Cuba will not be fooled by the propaganda of the US, they know the truth and protect the revolution and the right to sovereignty.
NEHAWU condemns the consistent bullying of Cuba by the US and its agencies and reiterates its solidarity with the heroic people of Cuba. We demand the end of the blockade and sanctions against Cuba. We demand an end to the disinformation of Cuba.
Long Live Cuba
