Cuba’s contribution to the global struggle against the Covid-19 pandemic has been held up as an example of success and solidarity, both internally and for their assistance to 42 countries worldwide. While Cuba’s Henry Reeve International Medical Brigade receives praise for its international cooperation during these difficult times, the United States government has tightened its immoral and illegal U.S. blockade onCuba. From here in Canada, it is crucial that we continue challenging these cruel policies through building stronger Canada-Cuba solidarity.
Join the Canadian Network on Cuba (CNC) and our dynamic guest speakers for an important discussion about the state of Canada-Cuba relations and strengthening our people to people solidarity with Cuba.
