Dear Friends:

Between October 14 and 16, the tenth edition of the ISLA Festival (Ireland, Spain and Latin America) will be held, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of the Cervantes Institute.

This will be an excellent opportunity to enjoy various artistic performances by Irish, Spanish and Latin American professionals, including two poets and a Cuban musician.

Mr Secretary General,

Mr President,

I have come to speak on behalf of a people coerced with the threat of starvation for over 60 years.

In April 1960, in a notorious and long-time secret memorandum, a minor US State Department official  named  Lester Mallory drafted the bases of the policy of blockade against Cuba, aimed at causing hunger, desperation and the overthrow of the government.

Mr. Secretary General;

Mr. President;

We are living uncertain times. Under the demolishing impact of a pandemic that has worsened structural inequities and the global crisis, the role of multilateralism and the United Nations becomes ever more important. And international cooperation has been insufficient.

The implementation of neo-liberal formulas for decades has been reducing States’ capabilities to meet the needs of their populations.

We have closely followed the most recent events in the European Parliament and have noted with disgust that the same faction of MEPs subservient to Washington have contrived to schedule a new debate on Cuba on September 16 next, dragging with them the political groupings to which they belong. This action once again turns the Parliament into a pawn in maneuvers of escalating aggression that is contrary to genuinely European interests and to the respectful dialogue that has characterized Cuba-EU relations.

Open letter to President Biden about Covid Vaccines for Cuba.

Open letter to President Biden about Covid Vaccines for Cuba.

President Biden:

You recently referred to Cuba at a White House saying: "I would be prepared to give significant amounts of vaccines if… an international organization would administer those vaccines and do it in a way that average citizens would have access to those vaccines." You also called Cuba a “failed state”.
