NZ/Cuba Friendship Society asks Government to take a stand against blockade


The New Zealand / Cuba Society published a statement emphasizing that, as the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps the planet, it is time for the New Zealand Government to actively support the UN’s call to the U.S. to urgently lift the blockade of Cuba, that is obstructing the country’s health care system’s ability to fight the COVID-19 crisis.
