Dear Compañeros and Compañeras:
An extremely difficult year for humanity is finally coming to an end. It has been marked by the Covid-19 pandemic where the world’s health systems collapsed and where privatization of health services prevailed before life, economic crisis, reduction of jobs, and near paralysis of air and sea transport and the accelerated destruction of the environment. As if that were not enough, the odious Trump administration intensified the aggression against Venezuela and the inhumane blockade against Cuba as never before.
During the Trump administration Cuba has been levied with120 economic sanctions of all kinds, including shipping and insurance companies, an attempt to stifle the island’s economy, leaving it without fuel, food and medical supplies, even banning the purchase of ventilators to deal with the pandemic.
The recent soft coup that was launched with a set of destabilizing actions: economic warfare, a fierce media attack on Cuban medical collaboration; promotion of disrespect for patriotic symbols, especially the Cuba flag; the infiltration of cultural spaces by mercenaries to wound the soul of the nation; the hiring of criminals to provoke riots and attacks on shops that, calls for confrontation and protest against the government. It doesn’t stop there, There has also been media attacks against socialism while ignoring the fact that Cuba is one of the 30 countries in the world that has vaccine candidates to combat the pandemic and despite the terrible aggression has left no one abandoned, not even 10,000 people have been infected and 150 killed by COVID.
While the world is asking for the Nobel Peace Prize 2021 for the Cuban doctors of the Henry Reeve Brigade in recognition of their altruism and humanism, for their extraordinary help during the pandemic in 39 countries and territories in Europe, Africa, Arab countries, Latin America and the Caribbean, the big business media is not only silent but follows the perverse matrix of discredit, slander and lies against Cuban medical collaboration.
Despite the attempt to destroy it and bring it back to capitalism, the Cuban Revolution is celebrating 62 years of heroic resistance and social achievements this January 1st, giving valuable lessons to many developed countries in the Americas and around the world.
Dear friends and solidarity activists, we call on you to give a great and warm embrace to the heroic people of Cuba and its revolutionary government.
An embrace that will make our international solidarity be felt from 12:01am on the 62nd anniversary of the Cuban Revolution and during January 1, through messages on social networks using the hashtag #ElMundoAbrazaACuba
