In Support of Cuba

 

Our country is facing a dramatic situation.  We have suffered the wrath of
two powerful hurricanes, Gustav and Ike, in just eight days.  These natural
disasters have seriously affected food production and essential sectors of
the economy throughout the country.  Although very few human lives were
lost, a massive amount of houses, schools and cultural institutions were
damaged or completely destroyed.

In view of this tragedy, a debate about the restrictions imposed by the US
on Cuban residents to visit and send supplies and money to their families in
Cuba has begun.  Cuba has requested authorization to buy materials from
the US to repair homes and power lines.  In addition, Cuba has requested
that US companies receive authorization to extend commercial credits to
the island to buy food.  The Bush Administration’s reply has been a
ridiculous offer of aid while ratifying their policy of political and economic
blockade, even more cruel and immoral under the present circumstances.

We are sending an appeal to artists and intellectuals around the world to
demand an immediate end to the criminal US blockade and to promote
solidarity and support of our country.
