Imagine a country developing and producing its own Covid-19 vaccines, enough to cover its entire population, but being unable to inoculate everyone because of a syringe shortage. This absurd situation is real, and one that Cuba will soon face. Cuba has already vaccinated about 2 million of its 11 million people, and hopes to have 70 percent of the population vaccinated by August. Yet, because of the 60-year US embargo, which punishes civilians during a pandemic, the country is facing a shortage of millions of syringes.

Whether it’s police violence, poor medical care, or simply trying to breathe, we suffer from an underlying condition: racism

We die driving our cars. We die playing outside. We die babysitting. We die eating ice cream. We die sleeping in our own beds. We die and die and die at the hands of the police who are sworn to serve and protect us.

Even then, we are not done dying. We die giving birth. We die trying to breathe. We die when doctors under-treat our heart attacks and dismiss our calls for help.

Remarks by Carlos Fernández de Cossío, director general of United States affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, on the Helms-Burton Act.

Carlos Fernández de Cossío Helms-Burton has no impact whatsoever, practical impact in Cuba. It’s a US Law with no jurisdiction whatsoever in Cuba and cannot be applied in any sovereign country that respects its sovereignty. Its jurisdiction is limited to the United States. In addition to that, Cuba passed a law in 1996 that defined that Helms-Burton was null and void of any meaning or impact in our country so in practical terms it has no effect whatsoever in Cuba.

Statement by the Government of Cuba

DECLARATION OF THE REVOLUTIONARY GOVERNMENT

Ridícula ha sido la convocatoria realizada por Rosa María Payá, liderzuela de la plataforma Cuba Decide, para que los ciudadanos cubanos, incluidos residentes en la Isla y en el exterior, a “participar en la estrategia de desobediencia civil ante en la reforma constitucional iniciada por el Partido Comunista de Cuba”. Esta convocatoria que llama a sabotear a nuestra constitucionalidad será dada a conocer mañana miércoles 5 en una conferencia de prensa a realizarse en la sede del Instituto Interamericano para la Democracia, sita en el 2100 de Coral Way, Suite #500, en Miami. Este llamado incluye no solo sabotear a las asambleas que se realizarán a nivel de cuadras, centros de trabajo, estudiantiles, y otros, sino también la votación de la Reforma Constitucional que se realizará el venidero 24 de febrero del 2019.

Junto a esta ilusa mercenaria, participarán terroristas como Ramón Saúl Sánchez –ahora devenido en falso pacifista a cargo del provocador Movimiento Democracia– y Francisco Talavera, liderzuelo del auto titulado “Presidio Político Histórico”. También le acompañarán en este remedo de anuncio de prensa el contrarrevolucionario José Daniel Ferrer y Santiago Alpizar.

Este intento desesperado de tramar estrategias contra nuestra soberanía e institucionalidad está condenado al fracaso, pues como dijo una vez Napoleón: “Cuando se hacen tonterías, éstas por lo menos deben dar resultado.” Aquí el pueblo dirá su última palabra.
