Days of Action against the U.S. Blockade of Cuba

Date: 
Monday, September 11, 2017 - 11:30 to Saturday, September 16, 2017 - 11:30

from the International Committee for Peace, Justice, and Dignity for the Peoples:

Stand up for health justice a this year's
Days of Action Against the Blockade! 

 

         

Want to advocate for more just policies towards Cuba? Are you able to travel to or live in the DC area? Then join the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity for the Peoples and other organizations for the 3rd annual Days of Action Against the Blockade!

From September 11 through 16, activists and advocates from all over the states will meet in our nation's capital to demand more humane policies towards our island neighbor.

The focus this year is on health care:

  • On how the blockade against Cuba has endangered the health of Cubans and Americans.
  • On how healthcare can be a basic human rights for all Cubans but still a pay-for-it privilege for Americans.
  • On how we can work together to end the blockade against Cubans and support universal health care for Americans.

The purpose is to raise awareness about the impact that the U.S. blockade is having on the health of the Cuban people as well as people in the U.S. who are denied access to advancement that Cuba has made in the health field.

Organized by the International Committee as part of the International Campaign for a Just U.S. Policy towards Cuba, the week will include meetings between Cuban health professionals and their American counterparts, as well as a number of American graduates of the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM). There will also be public events, and committee members and friends will be doing some selective advocacy work on Capitol Hill.
