Stop funding regime change in Cuba!

The U.S. has spent over a billion dollars trying to overthrow the Cuban government. That’s our tax money being used to violate international law!


Dear Secretary of State Antony Blinken,

The United States has spent well over a billion dollars in regime change efforts in Cuba. This is U.S. taxpayer money being used to punish a civilian population, churn up conflict, and engage our government in actions that are contrary to international law.

At a time when our nation is engaged in a serious debate about funding healthcare, education, green jobs and social service, it is mind-boggling that we continue to spend millions of dollars a year on outlandish programs aimed at overthrowing the Cuban government.

Why should our hard-earned money fund rappers in Cuba? Or a plane that tries to broadcast TV and radio into Cuba but gets its signal blocked? Or phony HIV prevention workshops designed to turn young Cubans against their government? Or a Twitter-like app designed to spur dissent? Or state-sponsored propaganda that nobody listens to? Or a plan to malign Cuban doctors fighting Covid-19 in dozens of countries overseas?

This wasted taxpayer money has created an entire industry, mainly in Miami, that is dependent on continuing U.S. aggression against Cuba. Enough is enough. We call on you to stop funding regime change in Cuba.


Sincerely,

 

CC: USAID Administrator Samantha Power
NED President Carl Gershman
Rep. Greg Meeks, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair
Sen. Bob Menendez, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair

    I’ll sign it because the U.S. should not be involved in this egregious practice. But Cuba is a dictatorship which does not serve its people well. We need another approach such as Obama made.

    US policy towards Cuba has been declared a crime AGAINST humanity! It feeds the most corrupt and cynical private contractors who have no accountability. Follow the $$$$$ and be ashamed and alarmed that our country violates the fundamental human rights of every Cuban citizen. STOP the WAR against Cuba! Respect International law and human rights!

    The US government has to ask how has regime change worked for them in Syria, Libya, Haiti, Venezuela, Iraq, Afghanistan? Maybe the only regime change is required at home with leaders dedicated to true peace and justice. How about starting with treating indigenous and Americans of color properly before you attack the splinter in the eye of your neighbor.
