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

    Your actions and inactions regarding this and all related concerns have been, are being and will be remembered by any of us who will live in the world that you are shaping with your decisions right now, in addition to being a matter of public record. We are all on it together. Environmental emergencies are affecting everybody’s health and livelihood, and will do so for generations to come. All issues need to be considered as facets of the critical state of the biosphere.

    Given the consistency with which each current and foreseeable crisis has been weaponized against the vulnerable majority of the population of the United States of America and the world, and the exceptional leniency and overwhelming subsidization of any industry which creates and perpetuates such crises, any failure on your part to directly address and act upon these issues can only be seen as complicity in a clearly genocidal agenda.
