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
Rep. Barbara Lee, Chair House Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs
Sen. Chris Coons, Chair Senate Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs

    Leave Cuba in peace. They are doing well despite USA economic sabotage and “regime change” intervention. Leave them alone stop being the bully of the Western Hemisphere.

    The Biden administration was not elected to rule the world. What the US should do, is work to benefit the American people and stop interfering in the internal affairs of sovereign nations. Cuba will not be a US colony

    Instead of fighting and wasting money trying to take down an independent Country that does better than the US on so many different aspects, why don’t we concentrate on solving our problems?
