Episode 47: COVID-19 & Cuba's International Medical Brigade

CODEPINK's Latin America team compares and contrasts the interventionist foreign policy of the US versus the more humanitarian foreign policy of Cuba. Latin American campaign coordinators Leonardo Flores and Teri Mattson illustrate presidential candidate Joe Biden's historical support of US interventionism in Latin America specific to Venezuela and the region in general. CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin interviews Melissa Barber a US graduate of Cuba's Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM). The conversation emphasizes Cuba's humanitarian efforts to bring healthcare to underserved communities throughout the world...including those in the United States.
