Webinar: Sanctioned Countries Speak Out on COVID-19

Event Description

This webinar will feature government representatives of several countries under harsh US imposed sanctions. The speakers will include:

Cuba — Ana Silvia Rodriguez Abascal, Charge des Affaires of the Cuban Mission to the UN
Zimbabwe — Dr. Frank Guni, Secretary for Administration, ZANU-PF North America
Nicaragua — Francisco O Campbell, Nicaraguan Ambassador to the U.S.
Syria — Dr. Bashar Ja’afari, Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations
Venezuela — Carlos J. Ron Martinez, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs
Iran - Majid Takht-Ravanchi, Ambassador to the United National

The US has imposed economic sanctions against 39 countries. These sanctions during this global pandemic are especially egregious. In many cases, this denies them access to medicine and medical equipment as well as access to world markets for food and other necessities. During the coronavirus crisis the US, with the highest death count in the world, has upped the sanctions against countries like Iran and Venezuela, and has tried to weaponize COVID-19 to bring down governments that will not follow the dictates of Washington and Wall Street. The UN has asked that sanctions be loosened during this crisis but the US has done the opposite. Many US allies have broken with them and sent medical aid to some of these countries. Now is an important time for the people in the US to come out strongly against these sanctions, which are simply war by other means. Join us for this important webinar.
