HUMANITARIAN TRADE TO CUBA! ******************************************************
Together, let's direct thousands of calls/faxes/letters to Congress,
urging them to support passage of HR1951/S1391. These bills would allow
sales and donations of food, medicine, and medical equipment to Cuba.
The Clinton Administration's recent gestures about reinstating direct
flights and family remittances are just a tiny step back to pre-Helms/Burton,
but keep the blockade in place.
The Helm/Torricelli/CANF initiative to send US government charity would
be a big step backward because Cuba needs trade, not destabilizing aid.
Both of these initiatives are public relations ploys to slow the momentum
on the passage of the food and medicine bills.
The Pope has called the US blockade of Cuba "monstrously immoral".
South African President Nelson Mandela took Bill Clinton by the hand,
and said "you have to sit down and talk with your enemies."
Add your voice to theirs, and push Congress to take a constructive step
forward to ease the blockade.
Thanks for your great work. It's your voices that have brought us this
As Mandela used to say, "LET'S KEEP THE PRESSURE ON."
