22ND JUNE 2021

WE ARE A COALITION OF NIGERIANS AGAINST AMERICAN BLOCKADE OF CUBA!

COPIED: The United Nations General Assembly, c/o UN Office, Abuja-Nigeria.

His Excellency Geoffrey Onyeama.

The Honourable Minister

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Abuja- Nigeria.

Your Excellency,

Need for Nigeria to vote for an end to the blockade of Cuba at the United Nations General Assembly

We, a coalition comprising the two labour centres in the country; the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC ) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), radical progressive groups, intellectuals in the Academic unions, Civil Society and Human Rights organisations organised as the Nigerian Movement of Solidarity with Cuba, bring you greetings.

We write to express our desire and the hope of millions of the Nigerian people that our country should vote at the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 for the resolution demanding a final end to the blockade against Cuba imposed by the United States since February 7, 1962. This final push is necessary because the American establishment has treated with contempt, the 28 resolutions adopted by the UN General Assembly condemning the blockade.

Your Excellency, Nigeria as a country has consistently voted against the blockade, and at this final stage, we need to make our vote emphatic. This will be in line with the February 7, 2021 Resolution of the African Union (AU) Heads of State Summit, which in declaring “its solidarity with the People of Cuba” also expressed: “serious concern about the continuous and illegal Economic, Commercial and Financial Blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba.”

Needless to remind Your Excellency that Nigeria’s principled opposition against the blockade is basically in line with the very reason why the United Nations was established in 1945. Specifically, the United Nations Charter and Resolutions (Chapter 1, Article 1, part 2) states that the purpose of the UN Charter is: "To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace."

The right of all countries to self-determination which the US is challenging by its unilateral blockade of Cuba for six decades now, is sacrosanct. It was this principle Nigeria stood for in ensuring independence for all countries particularly in the bloody liberation wars in Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau, Cape Verde, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa. We need not remind ourselves of the fact that thousands of Cuban youths laid down their precious lives on the African soil fighting the forces of Apartheid and militarily defeating them to ensure the liberation of our continent.

Your Excellency, the US blockage against Cuba is tantamount to genocide as it blocks that country from free trade including freely importing and exporting goods, using credit from financial institutions or import life-saving medicines including for the Covid-19 pandemic. At the outbreak of the pandemic, the Chinese business mogul, Jack Ma sent life-saving medicines and emergency Covid-19 materials to various countries including Nigeria and Cuba. While all beneficiary countries received the aid, Cuba was denied because the American embargo forbids airlines delivering such aid to the Cubans.

In financial terms, the accumulated quantifiable cost of the blockade to Cuba over the past sixty years is $1,098,008,000,000. No country can be subjected to such haemorrhage and remain financially healthy.

Your Excellency, we urge our country not just to vote to tear down the walls of the American blockade, but also to give leadership to the African continent in delivering a strong ‘Yes’ vote against this unilateral and inhuman blockade against a sister country with ancestral roots in Africa.

As we look forward to positive results in this universal struggle for human liberation, please accept our high regards.

*🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺*BE INFORMED*🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺!


*Over 578 Thousand Cubans Have Been Fully Vaccinated with a COVID-19 Vaccine!


Cuba is once again in the news for its fight against the pandemic. This morning Cuban President Miguel Diaz- Canel released figures from the Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP) reporting that 578,835 Cubans, from across the country, are now fully vaccinated against Covid -19 after having received all three doses of either Abdala or Soberana 2. This comes three months after starting its immunization campaign, showing the island’s vaccination indicators are now well above the world average.


According to MINSAP, from March 8 to June 11, 1,930,901 people received at least one dose of the Soberana 02 and Abdala which means that 17.3 percent of the Cuban population has already been immunized against the deadly disease.



In that same period, the average of the world’s population vaccinated with at least one dose was 12.5 percent, according to a study by Oxford University’s World in Data. Low-income countries accounted for 0.8 percent of that figure.


The results of the immunization campaign on the island are encouraging. Health authorities assured two doses of Soberana 02 produce antibodies in 80 percent of those vaccinated. The immune response rises to 100 percent after the third dose, “Soberana Plus”.


In May, the island reached a mortality rate of 60 deaths per million inhabitants, which places it among the countries least affected by the pandemic. While the world is scrambling for the few vaccines on the market, which end up in the arms of citizens of the wealthiest countries, Cuba is moving towards full immunization of its population by 2021.


However, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel warned that there is still a long way to go and warned that in the next few days, the number of COVID-19 cases in the country could increase. While Havana has had a slight epidemiological improvement, thanks to the progress of the immunization campaign in the capital, the rest of the island could experience a jump in contagions.


“We are not doing things right. The population needs to raise the risk perception. Vaccines alone will not put an end to COVID-19 transmission, so we need to continue to strictly comply with health measures,” the president said during a government meeting attended by local authorities from each province.


The new strains of COVID-19 are generating greater transmission at a faster rate, but this is not the only cause of the increase in contagions. “Many citizens are becoming overconfident because the country is immersed in the vaccination campaign and are not complying with the curfew, social distancing, correct use of face masks, and other measures imposed by the government,” Health Minister Jose Angel Portal informed.


On Tuesday, Cuba registered 1,537 new cases, the highest number of infections since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. “The virus is having a high contagiousness in the country,” Health Ministry epidemiological Director Francisco Duran warned.


Authorities are also alarmed by the high number of infections being reported among Cuban children and adolescents. In the last 24 hours, 263 children under the age of 20 were diagnosed with the disease, bringing to 40,000 the number of pediatric-aged patients who have been infected with COVID-19 since 2020.


The increase of children in hospital centers due to the virus prompted the Ministry of Health to include them in the clinical trial phase of Soberana 02. This Monday, 25 volunteers between 12 and 18 years old received the first dose of the Cuban vaccine developed by the Finlay Vaccine Institute (IFV).


Cuba is the only country worldwide that is giving equal priority to the elderly, people with underlying diseases, and minors. “In these months of struggle, the government has joined forces with the Cuban biotechnology industry.


No one will be left helpless, everyone matters. We are not stopping in our quest to have the entire population protected from this new threat,” Díaz-Canel clarified.

Sovereign Debt: Venezuela announces deal with individual creditors

Sovereign Debt: Venezuela announces deal with individual creditors


CARACAS, Venezuela: The Venezuelan government announced on Friday an agreement with individual creditors to restructure terms of its sovereign debt.

Because the government has been in default for three years, the deal is intended to ease terms of the debt so it could fulfill its financial obligations.

The Ministry of Economy, Finance and Foreign Trade said the deal is proof of “the permanent will of the issuers to comply with their obligations, regardless of the effects that external factors may have caused on the payment capacity of the issuers.”

It said the agreement was based on a proposal by the government in September that consisted of interrupting accruing interests in exchange for negotiating a restructure of the defaulted debt.

Vice President Delcy Rodriguez said at the time that the country is committed to fulfilling its obligations despite international pressures.

"Venezuela has always been characterized by faithfully fulfilling its payment obligations for foreign debt services, despite the multiform criminal aggression perpetrated against the country," said Rodriguez.

The announcement Friday mentions that the deal is no longer available in its current form to creditors who refused to negotiate in September.

But the ministry made clear the Venezuelan is willing to talk and negotiate with creditors “with the purpose of achieving a debt restructuring in accordance with the rights and interests of all parties.”

And for creditors in countries with tense diplomatic and financial relations with the Venezuelan government, the announcement said: “For those bondholders who may have some type of limitation arising from their respective laws, national regulations or others and that limits them to establish contact with the issuers, it will be expected until such limitation is overcome in order to establish the conversations to which there may be the place.”
