Canadian Network On Cuba condemns US war on Cuba: ‘Hands Off Cuba!’

The Canadian Network On Cuba was founded on September 6, 2002 and has chapters coast-to-coast. It states “We are committed to the strengthening of friendship and solidarity between the peoples of Canada and Cuba.” 

Isaac Saney, Spokesperson, Canadian Network On Cuba, July 12, 2021

The Canadian Network On Cuba condemns the manipulation of the July 11 events in Cuba by reactionary politicians and the monopoly media in order to create a climate of disinformation and confusion that will be used to justify so-called humanitarian intervention in the heroic island nation.

CPC(M-L) calls for support for revolutionary Cuba

States its opposition to US provocation, foreign interference and attacks on Cub’s sovereignty

Cubans across the country take to the streets July 11, 2021 in defence of the Revolution.

The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist), known for its consistent and principled stands on international issues, has issued a statement on the current events in Cuba and the attempts to spread social chaos and incite counter-revolution on the island republic. These events, orchestrated by the monopoly media, occur when, on June 23, for the 29th consecutive time, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly rejected the U.S. economic war against Cuba by a vote of 184 to 2. It highlights that instead of acting to end the US brutal blockade now, “The Government of Canada is appeasing these counterrevolutionary actions and must be called on to cease and desist.” As an example of its hostility to Canadian-Cuban friendship, recall that in March 2020 deputy prime minister Chrystia Freeland blocked an agreement between the Southern Manitoba Chiefs and Cuba for medical assistance to combat the Covid pandemic and instead deployed the military.

For the information of readers, we are printing the full text of its statement:

Let’s make a concrete move to defend the long tradition of friendship between Canada and Cuba: Let’s sign the petition

By Pierre Soublière

For more than 75 years, Canada and Quebec have had excellent relations with Cuba. Similarly, since 1992, Canada has been adding its voice to those of the international community to reject U.S. economic sanctions against Cuba. This almost unanimous condemnation was renewed on 24 June when all UN member countries – except the US and Israel – voted once again to end the sanctions.

Cuban solidarity network condemns Garneau-Blinken interventionist meeting

By Isaac Saney, CNC Spokesperson, March 2, 2021

Vancouver monthly pickets against U.S. blockade of Cuba, February 17, 2020

The Canadian Network on Cuba (CNC) is outraged by the communique from Global Affairs Canada summarizing the February 26 virtual meeting between Foreign Minister Marc Garneau and U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken. It is an open declaration that Ottawa, lock step with the United States, arrogates to itself the right to intervene in the affairs countries across the globe, particularly in the Americas.

No to US government’s recent move to include Cuba on its list of states that sponsor terrorism

Table de concertation de solidarité Québec-Cuba

The Table de concertation de solidarité Québec-Cuba (TCSQC) joins its voice with the rest of the world in firmly condemning the decision of the U.S. government to include Cuba on its list of states that sponsor terrorism. On January 11, nine days before Donald Trump’s mandate ends and the new president takes office, [U.S. Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo announced that “The State Department has designated Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism for repeatedly providing support for acts of international terrorism in granting safe harbour to terrorists.” Continue reading

Cuba is not a state that sponsors terrorism

Editorial of TML Daily, January 15, 2021

The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) condemns the decision of the Trump administration in its final days to designate Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, which the U.S. State Department did on Monday, January 11. We call on all Canadians to denounce this baseless designation and demand it be retracted immediately. We also call on Canadians to urge the government of Canada to disassociate itself from this outrageous move and call on the international community to refuse to recognize it and not to appease it in any way.

Canada’s relations with Caricom: Self-serving definition of what it means to be a ‘vital partner’

Heads of Government reaffirm solidarity with Cuba at the 31st CARICOM Inter-Sessional Summit held from February 18 -19 in St Michael, Barbados.

By TONY SEED (February 23) – The meeting of the regime change Lima Group hosted by Canada on February 20 in Ottawa comes right on the heels of Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne’s meeting on February 18-19 with leaders of Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in Bridgetown, Barbados. He was sent as a substitute for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The 15-member organization[1] has served as an effective block to attempts by the U.S. and its allies to use the discredited Organization of American States (OAS) as a political weapon against Venezuela. It has  denied them the number of votes needed to take action against Venezuela in the name of the OAS. This led the U.S. and Canada to set up the illegitimate Lima Group outside the OAS for the purpose of advancing their illegal regime change project. Continue reading

An Open Letter to party leaders in the 2019 federal election of Canada

Re: Canada-Cuba Relations

I am writing to you on behalf of the Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC), which represents Canada-Cuba friendship and solidarity organizations across Canada, ranging from Vancouver to Halifax and with over 50,000 in membership. One of the CNC’s principal objectives is advocating that Canadian foreign policy regarding Cuba remains based on equality and respect for sovereignty and the right of selfdetermination. Consequently, the CNC is deeply concerned by recent decisions and actions of the Government of Canada. Canadians are very worried that recent developments in Ottawa-Havana relations could lead to the mirroring of the policy of the United States. Continue reading
