Demands are being raised for a government investigation of the murder of a progressive young Cuban immigrant in Puerto Rico on April 28, 1979.
The U.S. OCB paid almost $700,000 to journalists and other opinion molders in Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America in return for their dissemination of anti-Cuban propaganda.
Beginning in 1982 the list has included Cuba as a "State Sponsor of Terrorism." Others this year are Iran, Sudan, and Syria.
Cuban doctors contribute to the long term construction of systems of public health throughout the global South, health systems that were abandoned or disregarded during decades of neo-liberalism.
