Sri Lankan newspaper publishes experience in Cuba of woman from US

Sri Lankan newspaper publishes the experience in Cuba of young woman from the U.S.

Colombo, Jun 23 (Prensa Latina) The Sri Lanka Guardian newspaper today published an article by writer Amanda Yee on her recent visit to Cuba and the effects of the U.S. blockade on the Caribbean nation.

In her article, Three key conclusions from my visit to Cuba, the U.S. social activist, who was on the island to deliver medicines for the treatment of cancer in children, also highlighted the democracy project defended by Cubans, centered on the protection of human rights and full dignity.

Yee pointed out that the Cuban revolution offers key lessons for U.S. progressives on how to create a society in a way that favors the majority, not a select minority.

She pointed out that there is no sector of society that the blockade does not affect since it has caused extreme shortages of food and fuel.

The activist, a resident of Brooklyn, verified the impossibility of farmers to grow food on a large scale due to the difficulties in purchasing the necessary pesticides, fertilizers and equipment.

She said that in an exchange with a doctor at a children’s hospital, she learned about the need for medicines, as well as the raw materials and the science and technology to produce them.

This is the cruel price that the Cuban people continue to pay for their socialist project, he said. jrr/oda/lrd
