Progressive International demands Cuba’s removal from SSOT list

Washington, Jun 28 (Prensa Latina) More than 250 organizations globally, grouped in the Progressive International (PI) founded in the United States in 2018, demand this Friday the immediate removal of Cuba from Washington's State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT) list.

“Cuba is not a sponsor of terrorism,” the PI affirmed in a letter of appeal published on its X profile, explaining that the Caribbean nation is indeed a sponsor of health, peace, and liberation.

Across its revolutionary history, more than 605,000 healthcare professionals and technicians have provided their services in some 165 countries, the text stressed, referring to Cuban cooperation in that field.

It also stated that Cuba sponsors peace for its role in the peace agreements with Colombia and liberation for the heroic deeds of the Cuban internationalist forces in the liberation of Angola and Namibia, besides the elimination of Apartheid in South Africa.

The letter recalled that Cuba has suffered for more than six decades a US blockade that, as the April 1960 infamous secret memorandum by then Undersecretary of State Lester Mallory stated, was intended to lead to the people’s desperation to overthrow their social project.
