The Executive Secretariat of São Paulo Forum‘s is driving and promoting a civil appeal to influence global political actors into suspending the economic and political blockade against Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela in the midst of the alarming health situation worldwide connected to the SARS-CoV-2 as well as COVID-19 pandemic.
In the midst of these problems, some nations that have already been the victims of unilateral coercive measures have unsuccessfully requested the lifting of sanctions in order to purchase supplies, medical equipment and medicines for their health system.
In particular Cuba remains subject to the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States, which however has acted as a paradigm of solidarity by dispatching Medical Brigades to more than a dozen countries upon their behests.
