Lift the embargo. Fight the pandemic.

Covid-19 illustrates the logic of international solidarity: we are only as healthy as our sickest neighbour.

But governments around the world are responding to the pandemic by hoarding supplies, blocking essential aid, and blaming foreigners for their own failed response.

Cuba, meanwhile, has led with solidarity. Cuban medical brigades and doctors are operating in over 20 countries around the world — in Europe, Africa and across Latin America. For the first time, Cuban doctors have been deployed to northern Italy, and in Andorra, one newspaper noted the arrival of the Cuban medical brigade has helped save their health care system from collapse.

The United States, however, continues to punish the Cuban people with its illegal and inhumane blockade. Even in the midst of this unprecedented pandemic, the US has threatened foreign governments for accepting Cuban medical support, and even used its blockade to prevent essential supplies donated from China — masks, tests, and ventilators among them — from reaching Cuban shores. Estimates of the embargo’s damage to the Cuban medical system last year alone exceed $100 million.

Cuba is not alone. Punishing US economic sanctions remain in place for countries including Iran or Venezuela. While UN human rights officials have called on the US to “waive sanctions that undermine the capacity of Cuba and other countries to respond effectively to the pandemic and save lives,” these calls have been repeatedly ignored.

We are campaigning with the Cuba Solidarity Campaign to end the embargo and support Cuba’s efforts to combat the pandemic around the world.

The Cuba Solidarity Campaign is a UK-based organisation fighting to lift the illegal blockade of Cuba, to end the US occupation at Guantánamo Bay, and to defend the Cuban people’s freedom from foreign intervention. With more than 5,000 members and over 400 national, regional and branch trade unions in the UK, the Cuba Solidarity Campaign exemplifies internationalist principles in practice.

The Progressive International aims to support activists and organizations fighting inhumane sanctions around the world. If you would like to get involved with the Progressive International — or organize actions related to this campaign — please write to

  54. Did you know these truths on CBD OIL and Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil? Cannabinoids are isolated from hemp using supercritical CO2 extraction. Thanks to modern-day technology, the resulting solution is clean, totally free of heavy metals and unneeded waxes, naturally present in the plant, and the sucked liquid has a normal, oily consistency. CBD oil contains cannabidiol as a base ingredient and may include only trace amounts of tetrahydroxycannabidiol (THC). It is advised by doctors and pharmacists as an antioxidant and substance that obstructs the action of proinflammatory cytokines (proteins), e.g. in Crohn’s illness or ulcerative intestine. RSO oil has a low CBD material, while high THC. Of course, the crucial job of RSO is to trigger a psychedelic result, although it can likewise stimulate “ill” brain structures. It deserves understanding that supplementation of this type is mostly utilized by people to whom basic therapy does not bring relief in disease. The synergistic (enhancing) action of CBD and THC relative to each other is used here. When utilized independently, both cannabinoids can do much more together than. In addition, they collectively stimulate the department of non-active nerve cells, nurture the fatty envelope of the nerves, and avoid myelin swelling that triggers loss of function in some autoimmune illness. There are also stories where marijuana in its natural type softened spasticity, minimized the frequency of convulsions and seizures, and reduced undesirable scrapie in Parkinson’s disease. This is where the concept of getting RSO, planned just for chronically ill individuals, originated . Both marijuana oil type CBD and RSO likewise include other cannabinoids, such as cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG). The trick is not, nevertheless, that CBD often has actually a structure broadened to include flavones, flavonoids, terpenes, terpenoids, amino acids and omega acids.

Oil of marijuana in a type of hobby APR contains percentages of CBD, stabilized by the existence of THC. Makers concentrate on the synergistic effect of one substance relative to the other, while deserting the presence of CBC and CBG. Why such a choice? – Modern clinical research study reveals that CBD + THC handle severe autoimmune illness, while CBC or CBG reveal minimal activity in the existence of both substances, just like flavonoids, terpenes or flavones, therefore their content in the service seems to be unneeded. In addition, the cannabis stress from which THC and CBD are obtained contain negligible amounts of other cannabinoids. RSO oil is completely unlawful in Poland, which is why it can not be obtained in any legally operating shop on the marketplace. Naturally, there are a number of amateur techniques for getting it, but it’s great to know that compounds acquired synthetically in house labs doubt, untested, and the impact unknown. The solvent for the production of family RSO is typically fuel, alcohol and even kerosene, which instead of treating, toxin. Alcohols and their like impair cannabinoids, therefore in truth, they don’t bring anything brand-new to the medical world. Marijuana oil has actually currently marked a brand-new era in which guy stopped to fear what is unknown, and began to uncover what our ancestors had actually currently observed and utilize the considerable potential, initially glance, a little strange relationships, associated generally with pathology. Medical cannabis, contrary to its name, does not imply fermented female inflorescences and leaves containing psychoactive substances coiled in so-called “Joints”, but an useful oil without psychedelic THC. A standard individual, after taking doses of medicinal cannabis and achieving the proper state of cannabinoids in the blood, can delight in increased immunity, decreased vulnerability to cancer, postponed aging and reduced threat of stroke or cardiovascular disease. CBD oil consists of cannabidiol as a base active ingredient and may consist of just trace amounts of tetrahydroxycannabidiol (THC). RSO oil has a low CBD content, while high THC. Both cannabis oil type CBD and RSO likewise consist of other cannabinoids, such as cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG). CBD medical marijuana oil is a rather useful blend of cannabinoids, designed to protect against 21st century illness. Oil of marijuana in a kind of hobby APR includes little amounts of CBD, stabilized by the presence of THC.
