I just can't believe it.
We better get used to the idea that this will be going on forever.
Today, The Greeley Tribune published an announcement that some group called Women International League for Peace will be sponsoring the screening of Michael Moore's film about health care in America.
At a local Family Resource Center.
My godness, masses kept being poisoned.
Yeah, right, here we go with the Sicko saga. Again.
Then, with this big mouth I have, that I have developed considerably since I became a reporter (and haven't been able to get that ink out my veins, right Mami hen?); I just couldn't help to post a comment below the note, in the paper's website.
Fully signed, you know, I am medio gallega anyway.
Here goes my litany, one more time. (Let's bet who will get tired first!)
... those reading these posts will need to excuse me, but I just can not keep my mouth shut when reading this announcement.
It would very nice (not say fair) that the Women International League for Peace consider to sponsor also the videos showed by Fox Hannity and Colmes, or the preview segment at 20/20 about the reality if the Cuban hospitals, in the so called health care paradise.
They should tell attendees to go online, at The Real Cuba site, so they can learn, first hand, about the reality of the health care in Cuba, for Cubans -- not for the “dollars paying tourists” and high ranked military and government official. (They can search another views in the Internet; Cubans can’t).
They should let Greeley people know about the Cuban apartheid --including in the health care system-- and let them know about the videos a Cuban doctor, dissident and human rights fighter, managed to send out of the island, without the government's authorization (of course!), so the rest of the world could see Cuba's reality first hand.
Do not contribute to feed America's ignorance about Cuba.
Do not fool Greeley's residents about the reality of a communist dictatorship where the health care paradise is just a plain lie and where honest working individuals are dying for democracy; despite being called “worms” and “mercenaries paid by the US’.
For Christ's sake; do not do it just a day after Cuban dissidents, human rights fighters and political prisoners' wives were being beaten up, arrested and dragged through Havana street for daring to honor human rights and calling for an end to the Cuban apartheid (by the way, not with violence, but with a silent and pacific walk around a park in Havana).
You said you are an organization for peace; hopefully, is it not for some kind of biased peace. Looking for peace is a noble quest, just do it for the whole world, including Cuba.
Please, do not take sides with a dictatorship where political prisoners, independent journalists and librarians and human rights fighters are dying in Castro's gulag's jails. By showcasing Moore’s film without an alternative view you are, indirectly, exactly doing that.
It’s up to you. You could choose to keep feeding the lies sold in the world by individuals like Michael Moore. But that is not what America's deserves.
Americans deserved more because, at the end, history will always judge those who side up with criminals and murders. It might take time, it might come slowly, but justice always arrives.
America: do not be fooled by a scum like Michael Moore. If Cuba is such a paradise, like he describes in Sicko, what the hell is he doing here? Why he doesn't move there and enjoy the wonders of Castro's gulag?
Bloggers and non-bloggers out there reading this post, please, do me a favor: take a couple of minutes of your time to post to that article about the reality of Cuba's health care.
Some people may ask themselves "Who is this crazy lady taking part on Cuban issues so fiercely?". But you know there is some kind of pandemic: most of them are just totally clueless. The peaceful league of women are not another example. No that I care that much the crazy thought, but I feel, deep in my heart, that truth must prevail, by any means.
