Members of the “Venceremos" Brigade Describe Bush Plan as FallaciousPINAR DEL RIO, Cuba.- After seeing for themselves reflected in this city the principles of accessibility and universality of Cuban health services, the members of the Venceremos Brigade of solidarity with Cuba described as fallacious the pretension of the Bush Plan to change this service on the island.
They toured the Provincial Eye Center annexed to the Abel Santamaria Hospital, where in less than five years 35,570 patients have been operated on.
Cathy Carlson, leader of the group, refuted the words of the former US president, which points out in his program that while Cuba provides health services to other nations it denies them to Cubans.
The so-called "Bush Plan for the democratization of Cuba" is a trick of the enemies of the Revolution and it’s, in essence, false, she specified.
The 37 members of the 42nd “Venceremos” contingent carry out a program of exchanges with the population in this province, meeting at socioeconomic and service centers as well as in communities, while at the eye center they received detailed information about its services.
After delivering a donation of medicaments to the health center, one of the members of the brigade, Benjamin Ramos, who is also the coordinator of the Committee in Solidarity with The Five in New York, pointed out that the Cuban antiterrorists have been unfairly incarcerated in the United States since 1998.
He said that his organization has a network that for six years has spread information about the case of Gerardo, Antonio, Rene, Ramon and Fernando, who were contributing from the US to prevent terrorist acts against Cuba. New York, he pointed out, is a city where many races, religious beliefs and political and ideological affiliations converge: to spread the truth and sensitize as many people as we can about their case so they can return to their country is our objective.
