From March 14th to April 22nd, 2005, the 61st session of the UN Commission on Human Rights will take place in Geneva, where once more the US government will try to pass a resolution against Cuba.  We know that in fact, there is no basis to condemn Cuba on the issue of human rights violations because their record on respecting and upholding basic human rights is acknowledged world wide as an international model. However, given the United States' belligerent stance towards many countries around the world, we strongly believe that any human rights resolution passed in Geneva could be used to justify increased aggression against Cuba††††††††

 

The Commission must represent every United Nations member State and ensure respect for the rights of all men and women worldwide.It is significant, however, that within the UN Commission, during last yearís sessions, it was impossible to evaluate or even debate the atrocious violations of human rights taking place in U.S. prisons in Abuh Ghraib and Guantanamo.

 

Donít allow the UN Commission to be used

to legitimize the Bush administrationís aggressive policy against the poor of the world!

 

Join us for a public show of support for the Cuban people and to denounce the USí attempts at bribing and pressuring member states to condemn Cuba and similar countries, who have done nothing more than provide their people with an alternative to poverty and hunger.Signatures gathered towards this aim, which will have been sent to the member states of the UN Commission on Human Rights in Geneva on Monday, April 11, will be presented to the Cuban Ambassador.†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
