Pastors for Peace Congratulate Cuban Doctors

Matanzas, Jul 28 (AIN) Members of the 16th Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba congratulated Cuban doctors for their dedication when providing their services to many peoples around the world.

Francisco Escarza Garcia of Mexico called on the doctors to continue their praiseworthy efforts during a visit to the Faustino Perez Hospital in the province of Matanzas on Thursday.

The more than 30 caravan participants from several nations showed interest in learning about the most common diseases treated at the hospital as well as the technology used and the effects of the US blockade against the island regarding
public health.

Carmen Rosa Martinez, director of the hospital, explained the functioning of the institution and how in spite of the blockade, Cuba has one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world and is modernizing its installations and equipment in order to elevate the quality of patient treatment.

The Pastors for Peace are carrying out an intense program in Matanzas. On Wednesday they visited the Museum of the Battle of Ideas, in Cardenas, and Thursday afternoon they will meet foreign students and religious leaders at a theology seminary.

Divided into four groups the more than 145 members of the 16th caravan are exchanging with Cubans in Villa Clara, Havana and Matanzas provinces and the special municipality of the Isle of Youth. Before coming to Cuba the group visited more than 130 cities in the US and Canada collecting donations and advocating change in US Cuba-policy.

In the mean time, Lucius Walker –the organization’s founder and leader- and other caravan members remain at the US-Mexico border demanding the right to take to Cuba a bus that carries computers that the US government refuses to let pass.

Interesting.  The Pastors for Peace are carrying out an intense program by visiting museums and meeting foreign students and religious leaders?

Of course, the state of Cuban "free" healthcare has been exposed at The Real Cuba.

If you haven't been following the story you might not understand the last paragraph.  When the caravan reached the U.S. - Mexican border, federal agents searched the goods to be sure it all was legal.  Computers and such are considered war material and can't be exported without a license.  The Pastors know this - they've been through it several times before. They say the Cubans need PCs. Yes, they do, but they won't get them even if the Pastors are allowed to bring them into the country.

Why not? Because fidel has banned sales of personal computers to Cubans. Any computers allowed in would only go to support the tyrannical government.

I fear my sirimba is about to become a patatú.
