SOLIDARITIES IN THE US DONATE 15,000 POUNDS OF POWDERED MILK TO CUBA

Solidarity organizations in the United States will send 15,000 pounds of powdered milk to Cuba, which will be distributed in the pediatric hospitals of the island’s capital. The cargo, which will arrive in Havana this Saturday from Miami, was collected by the Puentes groups of love, The People’s Forum and CodePink, whose representatives will accompany the shipment. The funds raised for the milk and the charter flight come from an avalanche of individual donations from people across the United States, including many Cuban-Americans. The shipment is an expression of the growing rejection of the American public opinion to the economic policies of its Government destined to strangle the Cuban economy. (LP)

PANAMA ORGANIZATIONS REQUEST SOCIAL USE OF CHANNEL INCOME

Popular organizations in Panama presented an express request for a social use for the income from the exploitation of the interoceanic highway. The economist and university professor Maribel Gordón proposed that the excess income left by that facility be used to promote national and social development plans. He said that those funds can be dedicated to education, health, housing and social security. He added that they could also dedicate themselves to the continuity of the Social Security Fund’s Disability, Old Age and Death program, which would benefit the workers and the people. (Telesur)
