Cuba and ALBA Lead Ebola Fight in Africa

Cuban Health Workers

When Cuba sent 165 Health Workers to West Africa on 2nd October 2014 to assist in the fight to combat Ebola, they gave not only great practical help but also exemplary leadership to the world.

The meeting in Havana of the ALBA countries to agree a plan to fight Ebola followed this. The plan included a number of measures to train health workers and build infrastructure in the ALBA countries to protect their own population as well as mobilising world support for the Africans.

The specialist Ebola unit went to Sierra Leone followed by 83 medical professionals who went to Liberia and Guinea. This brought the number of Cuban health workers fighting a range of diseases to 4000, winning praise from the Africans. Bolivia announced a donation of one million dollars and Venezuela sent money and resources.

As the US has concentrated its aid in using their military engineers to build Health Centres, Fidel Castro called on the US to cooperate in the anti- Ebola strategy by joining forces with Cuban doctors and nurses. There was no response initially but press criticism in New York resulted in a statement by Kerry that they would cooperate.

The world waits to see how they act!

In Scotland the aim must be to have a non-separatist majority who are willing to work together to prevent the SNP and allies having a disruptive second referendum.
No to the break up of Britain! Deal with this before we can rebuild.

#votelabour today to build a better, fairer future after the pandemic.

Difficult times for the unity of Britain. Stopping an overall majority for separatists depends on tactical voting by unionists & their large turnout; a lack of cohesion among the pro independence parties; & winning over undecided voters.
Vote for Unity.

Support for Scottish independence has dropped from a high point at the start of the year, and polls are showing a 50/50 split on the question. In this crucial election many workers intend to vote tactically to maintain the union & thwart the separatists.
