DIG DEEP FOR CUBA

ACFS WA Branch President

The Australia-Cuba Friendship Society (ACFS) branches around Australia have launched an Appeal for Cuba with a target of $30,000 to $50,000. Most ACFS branches have pledged some donations that will be deposited directly to the ACFS WA bank account. The CPA supports the Appeal and encourages members and readers to donate and help break the criminal US blockade on Cuba.

The US administration has tried to dissuade governments around the world from accepting assistance from Cuba in fighting the pandemic. In response, the Australia-Cuba Friendship Society is coordinating a national campaign to assist Cuba in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic at home and abroad by raising money to purchase essential medical supplies for Cuba.

The pandemic requires a united, global struggle for the well being of every person on the planet. Dig deep for socialist Cuba!

A My Cause appeal was set up for all Party Members, supporters, the general public and Guardian readers to stand in solidarity with Cuba:

For donations over $500 it is recommended to be deposited directly to the ACFS WA account to avoid any possible fees or delays.

Cheques can be made to ACFS WA and posted to: PO Box 1455 South Perth WA 6951.

To organise bank transfers please email acfsperth@gmail.com or call 0419 812 872.

The funds collected will be sent to Cuba so they can purchase personal protective equipment and any other needs to fight COVID-19 at home and abroad.

Please circulate the above ACFS Appeal link.


For some background information on Cuba’s solidarity abroad listen to ABC Radio National interview with Professor John Kirk of the Halifax University in Canada.
