Documentary film maker, literacy and social justice activist, Catherine Murphy speaks about her ten years in Cuba; the experience of tens of thousands of young Cuban volunteers in
what became the 1961 National Campaign for Literacy that taught 700,000 illiterate peasants to read and write, and about which she made the documentary film Maestra; and the Cuban peoples work to break free from the legacy of colonial oppression that saddled their economy with an over dependence on the sugar industry. Cuba, in spite of the United States campaign to destroy Cuba's commitment to share what it learns as a society, is a leader in biotechnology and health care. It has successfully developed two Covid-19 vaccines against the pandemic that it is offering to share as well as provide to it own citizens. But the U.S. economic blockade has created a critical shortage of syringes on the island. They have the vaccine but require the syringes to administer it. Having limited the pandemic on the island until now, a spike in cases, likely due to tourism, makes it imperative to vaccinate all Cubans. Global Health Partners and Cuba Solidarity committees are collecting funds to send
syringes to Cuba.
