Petition to allow US humanitarian aid to Cuba

Posted September 10, 2008 by publisher in Cuba Politics.

Based on an email received by Merri Ansara of Common Ground Travel

Dear President Bush, Majority Leader Reid, and Speaker Pelosi
cc:Senator McCain and Senator Obama
Because of the devastation suffered by Cuba from Hurricanes Gustav and Ike, and the history of conflict and suspicion between our countries, creative means must be found to enable the traditional compassion of Americans to express itself in assistance to the Cuban people in a timely fashion.
We urge an immediate 90 day suspension by Presidential order, or by legislation, of Treasury and Commerce Department restrictions and licensing requirements for humanitarian travel and remittances by all Americans and assistance from not-for-profit organizations granted tax-exempt status by the IRS.
