Aus GREEN SCREEN
USA Kongres wird diese Tage über die Aufhebung des Verbotes frei nach Kuba zu reisen entscheiden.
Aus dem vorigen Jahr ist bekannt, dass die Mehrheit der Representanten (DEM. und REP) für die Aufhebung ist.
Die letzte Entscheidung bleibt dann beim Bush.

Unabhängig davon welche Einstellung die Leute zu dem pol. System in Kuba haben,
sollen wir diese Aktion unterstützen, meine ich.
Vote To Lift The Us Ban On Travel To Cuba
URL to send letter to your state rep
Wortlaut des Briefes an den Representanten:
I am writing to you as a constituent who believes that the ban on legal travel by Americans to Cuba short-changes my constitutional rights and should be lifted.
I urge you to vote YES on the Flake amendment to end the travel ban and to vote NO on false alternatives that delay reaching that goal. I believe our government should take this long-overdue action now, without delay.
The Freedom to travel should be the right of all citizens; by voting YES on the Flake travel amendment you are restoring this right to your constituents and all Americans.
Thank you very much.
From the Center for International Policy CIP Cuba Travel Ban Info
\"In early September, Congress will vote on whether to give Americans their freedom back: the freedom to travel to Cuba. Now is the time to contact your Congressional representative with a message that is simple, direct, and clear: Vote for Freedom, lift the ban on legal travel by Americans to Cuba. The vote on Cuba travel will occur in the House of Representatives in just the next few days. The freedom to travel amendment will be offered by Congressman Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and other members of the House Cuba Working Group.
Sanctions like the travel ban have existed in law for forty years, and they only serve to punish the Cuban and American people. There are voices in the Congress who like things just the way they are; these zealous supporters of the embargo and the travel ban will say anything and do anything to keep Americans from traveling to Cuba. Are they playing politics with the Cuban-American vote in Florida? Yes, they are!
But the American people want the travel ban lifted, and our Members of Congress need to know that they have your support for changing a policy that short-changes our constitutional rights.\"
