Banjul, 17 Jun (Prensa Latina) The Gambian newspapers The Point and Daily News today echoed the campaign launched by American actor Danny Glover to award the Nobel Peace Prize to Cuban doctors and health workers.
Both newspapers quoted Glover’s Twitter account, which confirmed the beginning of concrete actions in the United States to get the Medical Brigades of the largest of the West Indies fighting the Covid-19 worldwide nominated for the well-known international award.
In a web conference organized by the Cuban solidarity networks in the United States and Canada, the artist pointed out that the response given by the Caribbean nation to the pandemic, with the sending of medical brigades to more than twenty countries, began 60 years ago.
The campaign, launched the day before in the United States, has so far been supported by prominent intellectuals, artists, politicians, numerous organizations and citizens from all continents who recognize the outstanding contribution of Cuban health personnel to the lives of human beings.
Among the main supporters of promoting the award for the Caribbean nation’s winners are, in addition to Glover, Nobel Peace Prize winner Adolfo Pérez Esquivel from Argentina, former President of Ecuador Rafael Correa, writers Alice Walker and Noam Chomsky, as well as filmmakers Oliver Stone and Petra Costa, the latter four from the United States.
