“The American Anthropological Association at its annual business meeting of November 18, 1993, condemns the U.S. Cuban embargo and asks that: The U.S. Congress and President [William Bill] Clinton adopt a consistent humanitarian policy of alleviating human suffering by ending its Cuban embargo, and in particular lifting its ban on the sale of food and medical supplies and equipment; and Adopt a more human approach to resolving differences with Cuba by encouraging a freer exchange of ideas and persons, lifting for example, its restrictions on U.S. citizens’ travel to Cuba and Cuban citizens’ travel to the U.S., including Cuban scholars and Students seeking academic degrees, and its ban on the sale of paper desperately needed for educational purposes.” [Con Embargo]
