Cuba, Si!

By Ted Glick

“I am confident that the truth will win out someday, and justice will be done, but even if
that is not the case, rest assured that I will always feel the same way. When you have a
cause to fight for, a people to defend, a family that supports you, and a person you love,
and who loves you back; when you know you can’t let them down, you can face up to
anything, no matter how difficult it is, with all the serenity and dignity in the world.”

Gerardo Hernandez, serving two life sentences plus 15 years as one of the Cuban Five, from
a letter to his wife two days after sentencing in December, 2001

I don’t remember when I first heard of the Cuban Five. I know I read about them in the
newspapers when they were convicted of espionage about a year and a half ago in a Miami,
Fl. courtroom. And since then I’ve seen various emails and articles written by U.S.
progressives about this latest injustice perpetrated by our “criminal justice system.”
I’ve read enough to know that these were trumped-up, political charges having nothing to
do with espionage but, instead, another in a long line of attacks on the Cuban people’s
right to have a government of their own choosing.

About a month ago the Cuban Five were mentioned again in the newspapers, this time in
connection with seemingly repressive actions taken by the Cuban government against
hijackers of a ferryboat and those given the name of “dissidents” by the powers-that-be in
the U.S. The conjecture made in the newspaper articles was that the Cuban government might
have rounded up and quickly tried and sentenced 75 “dissidents” in the hope of using them
as bargaining chips to gain the release of the Cuban Five.

I was deeply concerned by the execution of the three ferryboat hijackers. I also felt
that, first, the number of people arrested and tried, and second, the sentences of from
six to 28 years, were excessive. And I was concerned because the newspapers said that the
trials were closed to foreign journalists, with the impression being given that the trials
were essentially closed to the public.

Several weeks later, following research and after reading many statements and points of
view on this subject from progressives that came my way via email, I feel much more sure
about where I stand, how I see this set of issues.

It is clear that these actions by the Cuban government did not come from out of nowhere.
There were a series of provocations by the U.S. government specifically directed against
Cuba at a time of great political tension internationally because of the aggressive and
militaristic U.S. war build-up. The specific chronology of events, as delineated by Cuban
Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque at a press conference on April 9:

-On February 24th James Cason, head of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, convened a
meeting with Cuban “dissidents,” most if not all of them on the U.S. payroll, and makes
statements “aimed at provoking the Cuban government and people.” Since coming to Cuba last
fall Cason has traveled around the island meeting and playing an organizing role for the
pro-U.S. “dissidents.”

-February 28th: The Cuban Five being held in federal prisons around the U.S. are all put
into solitary confinement with, apparently, no word as to how long they will stay there.

-March 7th: The U.S. State Department confirms that the Five had been in “punishment
cells” for nine days.

-March 12th: Two days after being sent a diplomatic note asking him “to cease his openly
provocative actions. . . Mr. Cason organized a new conspiratorial meeting in his own

-March 14th: Another meeting is organized by Cason, this one lasting all day.

-March 18-19: The Cuban government arrests 65 of the “dissidents.” The Cubans describe
them as “mercenaries” because of the money they take from the U.S. government. According
to the Cuban government, “the arrests took place as a result of the unbearable situation
we had been placed in by Mr. Cason’s provocations and irresponsible behavior.” 

-March 19th: A Cuban DC-3 is hijacked to Florida, and “news is leaked to the press that
the authorities [in Florida] were willing to grant the hijackers bail.” 

-March 31st: Another hijacking, this one of an AN-24.

-April 2nd: The ferry was hijacked. According to the Cuban government, the U.S.
government, in violation of usual U.S. procedures and immigration agreements between the
two countries, “said that they were not willing to act in this case as they had always
done and so we took action and solved the problem.” 

-April 3-7: The trials of the now-75 “dissidents” take place. The trials are open to the
public; “on average about 100 people per trial attended the hearings. . . mostly family
members, witnesses and expert witnesses. . . The courts decided that they would not be
open to the press.” 

There is one other piece of information essential to putting Cuba’s actions within their
specific context.

There is an immigration agreement between the U.S. and Cuba. Under it both countries
agreed that at least 20,000 Cubans could legally emigrate to the United States every year.

The agreement year begins on October 1. Between 1999 and 2002, the number of visas given
by the U.S. after the first five months of the agreement year, up until March 1, was
11,600, 10,860, 8,300 and, in 2002, 7,237. 

As of March 1, 2003 a grand total of 505 visas had been granted.

Clearly, there has been a conscious decision by the Bush Administration to slow to a
trickle the emigration process. This is exactly what the right-wing Cubans in Florida
want. They want to provoke an immigration crisis, destabilize Cuba and “create an incident
between Cuba and the United States, [hoping to get] the United States to use aggression
against Cuba.” And all of these developments took place during a period when the Bush
Administration was engaged in a military build-up in the Gulf that then led to the Iraq
invasion. At the same time the Bushites were loudly proclaiming their right to militarily
intervene anywhere in the world as part of their “war on terrorism.” Cuba is one of the
countries on the U.S.’s terrorist list.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

In this context, the actions taken by the Cuban government are understandable. This is not
to say they are laudable. I continue to be disturbed by the use of the death penalty in
particular. Why couldn’t a message have been sent to other potential hijackers by
sentencing the April 2 hijackers to life in prison? And why so many “dissidents” rounded
up? Why not just the leaders? 

I believe that the Cuban government should seriously consider reducing at least some of
the sentences on the 75. I believe that this willingness to take into account the critical
reaction they have received from many supporters around the world would help to repair
some of the political damage that has been done. 

For those of us in the United States, what should we be doing?

Obviously, as indicated by the paragraph above, I think we should be open about our
criticisms. But we have other responsibilities.

We need to get out the truth, the whole story about what led up to the executions and the

A part of that truth is the story of the Cuban Five, five men who were unjustly convicted
in a Miami courtroom, five Cuban patriots and heroes. 

When were these five arrested and charged with espionage? According to Leonard Weinglass,
speaking at a National Lawyers Guild conference last October, it happened in 1998 when the
United States, responding to Cuban urgings, finally “sent the number two man in the FBI
together with a delegation to Havana. They sat down with their Cuban counterparts, and
they were given four large, loose-leaf volumes of information, each volume over three
hundred pages in length. They were given two hours and forty minutes of videotapes and
eight cassettes of audiotapes that had been compiled on the terrorist network [of
right-wing Cubans] that existed and was operating out of Miami [and which had carried out
armed infiltration and bombings throughout the ‘90s.] The FBI delegation thanked them for
the information and told them they would get back to them in two weeks. . . Instead,
within 90 days, they had rounded up a group of people in southern Florida. . . who were
gathering this information on the criminal activities on these groups in southern Florida,
and they charged them with espionage in the United States for their work.” 

So much for a “war on terrorism.”

The United States has been conducting a low-intensity war against Cuba for 44 years. Going
against the opinion of virtually the entire world, Israel excepted, it keeps in place a
destructive economic embargo. There have been scores of attempted assassinations of Fidel
Castro, numerous acts of economic sabotage, the blowing up of Cuban civilian airliners,
bombings of tourist hotels, violations of Cuban airspace, lies and more lies, and the
financing of anti-government activism.

Despite this, and despite the economic devastation created when the USSR collapsed, Cuba
continues to survive as a struggling model of an alternative. By no means a perfect
society, it has far and away a higher standard of living than any other country south of
the Mexican border, as well as universal literacy, a first-class health care system and
many other positive attributes.

Cuba is a country in need of defense—critical, but respectful defense--by all people who
value justice and human dignity, especially by those of us in the belly of the beast which
has caused so much hardship for Cubans and people all over the world. 

Cuba, si!!!!!

Subject: Brazil accuses US of sterilizing millions

FWD from Curtis Cost ccross@kua.net <ccross@kua.net>:

Baobab Press --Vol. 1 Number 12

The charge: millions sterilised
to meet U.S. political objectives

A U.S.-sponsored program that resulted in the sterilisation of nearly half
of Brazil's women has prompted a formal congressional inquiry, sponsored by=

more than 165 legislators from every political party that is represented in=

the Brazilian legislature. The investigation was initiated after informatio=
about a secret U.S. National Security Council memorandum on American
population control objectives in developing countries was published in the
Jornal de Brasilia, Hova do Povo (Rio de Janeiro), Jornal do Brasil, and
other major newspapers in early May.

That U.S. foreign policy document, officially known as National Security
Study Memorandum 200 or NSSM 200, detailed a plan to target thirteen large
de- veloping nations with intensive efforts to promote population
"policies'' that would allow the U.S. to run massive birth control and
sterilisation projects in those countries.

Brazil, the study said, was placed on the list of thirteen target nations
because it "clearly dominates the continent [South America]
demographically,'' and its population was projected to equal that of the
United States by the turn of the century. This, said the report which was
jointly prepared for the National Security Council (NSC) in 1974 by the
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Departments of State and Defence
(DOD), and the Agency for International Development (USAID), suggests "a
growing power status for Brazil in Latin America and on the world scene ove=
the next 25 years.''

The NSC report listed twelve other nations whose growth could give them
increased political influence, and which were also to be targeted under the=

international population program. Those are: Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia,
Pakistan, Indonesia, Turkey, Bangladesh, India, Thailand, the Philippines,
Mexico and Colombia.

The document, which is over 200 pages in length, was written after a
proposed "world population plan of action'' was denounced by large numbers
of African and Latin America nations, by the Vatican, and by the entire
socialist bloc (with the exception of Romania), during a UN population
conference held in Bucharest in 1974.

The formerly-classified strategy document was approved as an integral part
of American foreign policy in 1975 by Brent Scowcroft, who served as then-
President Gerald Ford's security advisor. He occupies the same office today=

under George Bush.

Reports about the document, as well as about the Brazilian inquiry, have
since appeared in every part of Brazil and throughout Central and South

Brazil's Ministry of Health, which had begun an investigation into the
sterilisation program even before the American population strategy document=
were disclosed, has revealed that 44 percent of all Brazilian women between=

the ages of 14 and 55 have been permanently sterilised. The older women
apparently had the operation done when the program started, nearly two
decades ago. News reports charge that many of these women underwent the
operation without their knowledge or consent.

Benedita da Silva of the Workers Party (PT), who represents the residents o=
impoverished sections of Rio de Janeiro known as favelas, will head the
legislative investigation. According to some reports, as many as 90 percent=

of all Brazilian women of African descent have been sterilised. If true,
this would nearly eliminate future generations of black people in Latin
America's largest nation. Brazil's black population is reported to be secon=
in size only to Nigeria's. At least half of Brazil's 154 million people are=

believed to be of African ancestry.

The sterilisation program in Brazil, like those just now beginning in dozen=
of African nations, started as a relatively small, "voluntary'' family
planning campaign, which publicly stressed spacing children rather than
reducing population growth. It quickly and quietly escalated, however,
taking advantage of unfavorable economic conditions -- themselves largely
imposed through the policies of the U.S. and other developed countries -- t=
press for limitations in family size.

The massive sterilisation activities were mainly orchestrated by BEMFAM, th=
Brazilian affiliate of the London-based International Planned Parenthood
Federation, according to news reports.

Several private U.S. population contractors, operating with funds from the
U.S. Agency for International Development, are also involved. These include=

the Pathfinder Fund, the Johns Hopkins University Population Communication
Services project, Family Health International, the John Snow "Enterprise''
program, the Program for the Introduction and Adaptation of Contraceptive
Technology (PIACT), and the Association for Voluntary Surgical
Contraceptive. All have current activities both in Brazil and in numerous
African nations. Some of the Brazilian programs funded through these groups=

are subcontracted to BEMFAM, while other projects are run by the USAID
contractors through paid contacts at Brazilian universities, family plannin=
clinics, firms, and individuals.

In recent years, Brazilian officials have begun to raise objections to the
level of population activities in their country. A large shipment of condom=
from USAID was held up in customs for over a year and then seized by
Brazilian agents as contraband, according to a report released in late 1989=

by the Office of the Inspector General at USAID. The same report advised
that Brazilian authorities had complained that the level of U.S. population=

assistance had become "overwhelming and unnecessary.''

Last summer, health officials began the investigation that showed the
incredibly high sterilisation rate. That information coincided with the
revelations about U.S. intentions to curb births in developing countries.

Aside from advocating a strategy to contain the political influence of larg=
and rapidly growing developing countries, the document stressed the need to=

maintain orderly, pro-U.S. leadership in countries that supply "strategic
and critical'' materials needed for normal U.S. military and industrial
operations. The NSC report stated that the U.S. "will require large and
increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed
countries. That fact gives the U.S. enhanced interest in the political,
economic, and social stability of the supplying countries. Wherever a
lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase
the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to
resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States.''

It advised, too, that the relatively young populations characteristic of
societies with high birthrates give momentum to nationalist movements
because young people can more easily be persuaded to attack foreign
investments and other influences seen as "imperialistic.''

The document also detailed a strategy for persuading leaders in the
developing world to cooperate with the population program, urging that
various agencies of the United Nations, the U.S. Information Agency, the
World Bank, and USAID collaborate with other industrial country donors to
influence leaders of targeted "LDCs'' [less-developed countries]. "We shoul=
give higher priorities in our information programs world-wide for this area=

[population control] and consider expansion of collaborative arrangements
with multilateral institutions in population education programs,'' it said.=

It warned, however, that there was a "danger that some LDC leaders will see=

developed country pressures for family planning as a form of economic or
racial imperialism; this could well create a serious backlash.'' The U.S.,
it added, "can help to minimise charges of an imperialist motivation behind=

its support of population activities by repeatedly asserting that such
support derives from a concern with (a) the right of the individual to
determine freely and responsibly their number and spacing of children ...
and (b) the fundamental social and economic development of poor countries.'=
It also recommended that U.S. foreign service and diplomatic personnel "be
alert to opportunities for expanding our assistance efforts and for
demonstrating to their leaders the consequences of rapid population growth
and the benefits of actions to reduce fertility.''

The secret document also noted that it is "vital'' that officials avoid
giving the impression of "an industrialised country policy to keep their
strength down'' because this could "create a serious backlash adverse to th=
cause of population stability.''

The study also suggested that, where diplomatic initiatives fail to persuad=
leaders their populations should be reduced, "mandatory programs may be
needed and ... we should be considering these possibilities now.'' Specific=

forms of coercion proposed in the study were limited to food rationing and
"taking account of family planning performance'' in foreign assistance

The document further advised that in countries where leaders had raised
strong objections to population control plans -- specifically including
Brazil, Nigeria, and Ethiopia -- population funds "would have to come from
other donors and/or from private and international organisations,'' althoug=
these groups would receive contributions from USAID. In other words, at
least in those countries, the U.S. planned to conceal its funding of such
"private'' population activities.

Nations in Asia and Latin America took most of the pressure in the early
1970s, largely because African leaders were strongly opposed to population
control. But by the early 1980s, the World Bank had revised its guidelines
for funding consumable supplies, and began promoting population reduction
projects as an integral part of development loans in Africa and as a
condition for credit.

Today, most African nations have adopted formal policies that state
birthrates are "too high.'' While such official statements do not
necessarily translate into actions, they nonetheless open the door to
further diplomatic maneuvers and pressure tactics by foreign governments an=
international lending agencies. Eventually, such pressure is intended to
bring about the kind of coercive "family planning'' programs in Africa were=

enacted in India (and which are credited, at least in part, with the 1984
assassination of Indira Gandhi) and those now under investigation in Brazil=

Still, there are several African nations that have not yet even produced
these formal policy statements: Mozambique, Somalia, Angola, Tchad, Congo,
Gabon, Libya, Sudan, Namibia, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Guinee,
Mali, Mauritania and Togo among them. And in others, there are strict rules=

that make such statements unenforceable by Western governments and their
private intermediaries; sterilisation, for example, is a criminal offense i=
Ethiopia, according to a study of national policies done by the UN several
years ago.

The action of Brazil's legislature is an example of an effective response
that comes too late. Already about 25 million Brazilian women have
permanently, and, in many cases unwillingly, been deprived of the capacity
to bear children.

Said Heraclio Salles, one of Brazil's most respected journalists and colum-=

nists: "They have given and are giving millions of women procedures that do=

not differ in their final objectives from those employed by the nazis under=

the Hitler regime to affect the removal of the Jewish population.''



A U.S. $67 million program, funded by USAID and implemented by the
Pathfinder Fund, includes (among scores of others) a "PAMPA'' project to
implement "psycho-social assistance'' with emphasis on "family planning'' i=
Sao Paulo, Brazil; a joint Pathfinder- BEMFAM program to survey adult
attitudes on birth control and to sponsor a Latin American population
conference; and a program to "continue participation in the shaping of the
national discussion on population issues'' with an emphasis on the impact o=
such discussions on Brazil's new Constitution. In Nigeria, Pathfinder has a=
even larger number of current activities, including the training of medical=

personnel to perform birth control procedures in just about every state, as=

well as projects to "improve knowledge, attitude and practice of family
planning'' among both rural and urban women. It funneled approximately $2
million from USAID into a national family planning campaign in Zimbabwe
between 1987 and 1990, and has contributed large amounts of money to simila=
projects in Kenya and Tanzania, with smaller activities in several other
African nations. The Association for Voluntary Surgical Contraception
(formerly Assn. for Voluntary Sterilisation) conducts activities primarily
to promote methods that cause permanent infertility. It has U.S. $80 millio=
in AID contracts, with numerous activities both in Brazil and Nigeria; it
has made several recent payments to universities, hospitals and family
planning associations in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe,
Rwanda, Malawi, Burundi, Zaire, Mali, Senegal, and Sierra Leone. The PIACT
program funds publications and media projects, as well as contraceptive
distribution networks in Brazil. It conducts similar activities in about a
dozen African states.

Time has come to resist the population control activities

Welcome to this international tribunal on reproductive rights. We are all
here today to start the conference concerning population control programs
indifferent countries of the world, say in Asia, Africa, Latin-America and
countries in Europe. We will share our experiences of these programs
specific to our own countries. No doubt, we speak different languages and
come from different cultural and historical back-rounds, but I believe and
perhaps you will also agree, that the basic ideology of population control
is the same for all of us. Because, first of all it did not originate in ou=
specific countries, it came from abroad. The ideology, the money and the
contraceptives all are there from abroad which we received along with the
'aid for development'. Therefore, the problems related to each of us and th=
counter arguments to the ideology of population control are going to be the=

same for all of us. We identify with each other and feel the necessity of
having a conference of this sort to formulate our strategy for future
action. The greatness of the tribunal is that it has brought women from all=

over the world to discuss about the most serious political issue of
population control and is addressing the crucial questions of drug dumping
by multinational companies. Sterilisation abuse, contraceptive abuses and
the ideology and practices of population control affects women in the third=

world countries as well as in the developed countries. It has become clear
that it is women who have to take the lead in the protest against this and
also to take part in the democratic revolution taking shape in most of thes=
countries. Women must participate and liberate themselves as person! It is
very encouraging to see today that so many women have come from different
parts of the world which means that the movement is taking the internationa=
character. We must pursue this trend to take it to its logical conclusions.=

Now, if you permit, I will take some time to give an overview of the
political theme of the population control with specific reference to
Bangladesh, because Bangladesh has now become one of the biggest population=

control program in the country leading towards 'depopulation' and is moving=

in line with the chances in the international population policies. I am
sure, most of you who are from the Third World countries will find
amazingly, how that is similar to the population control programs in your
own countries. Nothing new will perhaps be known from the history of
population control in Bangladesh: we have known most of it from the
experiences of Puerto Rico, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, etc. But certainl=
this attempt will help us to clarify our position on depopulation and the
composition of the foreign interventionist policies on women in all the
countries of the world. We do not want that control any more.

All types of societies practice some sort of birth control, Bangladesh is n=
exception. Neither are the societies in Africa, Latin America or any countr=
in Asia. People practiced birth control like coitus interruptus, abstinence=
moral restraint, or indigenous method of abortion for generations. These
birth control practices served the particular need specific to a certain
phase of social development of the individual and their families and
consequently the need of the society in general. The social norm and
reproductive behaviour correspond to these needs. This fact, although known=

to ethnographers for long, is being mentioned here for uneducated intellect=

of the west exposed heavily to the propaganda of population controllers and=

for population explosion theorists. Due to this unhealthy exposure an image=

has been successfully constituted in the west that "overpopulated "
societies are populous because they breed like animal. A vegetative
non-human existence has been continually projected. The poverty and under
development in the third world societies are explained by their inert
thing-like reproductive behaviour: they are poor, because they breed too
many. Horrifyingly, the west has noticed that these animals are breeding
unknowingly to the extent of exploding the global availability of

The reasons that population control is being practised in all third world
countries are mostly that of the fear of taking over the majority of poor
over the rich minority both at national and international level, the fear o=
taking over the black majority over the white minority and the fear of
taking over the working- class over the bourgeoisie class. The resource
distribution in the world is uneven and now the developed nations seem to b=
worried about the fact that they do not have enough people to enjoy their
resources. They are found to be selectively encouraging an increase in thei=
own countries, and among the whites in countries like Africa. This shows
that the issue of populations control is selective and is because the
developed nations do not want to redistribute the resources through
improving the international economic relations between the countries and
through changes in the social and economic structure within the countries,
they resort to limit the number of the future revolutionaries.

In the forthcoming World Population Conference to be held in Mexico(1984),
the World Bank is going to alarm the world (as they always did before, and
already World Development Report has done it) with the message that high
rates of population growth are holding back economic and social development=

in many of the poorer countries. The World Bank therefore is going to put
its authority as the most powerful international development agency behind
the case for bringing population policy into the centre of debate on
development planning. The World Bank President A. W. Clausen says in the
foreword to the report that "failure to act now to slow population growth i=
likely to mean lower quality of life for millions of people. In the poorest=

countries, poverty contributes to high mortality and even higher fertility.=
Of course, no specific measures are being taken to eradicate the poverty
except by cutting down the number of poor people through forced reduced
births. The argument in favour of family planning on the part of the donors=

is that, "it is remarkably cheap and highly cost-effective."

As we know the United States government and the private foundations like
Rockefeller and Ford Foundations are working actively for population contro=
abroad. For years, they have worked through the private organisations and
the governments in many developing countries to control the population
growth rate. In Bangladesh, for example, USAID is one of the largest donors=

in the population control program, next to the World Bank, and suggests
explicitly that to achieve the desired decline in the population growth rat=
the government should handle the problem by

"suspending the normal rules, by going outside the usual government
procedures and resorting to any and all socially acceptable measures which
seem likely to work". Interestingly enough, while USAID has been pursuing t=
adopt a policy equivalent to crisis management, the paper prepared for the
Mexico Conference by the US government says that, "the population was a
challenge, it need not have been a crisis." The paper surprises everybody
when it says that "more people do not mean less growth, that is absurd on
its face". Indeed, the paper further says, "both in American experience and=

in the economic history of the most advanced nations, populations growth ha=
been an essential element in the economic progress."

However, we need not to be convinced with the argument put forward by the
United States, we have our own explanations and analysis. But what is
interesting here is that United States does believe that population is not
the problem. The US government, by putting argument against population
control, is in fact responding to the anti-abortionist lobby in the USA,
because President Reagan has to yield to these pressures in the election
year. Also the USA is not going to support coercive sterilisation programs
on paper, of course). We know that according to the US Foreign Assistance
Act of 1961, no US money can be paid for inducing sterilisation operation,
too. But according to our experiences in Bangladesh , we know that the
incentive money for sterilisation is paid by the USAID in the name of the
compensation charges to the clients. In a country like Bangladesh where mor=
than 80 percent of the people are living below poverty line and many people=

are without work during most of the time of the year, (he money paid for
undergoing sterilisation operation is certainly not a "compensation" rather=

it is an inducement to take sterilisation in return for money. Now,
incentive money is also being offered to the clients of Copper-T and the
government is also planning to offer incentives to the acceptors of

The history of population control program in Bangladesh starting- from1952
is an example of the external intervention into the reproductive behaviour
of a society. The country had just liberated itself from the long history o=
British colonisation, and during this time period new political and economi=
interventions from the United States were showing up in many of the Latin
American countries as well. The first intervention in Bangladesh was made
through the formation of private organisation called Bangladesh Family
Planning Association. The organisation received most of its funds from
abroad, and a nominal support was received from the government (of
Pakistan). Internationally, interventionists had not yet finished setting u=
their operational structure. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America
had just organised into an international operation in 1948, to become
International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). To add scientific
legitimacy to population control pro-rams, the Population Council was
established. The initial strategy of operation was that the private
organisations were to operate informally. Their primary task would be to
keep an eye on certain elites in foreign governments and eventually to
establish formal programme. The concern for the growing pressure of
population on the resources of the planet was expressed in a conference on
World Population in Rome in the year 1954, held under the auspices of the
United Nations. From 1965, the official government program of population
control started in the country by recruiting large number female family
planning workers to motivate couples (women in particular) and to distribut=
contraceptives. After the liberation of Bangladesh from Pakistan, the
country went through massive population control program and much more with
experimental programs and dumping Planning programs. During the Bucharest
Conference on Population in 1974, consensus grew about the necessity of
having development programs along with the family planning programs,
including health services to the people. The multisectoral development
programs were developed with the funds from the World Bank and the UNFPA an=
was part of the overall development strategy of the World Bank in the Third=

World countries. After 1980, the program has taken its drastic shape with
the major emphasis on sterilisation, and the clinical methods as temporary
methods of contraception.

Integrating women into development activities became important concern of
the policy makers with the primary assumptions that if women are
economically liberated, they will have decision making power about the
family size. Let me assure you, that the necessity of abolition of
patriarchal relation was not posited in these assumptions. Women, however,
received much attention from then on, not because they recognise women as
person, but because it was easy to put the burden of population control on
women and dump all the harmful contraceptives into their bodies. The
examples of the use of Depo-Provera pills. IUDs prove that the concern for
women's health was never an issue; rather women fell into the trap of not
wanting to bear the burden of pregnancy, they had the option of only
accepting contraceptives. The fact that the maternal mortality is very high=

in many of the poor countries like Bangladesh the justification for pushing=

harmful contraceptives was made valid. The health hazards caused by
contraceptives were overlooked, but Maternal and Child Health Care services=

are provided to create a favourable condition for the acceptance of
contraceptives by women.

In societies where western family planning is not accepted, it is again
women who face the burden of social resistances and the pressures. For
example: in Bangladesh, many women are refused for burial after death
because they were sterilised. Moreover, due to contraceptive side-effects o=
excessive bleeding and weakness, women who are earning- their livelihood
through working, outside their houses, are gradually becoming out of work,
which means starvation to most of them. Not only that, in a family women ar=
the crucial labour force for doing household works and the post harvest
works in the rural families. Under the conditions, where women maintain
their credibility by giving birth to male children and doing necessary
works, the acceptance of contraceptive methods aggravates their vulnerable
situation and even they are thrown out of their husband's houses.

Another most important aspect of the population control program in countrie=
of the world is that it is simply a process of marketing of contraceptives
produced by the multinational drug manufacturers, like Ortho, Syntex,
Searle, Upjohn etc., who are interested in having markets for their product=
both in their own country and abroad. Therefore, women in the developed
countries are also victimised as their sisters in the poor countries. But
since the drug administration in the developed countries are strict, the
poor countries become the dumping ground for the banned and harmful drugs.
The cases of Dalkon Shield IUD of A.H. Robins, Depo-Provera of Upjohn and
the Pills of Syntex are well known to everybody. Not only that, the poorer
countries also provide the laboratory for the test of new drugs with the
guinea pigs, called women. Initially pills were tested on women in Latin
American countries, and now Norplant (a subdermal implant) is being tested
and even used in Finland, Thailand, Dominican Republics, Brazil etc. Under
the current US law, new drugs and other important pharmaceuticals cannot be=

exported for sale abroad until they received approval for marketing in the
US by Federal Drug Administration(FDA) or US Department of Agriculture. Thi=
ban on exports has had a significant adverse impact upon the US economy and=

on the international competitive position of the American firms. Therefore,=

the drug industry is seeking federal legislation which would allow to expor=
and manufacture of drugs which are not approved for use in the United
States. This is called the Export Bill, which if it is passed, is going to
legitimize the criminal marketing behaviour of the drug industry. This
situation is very alarming for the developing countries and therefore
resistance must be developed within our own countries to have a strong
Import-Bill, which will not allow any banned drugs.

It therefore becomes evident that the time has come to resist the populatio=
control activities and resist the suppressions in the developing countries.=

And for that, women must take the lead in the movement against external

With this, I open the tribunal sessions for the week and hope to have a
lively discussion on the crucial issues of population policies.

Wish you all good luck for the week.

Don't Fund UNFPA Population Control

by Stephen Moore

Stephen Moore is director of fiscal policy studies at the Cato Institute.

Within the next week or so Congress will vote on whether to restore $60
million of U.S. taxpayer funding over the next two years for the United
Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). For at least 30 years the UNFPA has been a=

complicit partner in some of the most unspeakably brutal population control=

programs around the globe -- including China's genocidal one-couple,
one-child policy. Almost universally, women and children -- at least
hundreds of thousands of them -- have been the victims of this fanatical
crusade. The UNFPA should not be re-funded. It should be universally
condemned for the evil acts in which it has participated.

These days almost no sane person gives any credence to the population bomb
hysteria that was all the rage in the 1960s and 1970s. Every prediction of
massive starvations, eco-catastrophes of biblical proportions and $100 a
barrel oil has been discredited by the global economic and environmental
progress of the past quarter century. Intellectually, the Malthusian limits=

to growth menace is stone dead.

But within the Clinton-Gore State Department, Malthusianism flourishes. The=

Clinton administration still allocates almost $300 million a year to
international population control -- or what is euphemistically described
these days as "family planning." In countries ranging from India to Mexico
to Nigeria to Brazil, the basic human right of couples to control their own=

fertility and determine their own family size has been trampled upon by the=

state, thanks in larger part to flows of dollars and deluges of false
limits-to-growth propaganda supplied by the American government.

The UNFPA, however, has had a particularly demon-like presence in developin=
nations. Back in the Reagan years, Congress sensibly pulled out of the UNFP=
because of its complicity in some of the most inhumane forms of population
containment. Today the UNFPA ludicrously maintains the fiction that the
agency has fought coercive policies. How does one explain then, that UNFPA
once gave an award to the Chinese government for the effectiveness of its
genocidal one child per couple policy?

To this day no one knows precisely how many babies and women have died at
the hands of the population control fanatics in China. What we do know is
that this program will go down in history as one of the greatest abuses of
human rights in the 20th century (see table). The Chinese government's birt=
control policy has already claimed an estimated 5-10 million victims. I say=

already because this is an ongoing genocide. An estimated 80-90 percent of
the victims have been girls. UNFPA still spends millions each year on
population control programs in China.

Incredibly the members of Congress leading the campaign to restore funding
for the UNFPA tend to be "pro-choice" women -- principally Carolyn Maloney
of New York, Cynthia McKinney of Georgia and Connie Morella of Maryland. Bu=
how in the world can an agency that participates in programs that sterilize=

women against their will or that tells women they have an ecological
responsibility to have only one or at most two children possibly be called
pro-choice? Last year the U.S. Senate Committee on Human Rights heard from
witnesses of the China population program, who related how rural women are
forcibly strapped to steel tables in "hospitals" and their babies aborted -=
in some cases in the 7th, 8th and 9th months of pregnancy. Ms. Maloney may
fantasize that the UNFPA promotes "reproductive rights," but there are quit=
literally millions of women in China, India and Mexico who would beg to

These programs were never about giving women reproductive choice. Just the
opposite. Population control programs have been from their inception about
preventing couples from having "too many" babies. Moreover, these "family
planning" services do not promote women's and children's health; they come
at its expense. There are many Third World hospitals that lack bandages,
needles and basic medicines but are filled to the brim with boxes of
condoms -- stamped UNFPA or USAID.

Rep. Maloney believes that population control is necessary to "stop hunger
and preserve our world's resources." In Maloney's dim world view, human
beings are not resources. They are destroyers of resources. Yes, the spirit=

of Malthus is alive and well in the U.S. Congress.

A vote for the UNFPA is a vote for a fanatical anti-people creed that holds=

that we should celebrate the planting of a tree, or a litter of three baby
seals, but that we should regard the birth of a human couple's third baby i=
China or India or even the United States as eco-terrorism. This is a
fundamentally anti-Christian philosophy and it explains why groups like
UNFPA, Zero Population Growth and Planned Parenthood view the Catholic
Church as "the evil empire."

The cause of world hunger and environmental disasters in the world today is=

not too many people. It is too much statism. Almost all of the greatest
ecological damage of the past 50 years was perpetrated by the socialists
behind the iron curtain.

Reagan had it right when he declared 15 years ago that economic growth is
"the best contraceptive." The UNFPA is at best irrelevant to economic
development and probably a deterrent. To help women and children in the
developing world, the United States should be exporting capitalism, not

Are New Vaccines
Laced with Birth-Control Drugs?

During the early 1990s, the World Health Organization (WHO) had been
overseeing massive vaccination campaigns against tetanus in a number of
countries, among them Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Philippines. In October
1994, HLI received a communication from its Mexican affiliate, the Comite'
Pro Vida de Mexico, regarding that country's anti-tetanus campaign.
Suspicious of the campaign protocols, the Comite' obtained several vials of=

the vaccine and had them analyzed by chemists. Some of the vials were found=

to contain human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), a naturally occurring
hormone essential for maintaining a pregnancy.

hCG and Anti-hCG Antibodies

In nature the hCG hormone alerts the woman's body that she is pregnant and
causes the release of other hormones to prepare the uterine lining for the
implantation of the fertilized egg. The rapid rise in hCG levels after
conception makes it an excellent marker for confirmation of pregnancy: when=

a woman takes a pregnancy test she is not tested for the pregnancy itself,
but for the elevated presence of hCG.

However, when introduced into the body coupled with a tetanus toxoid
carrier, antibodies will be formed not only against tetanus but also agains=
hCG. In this case the body fails to recognize hCG as a friend and will
produce anti-hCG antibodies. The antibodies will attack subsequent
pregnancies by killing the hCG which naturally sustains a pregnancy; when a=

woman has sufficient anti-hCG antibodies in her system, she is rendered
incapable of maintaining a pregnancy.(1)

HLI reported the sketchy facts regarding the Mexican tetanus vaccines to it=
World Council members and affiliates in more than 60 countries.(2) Soon
additional reports of vaccines laced with hCG hormones began to drift in
from the Philippines, where more than 3.4 million women were recently
vaccinated. Similar reports came from Nicaragua, which had conducted its ow=
vaccination campaign in 1993.

The Known Facts

Here are the known facts concerning the tetanus vaccination campaigns in
Mexico and the Philippines:

* Only women are vaccinated, and only the women between the ages of 15 and
45. (In Nicaragua the age range was 12-49.) But aren't men at least as
likely as young women to come into contact with tetanus? And what of the
children? Why are they excluded?

* Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) hormone has been found in the
vaccines. It does not belong there -- in the parlance of the O.J. Simpson
murder trial, the vaccine has been "contaminated."

* The vaccination protocols call for multiple injections -- three within
three months and a total of five altogether. But, since tetanus vaccination=
provide protection for ten years or more, why are multiple inoculations
called for?(3)

* WHO has been actively involved for more than 20 years in the development
of an anti-fertility vaccine utilizing hCG tied to tetanus toxoid as a
carrier -- the exact same coupling as has been found in the
Mexican-Philippine-Nicaragua vaccines.(4)

The Anti-Fertility Gang

Allied with the WHO in the development of an anti-fertility vaccine (AFV)
using hCG with tetanus and other carriers have been UNFPA, the UN
Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank, the Population Council, the
Rockefeller Foundation, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, and a
number of universities, including Uppsala, Helsinki, and Ohio State.(5) The=

U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (part of NIH)=

was the supplier of the hCG hormone in some of the AFV experiments.(6)

The WHO begain its "Special Programme" in human reproduction in 1972, and b=
1993 had spent more than $356 million on "reproductive health" research.(7)=

It is this "Programme" which has pioneered the development of the
abortificant vaccine. Over $90 million of this Programme's funds were
contributed by Sweden; Great Britain donated more than $52 million, while
Norway, Denmark and Germany kicked in for $41 million , $27 million, and $1=
million, respectively. The U.S., thanks to the cut-off of such funding
during the Reagan-Bush administrations, has contributed "only" $5.7 million=
including a new payment in 1993 by the Clinton administration of $2.5
million. Other major contibutors to the WHO Programme include UNFPA, $61
million; the World Bank, $15.5 million; the Rockefeller Foundation, $2.5
million; the Ford Foundation, over $1 million; and the IDRC (International
Research and Development Centre of Canada), $716.5 thousand.

WHO and Philippine Health Department Excuses

When the first reports surfaced in the Philippines of tetanus toxoid vaccin=
being laced with hCG hormones, the WHO and the Philippine Department of
Health (DOH) immediately denied that the vaccine contained hCG. Confronted
with the results of laboratory tests which detected its presence in three o=
the four vials of tetanus toxoid examined, the WHO and DOH scoffed at the
evidence coming from "right-to-life and Catholic" sources. Four new vials o=
the tetanus vaccine were submitted by DOH to St. Luke's (Lutheran) Medical
Center in Manila -- and all four vials tested positive for hCG!

From outright denial the stories now shifted to the allegedly
"insignificant" quantity of the hCG present; the volume of hCG present is
insufficient to produce anti-hCG antibodies.

But new tests designed to detect the presence of hCG antibodies in the bloo=
sera of women vaccinated with the tetauns toxoid vaccine were undertaken by=

Philippine pro-life and Catholic groups. Of thirty women tested subsequent
to receiving tetanus toxoid vaccine, twenty-six tested positive for high
levels of anti-hCG! If there were no hCG in the vaccine, or if it were
present in only "insignificant" quantities, why were the vaccinated women
found to be harboring anti-hCG antibodies? The WHO and the DOH had no

New arguments surfaced: hCG's apparent presence in the vaccine was due to
"false positives" resulting from the particular substances mixed in the
vaccine or in the chemicals testing for hCG. And even if hCG was really
there, its presence derived from the manufacturing process.

But the finding of hCG antibodies in the blood sera of vaccinated women
obviated the need to get bogged down in such debates. It was no longer
necessary to argue about what may or may not have been the cause of the hCG=

presence, when one now had the effect of the hCG. There is no known way for=

the vaccinated women to have hCG antibodies in their blood unless hCG had
been artificially introduced into their bodies!

Why A Tetanus Toxoid "Carrier"?

Because the human body does not attack its own naturally occurring hormone
hCG, the body has to be fooled into treating hCG as an invading enemy in
order to develop a successful anti-fertility vaccine utilizing hCG
antibodies. A paper delivered at the 4th International Congress of
Reproductive Immunology (Kiel, West Germany, 26-29 July 1989) spelled it
out: "Linkage to a carrier was done to overcome the immunological tolerance=

to hCG."(8)

Vaccine Untested by Drug Bureau

After the vaccine controversy had reached a fever pitch, a new bombshell
exploded; none of the three different brands of tetanus vaccine being used
had ever been licensed for sale and distribution or registered with the
Philippine Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD), as required by law. The head of=

the BFAD lamely explained that the companies distributing these brands "did=

not apply for registration."(9) The companies in question are Connaught
Laboratories Ltd. and Intervex, both from Canada, and CSL Laboratories from=


It seemed that the BFAD might belatedly require re-testing, but the idea wa=
quickly rejected when the Secretary of Health declared that, since the
vaccines had been certified by the WHO -- there they are again! -- there wa=
assurance enough that the "vaccines come from reputable manufacturers."(10)=

Just how "reputable" one of the manufacturers might be is open to some
question. In the mid-`80s Connaught Laboratories was found to be knowingly
distributing vials of AIDS-contaminated blood products.(11)


At this juncture, evidence is beginning to appear from Africa.(12) HLI has
called for a Congressional investigation of the situation, inasmuch as
nearly every agency involved in the development of an anti-fertility vaccin=
is funded, at least in part, with U.S. monies.
