ALG urges corporations to stop funding BLM after support for Cuban oppression

July 16, 2021, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging American corporations to stop funding Black Lives Matter after its support of the communist regime in Cuba that is actively oppressing its people:

“Black Live Matters’ continued support for the oppressive Cuban regime, which is disappearing, massacring and jailing hundreds of peaceful protesters who had the audacity to march in the streets for freedom, is unacceptable. Last year, at least 22 corporations gave millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter, under the guise of supporting human rights. Each of these should discontinue all future payments to Black Lives Matter to send a message that they truly support basic human rights. Continuing to fund an organization live Black Lives Matter that not only condones but supports state sponsored violence of Cuba against peaceful protesters and political opponents is antithetical to American values. And if these corporations fail to stop funding Black Lives Matter, it will demonstrate that their donations were nothing more than political payoffs, rather than true concerns for social justice, or worse, a tacit endorsement of the Cuban regime and the oppression it continues wage upon the Cuban people.”
