During the coronavirus crisis the US, with the highest death count in 
the world, has cruelly intensified sanctions and military threats, and 
has tried to weaponize COVID-19 to bring down governments that will not 
follow the dictates of Washington and Wall Street. The US has imposed 
economic sanctions against 39 countries / 1/3 of world population.  This 
criminal legislation denies access to essential medicine and medical 
equipment as well as access to world markets for food and other necessities.

The UN has urged that sanctions be loosened during this crisis but the 
US has done the opposite. Many US allies have broken with them and sent 
medical aid to some countries. Now is an important time for the people 
in the US to come out strongly against these economic sanctions, which 
are simply war by other means.
