During her visit to the United States, Mariela Castro, director of the Cuban National Center for Sex Education, came to The Nation‘s office to speak about her work and LGBT rights in Cuba and around the globe. In this video clip, she questions the “humanitarianism” that serves as a shameless pretext for one country to intervene in the affairs of another. She points out that this phenomenon manifests itself at the United Nations, offering a thought-provoking and compelling call for change.
