So the OU supports illegal sanctions?

Visible to anyone in the world

The USA's sanctions against Cuba have been declared illegal by the UN many times over the 50+ years the blockade has been in place. Israel is the only country that supports the USA in this illegal economic stranglehold placed on the Cuban people by its huge nearby neighbour.

It includes food, credit, travel and medicine.

I did not realise it included education.

Nor did I realise the Open University also supports this illegal blockade.

If I had known this, I would never had started studying here.

Now I have a personal ethical dilemma.  Do I continue to fund the OU's support for this illegal blockade by doing my final module with them, or go backwards and complete my degree with an ethical university?
