“Sicko” Preview at City Hall

Reggie Cervantes and William Maher were among the handful of Sept. 11 first responders who gathered on the City Hall steps today as a gesture to remind other people suffering from 9/11-related injuries to apply for disability benefits.

Unlike the others, Cervantes and Maher also participated in Michael Moore’s upcoming documentary, “Sicko,” which is about health care in America and Cuba. The movie has been criticized preemptively for violating the US ban on traveling to the communist country, and for serving as propaganda for the Castro government.

In this clip, Cervantes tells me — without professional direction — that she figures Cuba provided her with the same quality treatment she might have gotten here, but for free.
