Cuba: Confronting COVID and the US Blockade

 A report back direct from two weeks in Cuba

A Zoom presentation for Wisconsin

Tuesday, October 12th 7 pm CT

 

 

 

 

 

"On July 11 after 60 years of US economic war and a pandemic that cut off tourist income, some anti-government demonstrations took place in Cuba. This led to a massive barrage of distortions and lies by the US media, including portrayals of much larger pro-government counter-demonstrations as anti-government protests. There even were calls by people like the mayor of Miami for US military intervention. Join us for a different point of view on Cuba and its relations with the US.

 

For 29 years IFCO/Pastors for Peace has been sending friendshipment caravans to Cuba to show solidarity from people in the US against the 60+ years of US aggression against Cuba, including the US economic blockade. They are going again in November, and will be taking medical aid for Cuba with them."
