Hope and Change in Cuba Today: a report back with Cheryl LaBash

Hope and change in Cuba today: a report back with Cheryl LaBash

Come hear what Cuba is like first hand from Cheryl LaBash of Detroit and the IFCO/Pastors for Peace Cuba Caravan. She visited Havana for International Workers Day on May 1 and then traveled far across the island to Guantanamo—the Cuban village to see for herself the effects of U.S. militarism.

Find out what the Cuban economy is like? What about life for women? Is there equality? How does socialism compare in Cuba to other countries?

Is the U.S. blockade finished? Is the U.S. bullying Cuba again under President Trump? Can we really travel to Cuba and spend money freely now, or does the U.S. government restrict it?

Promptly at 7pm we will show a short documentary “All Guantanamo Is Ours” about both the Cuban village of Guantanamo as well as the U.S. military base and torture prison. Followed by Cheryl LaBash sharing her experiences and insights, and answering questions. Then we will have discussion.
