MONTHLY PICKET ACTIONS TO END THE U.S. BLOCKADE ON CUBA!


During the latest session of the UN Commission on Population and Development, the Cuban representative, Juan Carlos Alfonso Fraga, highlighted Cuba’s achievements in healthcare and education despite the US blockade on Cuba, which has been in place for more than half a century.

As he stated, “Only between April 2015 and March 2016, the economic damages caused by the blockade against Cuba amounted to no less than 4.680 billion dollars. Wouldn’t there be an improvement in the quality of our services, life and our future if, in this short term, those billions of dollars would have been devoted to the Cuban economy?”

As friends of Cuba around the world, we have an important role to join the Cuban people in demanding an end to the US illegal blockade on their country. Join us in Vancouver in front of the US Consulate on April 17 as we demand:


  • END THE BLOCKADE ON CUBA NOW!
     
  • RETURN GUANTANAMO TO CUBA NOW!
     
  • US GOVERNMENT STOP THE CAMPAIGN OF ‘REGIME CHANGE’ IN CUBA AND IMMEDIATELY STOP INTERFERING IN CUBA’S SOVEREIGNTY AND SELF-DETERMINATION!

FIDEL & THE CUBAN REVOLUTION: HOW FAR WE HAVE COME Print E-mail






SATURDAY JANUARY 21

JOE’S CAFE - 7pm

(Large North Hall)

1150 Commercial Dr. @ William St.

Vancouver, Canada


Speakers:


  • TAMARA HANSENAuthor of “Five Decades of the Cuban Revolution: The Challenges of an Unwavering Leadership” & Coordinator of Vancouver Communities in Solidarity with Cuba (VCSC)
     
  • ALI YEREVANIPolitical Editor of the Fire This Time Newspaper


On November 25, 2016 Raúl Castro, the President of Cuba, appeared on Cuban television and announced the passing of Comandante Fidel Castro at the age of 90. The news spread quickly around the world, as did the messages of condolences, in recognition of the incredible impact of his extraordinary life.


In the 90 years of his extraordinary life, Comandante Fidel outlasted 10 U.S. presidents (11 counting President Barack Obama). He also survived over 600 assassination attempts orchestrated by the U.S. government and the CIA. Through his unwavering leadership Comandante Fidel Castro steered the Cuban Revolution through 57 years of great gains and great challenges, and through his undying revolutionary internationalism Fidel continued to support the struggles of all oppressed peoples for a just and better world.


Join Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice this Saturday January 21 for this important forum to discuss many topics, including:


  • Who was Comandante Fidel Castro and how will he be remembered?
     
  • What does Comandante Fidel's passing mean for the future of the Cuban Revolution?
     
  • What could be the future of U.S.-Cuba relations with incoming U.S. President Donald Trump?
     
  • How do these changes and others impact the development of Cuba's socialist project?
