What is the “Rumbo a Cuba Initiative”?

The CIJAM camp is where international solidarity guests stay while in volunteering in Cuba. Thousands of people visit CIJAM every year, up to 500 at one time, and it has been a real challenge for the camp to provide the necessary services to its guests, especially because of the cruel US blockade. If something breaks, it is never just as easy as buying a replacement.

Following a very successful fundraising campaign where we were able to provide the camp with a new water pump, we are continuing to help the camp which is so important to Cuba and the international solidarity movement. In discussions with the camp's workers, they have told us that the most urgent needs are now a tractor and a freezer truck.

When Cuba calls, we answer! We have launched a campaign to raise the necessary funds by December 31, 2015. This is an ambitious goal, but we believe with the support we are receiving from so many groups and individuals this will be possible. Please join us!

On July 26th, 1953 a group of Cuban revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro attacked the Moncada Army Barracks again the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Although this attack was defeated militarily, taking the lives of dozens of rebel fighters and imprisoning many others, including Fidel Castro, it is seen as the beginning of the Cuban revolution. It is the July 26th Movement, named after this initial defeat, that led the Cuban revolution to victory under the leadership of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and their compañeros.
 
Please join us in the beautiful Trout Lake Park to commemorate the July 26th movement with an evening of dynamic speakers, poets, musicians and good food!
