30th Friendshipment Caravan June 22 – July 5, 2019

Join us for a life-changing experience in Cuba

Our caravans extend solidarity to the Cuban people and give you an opportunity to learn about Cuba through direct experience. This year we will travel to Havana and the neighboring province of Cienfuegos to explore how the Cuban people are moving forward in healthcare, organic farming, and sustainable tourism, the diversity of religious expression in Cuba, and Cuba’s efforts to tackle legacies of racism, sexism, homophobia and more.

Our trip will include a visit to the Latin American Medical School in Havana, which trains thousands of young people from around the world, including 70 from the US, to be doctors on full scholarships from the Cuban government. In Cienfuegos will visit the Museum at the Bay of Pigs commemorating the defeat of the US backed invasion of Cuba in 1961.

Solidarity and Humanitarian Aid

Since 1992 IFCO/Pastors for Peace has organized Friendshipment Caravans to Cuba – delivering humanitarian aid from the people of US to the people of Cuba and traveling to the island without requesting U.S. government permission. We have engaged in this act of civil disobedience to express our opposition to the restrictions placed on US travelers to Cuba.

Cuba Caravan June 22 – July 5, 2019

The Caravan includes a two-day mandatory orientation in Mexico City on June 22-24 and all participants return to the US on July 5 flying through Mexico City to connect to flights home.

US Caravan Educational Events Jun 12-21, 2019

We encourage everyone to join in the Caravan educational routes and events planned throughout the US from June 12-21 to raise awareness of Cuba and about our work. Please contact us if you would like to attend or host an event in your area.

Cost of program - $1650 (Round trip travel to Mexico City from U.S. not included)

The Hardships Imposed on Venezuela by US-Canadian Sanctions
Steve Ellner, Ph.D.

 

The Venezuelan economy is being crippled by the sanctions the Western powers (US, Canada, European Union) have imposed on it. Sanctions impose heavy burdens on ordinary Venezuelans who are just trying to live their lives. Unilateral sanctions are illegal under international law.

Steve Ellner will discuss the impact of these sanctions and the impact of other factors (such as the drop in the price of oil, the reliance on oil exports, economic sabotage by the right-wing, mismanagement) on the Venezuelan people's lives. Since 1977 Steve Ellner has taught economic history and political science at the Universidad de Oriente in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela and for a ten year period taught in the graduate school of law and political science of the Universidad Central de Venezuela.

Wednesday, November 7 at 6:00 pm

Location: 321 16th Avenue South (Washington State Labor Council) Seattle, WA

Cosponsored by US Women and Cuba Collaboration, Seattle Cuba Friendship Committee and LELO
