Cuban 5 Return opening program

 

The Seattle/Cuba Friendship Committee and IFCO/Pastors for Peace are proud to announce the 27th Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba.

Friendshipment Caravan 27

 

From IFCO/Pastors for Peace:
The 27th Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba is coming to a city near you. We will travel through the US from July 5-15.

The Caravan will educate about the important role US citizens can play in lifting the US blockade of Cuba and the travel ban. We will visit congressional offices and invite caravan event organizers and supporters to join us in these meetings.

This is a critical year in US-Cuba relations. Our attention will focus on advocating for Cuba here in the US; not collecting humanitarian aid. Our Cuban partners have told us that what they need most at this moment are our voices in solidarity.

For information about going on the 2016 IFCO/Pastors For Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba (July 5-15), contact IFCO:

February 14, 2016
New possibilities for US-Cuba relations. Cuban diplomat to visit the Pacific Northwest.
Miguel Fraga, 1st secretary of Cuba’s new embassy in Washington DC, will visit Seattle on March 3rd-6th.
His visit is a glimpse of potential new US-Cuba relations following the decision by President Obama to renew diplomatic ties with Cuba after 55 years of estrangement, and to move away from a policy of open hostility towards Cuba’s ongoing revolution, to one of engagement.
Despite these positive steps, most of the policies and laws that make up the United States economic blockade against Cuba still remain in place, awaiting further executive actions by President Obama, and ultimately Congressional repeal of a number of laws.
Miguel Fraga will address a range of audiences at both college and community venues, about what remains to be done to achieve the goal of normal relations between the United States and Cuba, based on mutual respect and understanding.
In addition, he will meet with local elected officials, Washington-based companies interested in doing business with Cuba, and college administrators to explore links between US and Cuban educational institutions.
Miguel Fraga will speak at the following free and public events (donations accepted):
The Seattle opening of "The Cuban 5 Return: An Entire Country Celebrates". This award-winning photo exhibit documents the homecoming of five cuban anti-terrorists, unjustly held 16 years in US prisons. Friday March 4th, 6:30-9:30pm at El Centro de la Raza, 3rd floor, 2524 16th Avenue S in Seattle.
"Imagine! New Paths for US-Cuba Relations."
This day conference will discuss how we in Washington State can forge new links with Cuba. Saturday March 5th, 10:00-4:00 at Seattle University, School of Law, Sullivan Hall, Room C-6, 12th Ave and Columbia St in Seattle.
"On Organic Agriculture in Cuba (the importance of sustainable food to poor people)". Also discussed will be the Church in Cuba, and race in Cuba. Sunday March 6th, 12:00-1:00 (Church service begins 10:45) at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, 124 21st Ave in Seattle.
