Join the world against the embargo


The US economic blockade of Cuba has been in place for a staggering 56 years. For the last 25 years this blockade has been condemned in an annual vote in the UN General Assembly. In recent years this vote has been almost unanimous in favor of Cuba. During the last two years of his administration President Obama took some limited steps to ease the blockade. President Trump partially reversed these steps.

Come and hear directly from the Cuban representatives:
How Cuba has suffered under the blockade.
What it has achieved despite the blockade..
How it is recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Irma.
What we have to do in the US to finally end the blockade.

Date: Saturday October 21, 2017, at 7pm.
Location: New Hope Baptist Church, 124 21st Avenue, Seattle 98122.
Plus: Optional spaghetti meal beforehand at 6pm ($5 donation).

Celebrate Cubana Noche


An event celebrating Cuban culture, history, and its inspiring revolution from the Party for Socialism and Liberation-Seattle

Saturday, July 29 from 6 PM to 10 PM
918 S Horton St, Seattle, WA 98134

On July 26, 1953, Cuban revolutionaries began a movement which toppled the U.S. backed military dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Today, Cuba's revolutionary social progress is an inspiration to poor and oppressed people everywhere who seek to build a better, more just world for all!

In 1959, young Cuban revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara defeated the hated, U.S.-backed military dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. It was a triumph for the Cuban people and for poor and oppressed people across the world. Now, Cuba's social progress stands as an inspiration to those who seek to build a better, more just world. (July 26 marks the attack on the Moncada Barracks, commemorated as the start of the Cuban Revolution.)

Join us in celebrating Cuban culture, history, and its inspiring revolution with homemade Cuban food, music, and poetry from local artists and activists.

$5-10 dollar donation comes with a plate of food and a soft drink ~ no one is turned away for lack of funds.
