TRAVEL TO CUBA!
w/ Witness for Peace Southwest
Celebrate May Day in Cuba: Labor and Community Organizing from the Ground Up!
APRIL 24-MAY 4, 2016
This delegation will engage participants in the history of Cuba’s progressive politics favoring the poor. Since the historic concurrent announcements by Presidents Obama and Castro on December 17, 2014 that both countries would undertake a new course on the path towards normalized relations in no other time has there been more interest in Cuba, its history, cultural and political landscape. With Witness for Peace Southwest celebrate alongside the Cuban people on International Worker’s Day in Havana. The Cuban people are at the forefront of people’s movements in the Americas and we invite you to come to Cuba and see this reality first-hand.
While on delegation, you will meet with a variety of organizations that have worked over the last several decades to build a new society which favors the poor, encourages participation and offers opportunities for all Cuban citizens. Learn more about Cuba’s commitment to education, healthcare and social justice. This is a historic time to bear witness to the dramatic changes taking place in our hemisphere. Please join Witness for Peace Southwest for what promises to be a remarkable time to celebrate Cuba’s revolutionary spirit, past and present!
This delegation is sponsored by the human rights organization Witness for Peace Southwest and Altruvistas, a socially responsible and philanthropic travel company.
