Again this summer, courageous Americans are defying the travel ban to Cuba, which has been in effect for more than forty years. These TRAVEL BAN CHALLENGERS are united by their desire to see Cuba for themselves and are willing to risk huge fines and harassment at the border to stand up for their right to travel. This travel challenge is organized to defend our Constitutional rights of free association, free travel, and free speech. The main organizers of the travel challenge are the Venceremos Brigade, Pastors for Peace, the US/Cuba Labor Exchange, (NNOC), and the Women's Travel Challenge to Cuba. The Venceremos Brigade, the US/Cuba Labor Exchange, (NNOC), and the Women's Travel Challenge to Cuba will return from Cuba by crossing the border at the PEACE BRIDGE into BUFFALO NY

Supporters will be coming from near and far to gather at FRONT PARK at 8:30am MONDAY, AUGUST 1ST, 2005 Come and join in the Welcoming! The Venceremos Brigade's (venceremos means We shall overcome!) group statement said "…We oppose the Bush Administration's warlike actions towards Cuba and its relentless pursuit of "regime change" in Cuba - a country where people have free health care and education, where they do not suffer homelessness and hunger and where racism is actively combated, and whose largest export to the poor countries of the world is medical assistance. We support the Cuban people's sovereign right to have the social system of their choosing--and we want to learn more about it." Be there to enjoy music and food together, and ask them about Cuba!
