BELOW: IMPORTANT LOGISTICAL INFORMATION FOR THE SEPT 12 MEETING ON CUBAN FIVE AT THE U.N. CHURCH PLAZA
Thursday, September 12, 2002 @ 6:30 pm. 777 United Nations Plaza
The Bush administration is stepping up its attacks on Cuba, pledging to tighten the U.S. blockade, cracking down on U.S. travelers to Cuba, and expanding the "Axis of Evil" to include Cuba. The U.S. government has jailed 5 Cuban patriots in federal prisons across the country. Their only crime was to defend Cuba from right-wing terrorist attacks. Cuba and many U.S. activists are saying NO to the Bush team's offensive and are countering the attacks.
Speakers include: Rev. Lucius Walker, IFCO/Pastors for Peace Ray LeForest, Local 1707, Bob Guild, Venceremos Brigade, Teresa Gutierrez, IAC, Luis Miranda, Casa de las Americas, Leonore Foerstel, Women's Strike for Peace and more!
