The 45th contingent of the Venceremos Brigade is getting ready to travel to Cuba from July 20th to August 2nd. The group will visit places of interests and will get a first had look at the current economic transformations underway across the island. The Venceremos Brigade will receive lectures on the Cuban reality and will be able to exchange with the people and also participate in the July 26th commemorations.
In 1969, a coalition of young people formed the Venceremos (We Shall
Overcome) Brigade, as a means of showing solidarity with the Cuban Revolution by working side by side with Cuban workers and challenging U.S. policies towards Cuba, including the economic blockade and our government’s ban on travel to the island. The first Brigades participated in sugar harvests and subsequent Brigades have done agricultural and construction work in many parts of the island.
It is the perfect moment to come to Cuba with the group as a number of growing Americans are in favor of lifting the unjust economic blockade and are calling for normalizing ties between both countries and the release of the remaining 3 members of the Cuban Five.
