Pastors for Peace Cuba Caravan in Syracuse July 6
by Jessica Maxwell
On July 6th the Pastors
for Peace Caravan to Cuba will stop in Syracuse to pick up
material aid for Cuba. The caravan is part of a project that involves more than
120 US cities.
As the Bush administration increases its hostility toward Cuba, it is important
that we show our support for more humane policies and an end to the blockade
of Cuba. We have the right to travel there and see the complex realities of
their society, and not just hear the cries of the right-wing Cubans in Miami
who are closely tied to the Bush family.
On Sunday June 26th at 6:30 pm we will
have a "Night in Havana." Ron Shuffler and others will cook up some
great Cuban food. We will have live music and a discussion among those who have
been to Cuba recently. The event will be held at May Memorial Unitarian Universalist
Society (3800 E Genesee St., Syracuse); $5-50, sliding scale fee.
For more information on the caravan go to the Pastors for Peace website [www.ifconews.org]. To be involved locally call Doug Igelsrud at 471-5749.
