Amig@s – Please consider this warm invitation from Cuba to join with participants from over 30 countries in the 12th Int’l Solidarity Brigade to Cuba April 24th to May 8th (optional departure May 3rd). This is the first time there’ll be significant U.S participation in this Int’l Brigade – and there is strong participation from Black Lives Matter, both things of course important advances.
