The Cuba Caravan is Coming to town

In 1959 the Cuban people dared to dream a different future for their country. The US government has been trying to destroy that dream ever since by economic blockade.

How do Cuba’s accomplishments inspire us?

How can the US blockade be ended?

What role do Canadians have in opposing the blockade?

Speakers:

Gail Walker – Executive Director IFCO/Pastors for Peace

Fr. Luis Barrios – Board President IFCO/Pastors for Peace

Ingrid Izquierdo Sterling - Consul at Cuban Consulate in Toronto

Elizabeth Hill – President Canadian-Cuban Friendship Association Toronto

Jim Hodgson – Latin America program coordinator United Church of Canada

The event is a fundraiser for the IFCO/Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba which has been taking US citizens and humanitarian aid to Cuba since 1992 without a US government license.

The church is located on the NW corner of College and Bathurst Street.

There is paid street parking and a parking lot on the SW side.

By TTC get off at Bathurst Subway station and take the 511 street car south on Bathurst to College St.

On 26 July 1953, the Moncada Barracks was attacked by a small group of revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro.  This armed attack is widely accepted as the beginning of the Cuban Revolution.  The date was adopted by Fidel as the name for the revolutionary movement (Movimiento 26 julio or M-26-7)
