When: Monday, April 17, 7 pm (6:30 pm potluck)
Where: Silver Sage Village Commons, 1650 Yellow Pine, Boulder
Rev. Tom Smith will be speaking about the Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba. Potluck at 6:30and presentation at 7 p.m.
Since 1992 IFCO/Pastors for Peace has organized these caravans. With each Friendshipment caravan, and each successive effort they make to resist the US economic blockade of Cuba, the US government has been compelled to back down, to relent, to soften its enforcement of the blockade. The proof that their efforts have worked lies in recent changes announced by the Obama Administration to move toward normalizing relations with Cuba. They welcome this first step toward the reversal of a blockade policy that has caused decades of pain and suffering for the Cuban people. But they know that their work continues.
