Join the National Cuba Conference in NYC!
Relations between the U.S. and Cuba are anything but normal. Mainly, the most fundamental criminal aspects of the U.S. blockade
have been maintained. The U.S. military has also continued its occupation of Guantanamo and U.S.-backed regime-change
In response to continued United States policy against Cuba, activists from the U.S. and Canada have joined together as the
U.S.-Cuba Normalization Committee to organize a “National Conference for
the Full Normalization of U.S.-Cuba Relations.” This important conference is
taking place at Fordham University Law School, from March 26-27, 2017.
Over 140 organizations and individuals from the U.S. and Canada have
endorsed the conference, which will include workshops, plenary sessions, a
large public meeting with prominent Cuba speakers and cultural events. During
the conference, there will also be special emphasis on how people can take
action in their own cities and communities to demand the US government
normalize relations with Cuba.
In Vancouver, Canada, Vancouver Communities in Solidarity with Cuba (VCSC)
and Friends of Cuba Against the US Blockade – Vancouver (FCAB-Vancouver)
have both endorsed the conference and joined the US-Cuba Normalization
Committee. We will be hosting two workshops at the conference, “The
Revolutionary Legacy of Fidel Castro”, which is co-hosted with Ike Nahem
of Cuba Solidarity New York, and “Lift the Blockade of Cuba: Building Cuba
Solidarity in Action.”
Especially as close neighbors of the United States, people in Canada have
the responsibility to do whatever we can to fight for normalized relations
between the US and Cuba. VCSC and FCAB-Vancouver encourage people
and organizations in Vancouver, BC and across Canada to get involved in this
important and exciting initiative.
