      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 programs persist.

      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.
