Cuba: One Year Later

January 06, 2016 through January 16, 2016

A year after the historic announcement of “normalization” by Presidents Obama and Castro, travel with us to explore what this means to this island nation. The riches of this island, its 11 million people; more animal and place species than anywhere else in the Caribbean; its vibrant culture, universal literacy and free education; free and effective healthcare; local and sustainable agriculture, have existed within the confines of the US embargo. What changes have happened, what is yet to come, and what effects will these changes have?

Come learn from Cubans at the forefront of social change. Learn what they value, the gains they are committed to keep, and what they want to change.

We plan to meet with, and learn from, people engaged in:

  • The literacy campaign that made Cuba a UN-designated “illiteracy-free zone”
  • Current education, of both youth and communities
  • Local sustainable agriculture
  • The current “drivers” of the economy
  • Responding to global climate change, a particular threat to island nations
  • Creating the art that sustains the Cuban soul & performance events
  • The Martin Luther King Center, a vibrant hub for community education and faith
  • Ecology, of the earth, of communities, of the mind
  • And much, much more!

To Cuba, With Love

Sunday, February 7 to Sunday, February 14, 2016

Due to the huge success of our February 2015 150-person “To Cuba With Love,” CODEPINK decided to organize another trip to coincide with Valentine’s Day to celebrate the normalization of relations and the show our Cuban neighbors some love! We hope to bring 100 people, which allows us to have multiple itinerary options so you can customize your own experience.

The group will meet with government officials about US-Cuba relations, look at Cuba’s changing economy moving away from state-run enterprises to cooperatives, talk to doctors from around the world being trained in Cuba, visit cooperative farms, take day trips outside Havana, and interact with local people about cultural, economic, environmental and health issues. Check out testimonies,photos and press coverage from our last trip. There’s nowhere on Earth better to be on May 1st than Cuba! Don’t miss the opportunity.

The Cuban people are so wonderful–fun, funny, inventive, creative, well-educated, curious and they have a zest for life that rival any. So join us, and mark history with a mojito, the world’s greatest music, and a most-welcomed dose of love for our neighbors.

The price of the trip from Miami is $2,000 for a double room, $2175 for a single room. There are limited single rooms, which we will give out on a first come, first served basis. If you are willing to have a double room but don’t have a roommate, we will pair you with someone.

Please fill out this delegate application and make a non-refundable deposit asap. We cannot hold a place for you without a deposit. Send a check (made out to CODEPINK) to CODEPINK, 1241 Evarts St. NE Washington, DC 20018, (and then inform Cuba@codepink.org so we can mark you as paid), or pay online HERE. **Important** if you pay online, you must pay $520 (an extra $20) because of a 4% online bank fee.

Cuba: Socialism, Cooperatives, and Building a Solidarity Economy
June 19 to July 2, 2016

Visit this vibrant, changing society with the Center for Global Justice.  Learn how it is changing from a state directed system to one open to private and collective actors.  Find out about the impact of an evolving relation to the US on Cuban society. See how ordinary people are adjusting their lives to new possibilities.  Experience a society in motion.

The first week of this trip will give you an overview of Cuban society and the changes underway, with a focus on the new cooperatives developing.  The second week will feature an exchange with leading Cuban thinkers discussing the reinvention of socialism and the opportunities for expanded exchanges between the people of the US and Cuba.  You are invited to present a short paper for this dialog.

In organizing this trip the Center for Global Justice draws on 25 years of experience with educational travel to Cuba, drawing on a wealth of Cubans and their institutions to design a unique program that will open up a new world to you.

It is estimated that this 14 day trip will cost $2,000 plus airfare (currently $450 from Miami), including shared hotel room, breakfasts, translation, guide, and the program of activities.  This estimate is subject to change in light of the fluctuating hotel costs due to increased travel to Cuba from the US.  We expect to have firm costs by late March.  Deadline for applications is April 1, 2016.  Apply early to assure your space on this trip.  Your $200 deposit will be refunded if you have to cancel before May 1.
