Dec. 23 Chicago: Celebrate Cuba’s Victory

Dec 21, 2014 by

Come Celebrate the Return of all the Cuban 5 Political Prisoners to Cuba, and Moves  to Ending the US Travel Ban and US Blockade against Cuba – and Oppose US Sanctions on Venezuela: 10 Years of ALBA’s Achievements

   Tuesday December 23, 5-7 pm
   at Consulate of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela
   20 N. Wacker Dr., Suite 1925
        Wine, beer and some food.
     The freeing of the Cuban 5 was a great victory for Cuba and its supporters, for all of us who have defended Cuba over the last half century, and for those who fight to free all U.S. political prisoners. It was a great victory for Cuba and for all of Latin America, and we celebrate this defeat for the almost 55 year cruel policy of the US government against Cuban and Latin American self-determination.
     We choose the Venezuelan Consulate not just for their long support for our work for the Cuban 5, but to stand with Venezuela, now suffering from US sanctions. For the US, sanctions represent a step towards regime change and war.
     Let’s not let the US government take its boot off the neck of Cuba, just to put it on Venezuela’s. Let us honor this victory by putting this boot where it belongs.

     Gisela Lopez, in thanks and congratulations to all those who fought for justice for her country.
