The Dec. 17th decision to free the Cuban 5 and to normalize relations between the United States and Cuba was historic, yet misunderstood by many.  The U.S. blockade on Cuba hasn’t ended and the Travel Ban hasn’t been lifted either.
Join The Venceremos Brigade as we discuss the next phase of Cuba solidarity work; learn why we go to Cuba; watch Oliver Stone’s critically acclaimed documentary, “Looking for Fidel”; and find out how you can join this summer’s 46th annual contingent to Cuba!

Proceeds from this event will go to the VB Education Fund, which provides scholarships for aspiring Brigadistas!

Looking for Fidel,
USA 2011, 63 minutes
Academy-Award winner, Oliver Stone delivers a candid, in-depth conversation with one of the most controversial world leaders, Fidel Castro. Stone challenges Castro to explain actions following the execution of three political
dissidents who attempted to hijack a ferry to the United States in April 2003. Is Castro a moral leader defending his small island against a superpower or is he an iron fisted tyrant who tolerates no criticism?
