Baltimore-Washington Area Peace Council

Cuba visit

On Friday, May 7, in Washington, DC, leaders of the U.S. trade union solidarity delegation "will speak about our experiences in Cuba when we visited Havana this past January. We will discuss our work with the Central de Trabajadores de Cuba (CTC), the country's national labor federation, during our visit to the sovereign, independent, and revolutionary nation of Cuba. We will also explain why the U.S. must end the ban on U.S. travel to Cuba and, more generally, must end the U.S. blockade against Cuba. We will be joined by a diplomatic representative of the Republic of Cuba at the Cuban Interests Section in Washington, DC, who will provide an update on U.S.-Cuba bilateral relations."

The Baltimore-Washington Area Peace Council, the chapter of the U.S. Peace Council (in turn a member of the World Peace Council) "right here in the national capital region of the U.S. will sponsor the event. Participants in this, our inaugural U.S. Peace Council Forum, include":

The "event will begin at 6:30 pm on Friday, May 7 at the Postal Workers Union hall at 6139 Chillum Place NE in Washington, DC 20011. The location, being in DC and therefore within the national capital Beltway, complies with the onerous travel restrictions imposed by the U.S. on diplomats from Cuba."[1]
