Agroecology and Cooperation:
How Cuba Transformed a Plantation Economy into a Socialist One?
About the Delegation
From the U.S. South to Cuba we will travel to learn how this Caribbean island nation has built a new society based on a life with dignity. Cuba has fought against the imposition of a brutal Spanish colonial plantation economy and a racial capitalist U.S. neo-colony. Following the triumph of the Revolution, the people have spent over six decades building a socialist society. Today, in Cuba healthcare, education, food, housing, culture, unions, sports, and protagonism are all rights shared by the majority. Meet with the people who continue this transformational process, despite the U.S. Blockade and military occupation of Guantanamo Bay. Learn about historic Black and Indigenous resistance, agroecology, and cooperative organizing.
