Cuba: Investing in Humanity, Towards a World Without Military Bases, Policing, or War
About the Delegation
Across the stolen territories of the USA, there is a resounding call for abolition: for the end to the prison industrial system, policing, and the war and sanctions machine. What lessons can we learn from the Cuban people, now 62 years into building a new world, despite US aggression? What lessons can we learn about investing in humanity, healthcare, education, housing, parks, art, and an ethics and practices of solidarity? And what role can we play to end the Blockade?
