Cuba: The People, the Government,

US policy and the Global Community

Overview

Learn how a socialist country manages to provide social services, education, health care, food, housing, safety and access to the arts to its citizens in an equitable manner, under the pressure of the US blockade.

Despite six decades of the US blockade, Cubans fiercely defend the revolution. US policy has been designed to crush the spirit of the Cuban people, make waste of the revolution’s gains, and finally cause regime change. But to this day, the Cuban government has been centered on the welfare of the people. This socio-economic system puts on display the tenacious resilience and kind spirit of the Cuban people--a model for the world to follow. Not only do Cubans fund social programs inside their island, they continue to send humanitarian aid abroad, most notably in their medical solidarity brigades and literacy campaigns. Cubans are fun, interesting, and creative people with a great amount of wisdom to impart and an eagerness to share their stories.
