Pastors for Peace Caravan Report Back

People-power busts US blockade of Cuba!Report-back from the
19th Pastors for Peace Friendshipment
with David Moulton

Monday, August 18
Lafayette Community Center on Park Point

(3026 Minnesota Ave, Duluth)

In July, the NY-based Pastors for Peace successfully challenged the US blockade of Cuba by openly delivering 100s of tons of unlicensed material aid to an NGO in Havana. Along the way they were confronted by US federal agents, threatened with arrest and saw some of their aid confiscated. But nonviolent people-power won out, and Homeland Security was forced to relent and let the caravan and its aid go.

David Moulton represented the Twin Ports in this dramatic act of civil disobedience, and he's back to share slides and stories from the trip. Come out and hear all about it - from the tense border crossing to impressions of Cuba today - and learn how you can help change US policy toward Cuba for good.
