Help Pastors for Peace defend Cuba from US gov't. attacks. Defending Cuba supports the right of every nation to resist US neocolonial control and exploitation, and to use its resources for its own people.
This send-off is a great chance for those who have questions about Cuba (or a special interest in how it is possible to teach everyone to read and write, and how that changes everything.)
