DC Forum - Obama's Visit to Cuba: What It Means for Cubans & Progressives in the US
April 08, 2016 at 7:00pm - 10pm
President Obama just became the first sitting president to visit Cuba since the 1959 Revolution. His visit came just over a year after the historic normalization of relations between the United States and Cuba that took place in December 2014.
Though the visit represents major progress, the blockade is firmly in place. The Republican Party is threatening to undo any progress towards normalization. The U.S. agenda – that of Democrats and Republicans alike – remains counterrevolution: the overthrow of the Cuban Revolution, government and Communist Party.
This is a critical moment for Cuba. Join the PSL for a discussion of the challenges and opportunities this new opening represents, and what progressive and revolutionary people in the United States can do to combat imperialist propaganda.
