On December 6th at the Peace Resource Center in Seaside, located at 1364 Fremont Blvd, 3 members of the Watsonville Brown Berets will share a slide show presentation as well as personal reports and testimonials about their experiences with the 2009 Pastors for Peace 20th annual Caravan to Cuba. The Caravan is a nonviolent direct action that brings literally tons and tons of aid to the island nation in open and direct defiance of the US embargo and travel ban against the island nation. Rob Erlich, Eden Fabian, and Sandino Gomez all went with the caravan this past July and spent 9 days in Cuba during the 50th anniversary celebrations. They visited numerous Cuban institutions like schools, organic gardens, community and cultural centers, clinics, research centers, and more during their time there. They will shrare these experiences and more during the presentation. The presentation will be followed by a Q and A, and merchandise to support the project will be available for sale.

Attached is one of the first widely published photos of Fidel since his operation and the handing of power over to his brother. He has been very reclusive during his recovery from that surgery but he wanted to meet with the leadership of the Pastors for Peace Cuba Caravan, the Rev. Lucius Walker, Ellen Bernstien, and Rev. Tom Smith, from left to right.
