Sandino Gomez and others 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, Chris Alonso, Eden Fabian, and Sandino Gomez, members of the Watsonville Brown Berets 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 share 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.
