Free the Cuban Five!

Rev. Luis Barrios of IFCO/Pastors For Peace and other carvanistas made a stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin July 8 at the Central United Methodist Church to meet fellow friends of Cuba, to gather supplies and to participate in a dinner and evening forum where presenters talked about the U.S. economic blockade of Cuba and other topics regarding the socialist nation. A special guest of honor at the evening forum was Milwaukee resident Joya Mosely who is one of the students in the United States who received free medical education in Cuba. After the presentations everyone joined in to pack supplies into the bus which had been stored at the Central United Methodist Church, site of the Milwaukee event. The carvanistas on this bus, which included an array of working people including a woman from London who flew to Minneapolis to join the bus tour there, is on its way south to Mexico where all the buses on the caravans that have traveled throughout the U.S. gathering supplies will be loaded onto ships bound for Cuba. On July 9 a similar event took place in Racine. Both events were sponsored by the Wisconsin Coalition to Normalize Relations With Cuba and the Racine event was co-sponsored by the Racine/Kenosha Central American Solidarity Coalition (CASC) and the Racine Coalition for Peae and Justice.
