Milwaukee, April 18: Religion and Revolution – Cuban Style

Hosted by The Wisconsin Coalition to Normalize Relations with Cuba

Hear firsthand how Cuban believers in the gospel worked to support the goals of the revolution for free and universal healthcare and education, and to bridge the gap between church and government. After years of effort, COEBAC (the Coordination of Baptist Students and Workers in Cuba), which was founded in 1974 by progressive Baptist university students, prevailed and eventually showed that there was no conflict between faith and revolution.

Gladys Abella was a student at the triumph of the revolution in 1959 and has been active in COEBAC. She is currently a leader of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Marianao, Havana and works for the Cuban Council of Churches. Ms. Abella played a key role in the creation of the historic Martin Luther King Center in Havana, a project of the Ebenezer Baptist church.

Please join us to hear her story as a student activist and now an established leader of one of Cuban’s most prominent churches and non-governmental organizations. She will also share her thoughts on the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King and current issues relating to US-Cuba policy from a Cuban perspective.

Madison, March 31: All Out Against Fascism and Hate

Hosted by Madison IWW General Defense Committee

http://tinyurl.com/kuhc9bc

The Madison General Defense Committee of the IWW stands in solidarity with the Seattle GDC member, Hex, who was shot and almost killed, having spent many weeks in ICU, while protecting innocents from fascist pepper spray attacks. The Madison GDC also stands opposed to Daniel Dropik and the American Freedom Party having any presence what so ever or having any platform to spew their vitriolic antiBlack antiMuslim antiImmigrant “speech” (speech that advocates the killing and even genocide of people based on their skin color). We understand that Daniel Dropik has made it a habit of burning Black churches and that the American Freedom Party is the group that inspired Dylan Roof, that is why we will accept NO public presence of the group in Madison.
