631 N 19th, Milwaukee, The Coffee House, 7-9 P.M.
Fundraiser for Cuba after Hurricane Irma.
Speakers and Entertainment TBA
Much of Cuba has been devastated by Hurricane Irma, the first Category 5 hurricane to make landfall in Cuba’s history. Thousands of homes, agriculture, electrical plants, the infrastructure, have been seriously damaged. The Cuban people, government, and mass organizations are working hard in the recovery efforts. Even more damaging than natural disaster is the U.S. economic blockade, which has cost the country hundreds of billions of dollars and hampers its development. Cuba is renowned for extending international solidarity to people around the world with medical workers and teachers; even as Hurricane Irma hit Cuba, Cuba was sending 750 medical personnel to other islands in the Caribbean which had been devastated by the hurricane.
Entertainers will include guitarist & vocalist Darele Bisquera, and Troubadour Tony Baez performing songs of love and struggle from the Hispanic world, plus New Orleans jazz and a special music performance from Havana!”
It is our turn to come to Cuba’s aid!
