Annual Caravan To Cuba In The Works

Work crew from 2019 caravan.

Politics and political activism have definitely moved to a less-important place as the coronavirus pandemic rolls on.  Not gone and not forgotten, but definitely overshadowed. 

Elections are still scheduled, and political demonstrations are still planned.  Those include the annual "Friendshipment Caravan" to take goods to Cuba sometime in the fall. 

A stop in Ashland was intended in the spring, but it has been canceled for now.  Two guests join us: Stephanie Sarantos, the principal speaker for the caravan, and Mary Ann Jones, the Rogue Valley organizer.
