Fourth Days of Action Against the Blockade
September 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - September 28, 2018 @ 9:00 pm
The Institute for Policy Studies again joins the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity along with other U.S. organizations in solidarity with Cuba, for the Fourth Days of Action Against the Blockade from the 24th to the 28th of September, 2018.
Many believe that the blockade is gone and that the United States and Cuba have normalized their relations. It is true that on December 17, 2014, President Obama and President Castro started a new approach to the relations between both countries but unfortunately the blockade remains intact.
The purpose of our activities is to raise awareness about the impact that the US blockade is having on the edcuation systems of the Cuban people, the people in the U.S., and those of Puerto Rico that is enforced as U.S. territory.
So, why is education a national priority in Cuba? Why is education under attack in the United States? And why must Puerto Ricans fight for their right to an education? Join us this year for the U.S. premiere of Lucha Si! The Fight for Public Education in Puerto Rico, in a double feature movie night with Maestra, Wednesday 26, 7:00-9:30pm at Landmark E Street Cinema. Tickets will be at the door, and are now available online.
This is an event that is part of “Days of Action Against the Blockade” (September 24-28). Watch the films. Meet the Directors. Talk with those on the front lines of the struggle. Engage in the discussion. Envision a better future.
