Cuba faces severe economic and pandemic challenges today. Most of them result from the long-standing United States embargo of the island, an imperial campaign that goes back to the founding of the Cuban Revolution in 1959.

The “Cuba Today” program will include a video presentation by Merri Ansara, a founding member of CCDS, long-time advocate for normalizing relations with Cuba, and part-time resident of Havana, and discussions led by Ansara and Pat Fry, CCDS founding member and an activist with the New York/ New Jersey Cuba Si Coalition.

The program will consist of a 30 minute video, comments by Ansara and Fry, and discussion to follow.

Who is behind the upsurge of protest in Cuba?


What is the US blockade and what has been its impacts?


Also excellent are the couple of minutes long video “Cuba’s July 11th protests”  from Belly of the beast


And/or What do Cubans think
