Where: 9 Ross Valley Drive at 4th Street, San Rafael (First United Methodist Church)
What: Bay Area activist Gloria La Riva speaks on Cuba following her recent visit
Surprisingly, the change in administration in Washington has brought an intensification and sophistication of the US’s relentless siege on socialist Cuba. Foreign bank accounts have been seized and the screws have been tightened. At the same time, Cuba has been hit by a devastating series of hurricanes, which substantially destroyed homes, hospitals, power plants, and agriculture. The international financial crisis, starting on Wall Street, has impacted Cuba’s entry into world markets, creating one of its greatest challenges yet.
Gloria La Riva is the Peace and Freedom Party candidate for Congress in the 8th District (San Francisco). She is a member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, director of the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five, and an official in the Northern California Media Workers Union. She has twice addressed May Day rallies in Havana.
