The May Day International Brigade to Cuba presents working people and youth with a unique opportunity to learn about the Cuban Revolution firsthand and the lessons it provides for advancing struggles by workers and farmers against capitalist rule worldwide.
The Cuban Institute for Friendship with the Peoples, which is sponsoring the trip, set a March 16 deadline for getting in applications to join the April 22-May 6 brigade. For a few more days it may still be possible to sign up. The cost for everything — including food, lodging and all travel inside Cuba — is $675. Airfare is extra.
In addition to joining the giant May Day march in Havana, brigadistas will participate in an international conference of solidarity with Cuba the next day. They will also visit workers on the factory floor, join farmers for work in the fields, and exchange views with leaders and members of the unions, the national women’s federation and other mass organizations.
