CubaBuzz: Issue 6

IFCO’s CubaBuzz: Issue 6
In an effort to better inform our supporters about issues related to Cuba we will be producing a weekly digest of articles on news about the Island; its progress, challenges and the ongoing process of normalizing relations with its neighbor to the north. Many of these articles will be very informative and useful for preparing for your meetings with elected officials when the 27th Caravan makes a stop in your city

Please note: The views and opinions expressed in these articles are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of IFCO/Pastors for Peace.  While we might not agree with all the language in the reports list below, given the rapid rate of change in US-Cuba relations and the increased flow of information about Cuba, we feel it is important to stay informed.
