Cuba’s Javier Cabrera on the Impact of the US Blockade of Cuba’s Economic, Social and Environmental Programs

July 14 @ 2:00 pm

Javier Cabrera will discuss Cuba’s changing economic development program, its community health care program, and its programs to combat climate change.

He will explain how the US blockade of Cuba, begun in 1961, and condemned on a yearly basis by overwhelming UN vote,  interferes in Cuba’s ability to carry out these programs. There will be ample time for extended Q&A with the audience.
