Cuba: A Revolution in Motion (June 18 - July 1, 2017)

The Center for Global Justice is announcing a new study trip to Cuba, led by Dr. Cliff DuRand, UU from Asheville. This is the organization with which I traveled to Cuba last year and Chiapas, Mexico last month.

Cuba is a nation of 11 million people and has embarked on a bold effort to create a major cooperative sector in its economy.  On this trip, sponsored by the Center for Global Justice, you will meet with members of Cuba’s new cooperatives, sharing experiences and ideas. You will hear from some of the country’s leading thinkers about how they are reshaping their socialism in a more participatory, democratic way.  

Please join our delegation of activists, scholars and cooperativistas as we explore these exciting developments.  While many people are now able to visit Cuba more freely, few groups are able to offer such an in-depth experience. Drawing on our 25 years experience offering educational trips to Cuba, we have unique access that goes beyond the usual tourist attractions. We will dialogue with Cuban specialists, visit new cooperatives as well as private businesses, and experience the vitality of the people and their culture.  

For those who want to extend their stay in Cuba, we also offer an optional 3 day trip to the historic Bay of Pigs and the colonial town of Trinidad.

It is estimated that the basic 14 day trip will cost $2,000 to $2,500 plus airfare, including shared hotel room, breakfasts, light lunches, translation, guide, and the program of activities.  With regular commercial air service now open from many U.S. cities, it is possible to fly directly to Havana.  Deadline for applications is May 1, 2017.  Apply now as space is limited.

Contact Paul Burnore, President, Board of Trustees, for general information. For an application form and further information email cuba@globaljusticecenter.org
