45th Venceremos Brigade Invites Applicants

The 45th contingent of the Venceremos Brigade is getting ready to
travel to Cuba from July 20th to August 2nd. The group will visit
places of interests and will get a first had look at the current
economic transformations underway across the island. The Venceremos
Brigade will receive lectures on the Cuban reality and will be able to
exchange with the people and also participate in the July 26th

In 1969, a coalition of young people formed the Venceremos (We Shall
Overcome) Brigade, as a means of showing solidarity with the Cuban
Revolution by working side by side with Cuban workers and challenging
U.S. policies towards Cuba, including the economic blockade and our
government's ban on travel to the island. The first Brigades
participated in sugar harvests and subsequent Brigades have done
agricultural and construction work in many parts of the island.

It is the perfect moment to come to Cuba with the group as a number of
growing Americans are in favor of lifting the unjust economic blockade
and are calling for normalizing ties between both countries and the
release of the remaining 3 members of the Cuban Five.
