U.S. Out of Guantánamo!

Many people believe U.S./Cuban relations are now normalized – but truth is the U.S. economic war against Cuba and its travel ban are still solidly in place.
February 23, 2018 marks the 115th anniversary of the seizure of Cuba’s Guantánamo Bay by the U.S. government in order to create a military naval base and torture center. To this day Washington continues to occupy that piece of Cuban territory, maintaining a naval base and infamous prison camp, against the sovereign rights of the Cuban people

Please join us Saturday evening February 24th at SEIU Union headquarters for a special showing of ‘All Guantánamo Is Ours’ about Washington’s 120-year military occupation of Cuba’s territory and its impact on the local Cuban residents.
