Dear ACFS members and supporters,
ALL FIVE OF THE CUBAN FIVE ARE NOW BACK IN CUBA, REUNITED AT LAST WITH THEIR LOVED ONES!!
The Cuban streets have erupted in celebration. The US and Cuba will resume normal diplomatic relations and it looks like the beginning of the end of the US blockade. This is a BIG VICTORY for the Cuban Revolution and for the global solidarity movement. The US empire will now try to destroy the Cuban Revolution by other, less confrontational means: Obama said as much in his speech. The Cuban Revolution and our solidarity now enter a new phase with new challenges. For now, the blockade remains largely intact.
You can watch Obama's and Raul Castro's announcements here:
All friends of Cuba are invited to celebratory drinks and toasts
WHEN: this Saturday, December 20 from 7pm
WHERE: Bank Hotel beer garden, 324 King Street Newtown (very close to Newtown train station)
Long live socialist Cuba!
End the US blockade now!
Hope to see you on Saturday night,
President, Sydney ACFS
