Become a Friend of Cuba Solidarity Campaign
Becoming a ‘Friend of Cuba Solidarity Campaign’ is one of the best ways of supporting Cuba.
As a Friend of Cuba Solidarity Campaign your donation contributes to the core work of CSC, directly helping our efforts to defend Cuba’s sovereignty and campaign against the illegal US blockade.
CSC receives no grants and relies completely on fundraising and the generosity of our supporters. We do an excellent job of raising funds for special projects, specific campaigns and for material aid projects in Cuba. But it is so much more difficult to raise funds to cover the everyday costs involved in running an organisation like CSC such as office administration, production of campaign materials and travel costs for visiting Cubans and speakers.
Friends of Cuba Solidarity Campaign support the long term work of the campaign by contributing a minimum of £200 per annum and in return benefit from:
- a 20% discount on all CSC sales and resources
- advance notice of events and socials
- special invitations to ‘partner’ events such as the Cuban National Ballet, concerts by Cuban musicians, Cuban film showings
- a ‘Friends Christmas pack’ once a year with a special selection of goods from our sales catalogue
- free annual membership of CSC
- an invitation to the special annual Friends’ reception
Tony Benn (former Friend and patron of CSC) “Cuba has inspired millions across the world who are still living in poor conditions enforced by US policies. We all have so much to learn from Cuba. I urge you if you can to support ‘Friends of Cuba’.
Benjamin Zephaniah, Poet “I am a proud patron of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign and I am a proud friend of Cuba. We do what we do to support a small nation that is fighting to defend its sovereignty. We do what we do to gain justice for the Miami Five, to help with hurricane relief, and to support Cuban medical teams wherever they go in the world. Join us. Help us to continue this work. We need you because the Cuban people need us. Please support our work. Any Friend of Cuba is a friend of mine”
Baroness Angela Smith, Leader of the Opposition in the House of Lords “I am proud to be a member of the ‘Friends of Cuba’. It is a direct and effective way of helping the people of Cuba. By supporting the campaigning work of CSC we can together make a real difference in our efforts to defend Cuba against the ongoing threat posed by those who want to see an end to the social gains of the Revolution”
