2022 marks the 60th anniversary of the US blockade of Cuba. Despite 29 UN votes calling for its termination, it remains the longest economic blockade in history and causes shortages across Cuban society.
To support Cuban teachers and students the NEU and Cuba Solidarity Campaign have launched a Viva La Educación, a year long appeal to send education equipment to Cuba and help break the cruel blockade.
Come to this meeting to hear about Cuba’s achievements as a result of its commitment to education for all, the challenges of COVID-19 and ongoing US sanctions on teachers and students, and why solidarity is vital and what you can do to help as the criminal blockade enters its seventh decade.
