Attend the spectacular May Day Rally in Plaza de la Revolución, Havana

Brigades have run for a number of years and have involved delegates from Unite, UNISON, GMB, CWU, BFAWU, PCS, RMT, TSSA, NAPO, USDAW and the UCU. Over the previous decade over 300 young trade unionists have taken part in our May Day Brigade. Many have gone on to become increasingly active within their trade union and the Cuba Solidarity Campaign.

The May Day Brigade usually consists of members, activists and officers aged 18-35, but it is possible for anyone over 18 years old to participate if they wish.

The cost (tbc) includes flights, accommodation (dormitory style on the brigade camp), three meals a day, internal transport, visas, entrance costs at museums/historical sites and a full programme of activities.
