Rally to Close Guantanamo and Give it back to Cuba!

When: Saturday, February 24, 2018, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Where: Park Street Station • Tremont and Park Streets • Boston

Join us Saturday, February 24, 1 pm at Park Street to demand that the detention center at Guantanamo be shut down and that the Guantanamo Bay base be returned to Cuba. 

February 23 is the 115th anniversary of when the US seized Guantanamo from Cuba as a result of the provoked Spanish American war.  It has been a sore point in Cuba-US relations for a long time.  Our country should give Guantanamo back to Cuba and begin to heal our relationship with that brave nation, that has withstood the most brutal US embargo for decades, while managing to do good works around the world in spite of it.

"Trump Global Policies and the Threat of WW III" with Mark Solomon

When: Sunday, November 5, 2017, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

Donald Trump has promised a foreign policy that "puts America first," threatening to uproot the global imperil order in effect since the end of World War II. He has threatened to ignite nuclear war against North Korea, has threatened to cancel the nuclear agreement with Iran, has antagonized friends and adversaries from Mexico to China and has withdrawn from the Paris climate accord. However, are such acts totally at odds with global policies pursued by both past Democratic and Republican administrations? That question demands investigation and action.
