No to FBI harassment!
TODAY IT’S ME, TOMORROW IT COULD BE YOU. Support the Venceremos Brigade!
Participants in the Venceremos Brigade exercise their constitutional rights to travel to Cuba, challenging the travel ban imposed by the U.S. government. Recently, members of the VB have been visited by the FBI, as have others doing Cuba solidarity work.
Please join the VB in a discussion of the historical context in which this is occurring, and planning action against this harassment.
