Chicago Cuba Coalition
Meeting # 3,492 - The Chicago Cuba Coalition – local affiliate of the National Network on Cuba (NNOC) – unites groups and individuals to stand for completely-normalized relations between Cuba and the United States while publicizing the accomplishments of the Cuban people’s Revolution.
We stand for free travel between the two countries and ending Washington’s economic and regime-change warfare as well as its illegal military occupation of Cuba’s Guantanamo territory.
Everyone interested in these goals – with no dues, restrictions, or requirements demanded– is more than welcome to get involved!

Through political cartoons, public advertising and classic photos, let's reflect on some "bad old days" in America. Are current immigrants doomed to re-live these historic nightmares? Is there good news to share? Join us for some answers.
