Why there are no George Floyds in Cuba
Sunday, April 11, 3 p.m.
 
 
On May 25, 2020 video of George Floyd being tortured to death by Minneapolis police outraged the world leading to protests by millions of people around the world. Today even as people like Breonna Taylor are being killed with impunity by police, Derek Chauvin is on trial for the murder of George Floyd as the world watches. 62 Years ago the people of Cuba made a revolution, showing that a better world is possible. While a big percentage of people in Cuba are Afro-Cubans, they are not gunned down or strangled to death by police. Join us for a webinar program and discussion:
