TO COINCIDE WITH THE BURIAL OF FIDEL’ S REMAINS IN SANTIAGO DE CUBA AND THE END OF THE NINE DAY MOURNING PERIOD IN CUBA FROM 9:00 AM TO 12:00 NOON, FRIENDS CAN ENTER THE CUBAN MISSION TO SIGN THE CONDOLENCE BOOK FOR FIDEL CASTRO
With the passing of the great revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on November 25, 2016 it is first and foremost to the Cuban people that we express our condolences and our solidarity.
Fidel was a product of a profound and rich Cuban and Latin American history, but it must be said that the example and legacy of Fidel belongs in truth to the world. And in particular to the oppressed and exploited overwhelming majority of humanity, in every corner of our Earth.

Today, for the 47th time since 1969, the Venceremos Brigade leaves the United States for Cuba.
