Cuba and Palestine in Solidarity at Palestine Conference in Detroit

Cuba solidarity activists from the May Day Brigade who recently traveled to Cuba this year recently attended the Palestine Conference in Detroit this past weekend, May 24-26, 2024. The May Day Brigadistas show what true International Solidarity is all about at a time when the U.S. mainstream is completely silence on what is happening in Palestine and Cuba. 

Cuba’s history of internationalism stretches back to the early days of the Revolution. Cuba was at the forefront of international action against Apartheid in South Africa. On his release from prison, Nelson Mandela declared, “If it were not for Cuba I would not be a free man today.”

Cuban internationalism has focused on health and education, especially emergency medical brigades and training medical students from developing countries.

The Cuban people have a long history of solidarity with the Palestinians and continue that same strong bond with one another. 

I’m so honored and proud to be part of such an extraordinary brigade who are committed, focused, and most importantly, have the Revolutionary Spirit within them that continues to grow daily. There is no doubt in my mind that we will continue this solidarity fight together.
