Canberra, December 27, 2022. The Southern Cross Brigade will travel to Cuba from 29/12/2022 to 17/01/2023, after two years of not having taken place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Brigade, in its 38th edition, will be made up of 15 members of the Cuba solidarity movement, who are traveling with the aim of getting to know the political, economic and social reality of the country, as well as learning a little more about its history.
The extensive program of activities, coordinated by the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), includes a stay at the Julio Antonio Mella International Camp; an exchange with the Korimakao socio-cultural project; visits to the Fidel Castro Ruz Center, the Ernesto Che Guevara Sculpture Complex, and various universities and health centers; as well as an exchange with the scientists who developed the Cuban vaccines against COVID-19.
The Southern Cross Brigade's trip to Cuba ratifies the commitment of the Australian solidarity movement to the Cuban government and people. It also marks the end of a year characterized by constant support for the Cuban Revolution, vigorous denunciation of the U.S. blockade and fundraising to help the Cuban people.
