Cuban Caravan Still Coming


The Cuba Caravan dinner scheduled for 6 p.m. Sunday June 22nd, at the Unitarian Universalist Society (corner of Gilbert St. and Iowa Ave.) will be held as scheduled, but will now be a potluck, without admission (or live music), but with donations encouraged. A percentage of donations (20%) will go to Iowa City flood relief. The speaker will be Jim Bauman, who is traveling across the country raising awareness about the U.S. embargo of Cuba, and who will travel to Cuba in July.

Attenders are invited to bring any of the following items, to be delivered to the Cuban people by the Cuba Caravan, in an act of civil disobedience to the U.S. embargo of Cuba:
Box of crayons
Pens, pencils
Bars of soap
Toothbrush (must be in original packaging)
Prenatal or children's vitamins (MUST be sealed in original packaging, with expiration date after Feb 2009)

For those who cannot attend the event, but who would like to contribute to sending school and medical supplies to Cuba, please WRITE CHECKS TO PASTORS FOR PEACE (memo: Cuba Caravan); MAIL to: Peace Iowa,
Old Brick, 26 E. Market St,. Iowa City, IA 522445.
