On Wednesday, July 26th, a high level delegation from Cuba representing the Cuban Confederation of Workers (CTC) will visit Washington.
According to organizers in the US Cuba Labor Exchange, it is unprecedented that such a high level delegation from Cuba would be issued visas. This is an example of how the political climate is changing with regards to policy on Cuba, in the aftermath of the Elian Gonzalez affair. The Cuban participants are: Olga Rosa Gomez Cortes - General Secretary of Cultural Workers and deputy of the National Assembly of the Peoples Power. Leonel Gonzalez Gonzalez - Deputy for the National Assembly of the Peoples Power and a member of their commission of Foreign Relations. Manuel Montero Bistilleiro - Secretary of the Union Bureau of National Sports of Industry Workers Union and responsible for the relations with the Americas of the International Relations Dept. of the CTC. Please join us in welcoming this delegation to DC. We will have a reception from 7:30pm to 8:00pm, with food, drinks and ca$h bar, followed by short presentations from the delegation, and Question and Answer period. The reception will be at La Casa, 3166 Mount Pleasant Street NW
