Organized by the Che Guevara Brigade Committee of the Canadian Network on Cuba (CNC).
Revolutionary leader Che Guevara once said, “volunteer work is a school for building consciousness.” These words have inspired Cubans and people around the world, and in this spirit the Che Guevara Brigade is named for him. Since 1993, the Che Guevara Brigade has organized 27 annual brigades from Canada to Cuba, bringing hundreds of brigadistas to Cuba.
Join the webinar to hear speakers from Cuba and Canada, discussing Che Guevara’s ideas and his legacy today! This will also be an opportunity to find out how you can travel to Cuba on the 27th Che Guevara Brigade, November 15-30, 2020.
