“POT LUCK & POLITICS”
Monday, April 17th, 2017
6:00 – 7:00 PM Pot Luck Dinner
7:00 PM Presentation and Discussion
(6435 Frankstown Ave. at East Liberty Blvd.)
“La Lucha Continual! The Struggle Continues!”
Gail Walker, Executive-Director of the Inter-Religious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO) and Pastors for Peace will be in Pittsburgh to discuss our solidarity work given the advent of the Trump Administration.
Pittsburgh has a special opportunity to have an in-depth discussion on how the Trump Administration’s actions and policies impact the peoples of Cuba, Latin America, Central America, Haiti, Palestine, among others.
Cuba is likely more threatened now on many fronts than it has been since the triumph of their Revolution. The U.S. blockade remains in full force and Trump may potentially undo everything President Obama achieved to begin the process of opening doors. Executive Actions can be altered and we must continue to demand the repeal of the Helms-Burton Act (blockade) and Torricelli Act (travel ban).
Pastors for Peace itself has been under siege for its solidarity work and had its 501c3 tax exempt status removed even though they have a fifty year history of working for international peace and justice.
