Please Welcome the Pastors for Peace CaravanPlease join us in welcoming to Columbia the Pastors for Peace humanitarian-aid Caravan to Cuba. A program will take place Wednesday, July 13, 6:00-8:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall of First Christian Church, downtown at 101 N. 10th St. The old-timey band, Green Corn will perform. A potluck dinner begins at 6:15, followed by a presentation with caravan speaker, Antonio Rosell.
Antonio is a native of Peru and has lived in Minneapolis since 1994. He has traveled with Pastors for Peace to Chiapas, Honduras, Nicaragua and Cuba. He is director of Community Design Group, a small collaborative association of designers working with neighborhoods and community organizations in Minneapolis.
Antonio is an urban planner and a registered civil engineer. The focus of his practice is on transportation, economic development and revitalization, and the role that immigrant entrepreneurs are playing in bringing new life to our cities.
For more than four decades, the U.S. government has immorally continued sanctions against the people of Cuba. Pastors for Peace provides mid-Missourians and citizens throughout this continent a concrete opportunity to assist the Cuban people. Fifteen branches of the caravan have begun criss-crossing Canada and the United States ultimately stopping in more than 100 communities, including Columbia.
There is no admission to the Columbia program, but a free-will offering will be collected. Donations of specific medical and educational supplies can still be accepted up until the evening of the event. Monetary donations would be extremely welcome; checks should be written out to “IFCO” (Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization, the umbrella organization which oversees Pastors for Peace) and mailed either to FOR, P.O. Box 268, Columbia MO 65205 or to IFCO/Pastors for Peace, 402 W. 145th St., NY NY 10031. More information on the caravan to Cuba or this program-- sponsored locally by the Columbia Peace Coalition—can be obtained by calling me at 449-4585 or Mandy Manderino at 445-6188.

As many of you are also no doubt sadly aware, Cuba and other Caribbean nations are being blasted by Hurricane Dennis at this time. I’ve pasted below a radio news report broadcast yesterday (since then I’ve heard that at least 10 people have been reported killed so far as a result of the storm). Any assistance we could offer here and elsewhere through Pastors will come at a particularly helpful time for our sisters and brothers in Cuba.
