Milwaukee, WI - About 30 people gathered here, June 24, to stand in solidarity with socialist Cuba and Bolivarian Venezuela. The rally was called in response to President Trump’s unveiling of new restrictions on travel to Cuba.

Speakers at the rally explained Trump’s new policies towards Cuba, the history of Latin American struggle against U.S. imperialism, and the current fight for freedom in Venezuela. One of the speakers, Bryan Pfeiffer from Workers World, condemned the hypocrisy of President Trump’s statement that Cuba and Venezuela violate “human rights,” when Black and brown people in the U.S. are daily victims of police terror.

Attendees vowed to continue to rally in solidarity with people struggling from freedom everywhere. The rally was organized by the Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump, the Latin America Solidarity Committee, End the Wars Committee - Peace Action WI, the Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement, Workers World Party, and Freedom Road Socialist Organization.
