Help Chicago Activists Travel to Guantanamo, Cuba for the International Seminar for Peace and Elimination of Military Bases

On November 20th-28th, activists across the globe are gathering in Cuba to unite the fight against the global powers that have built military bases in all continents against the will of the people. This meeting will take place in Guantanamo Province, where a US military base has become one of the most brutal torture centers on the planet and a symbol of the gross human rights abuses committed by the US government in the name the war on terror. Anti-War Committee Chicago (AWC) is honored to announce that three of its younger members, Kait McIntyre, Holly Kent-Payne, and Jeff Westberry, have been invited to participate in this historic event, the World Peace Council's Fourth International Seminar for Peace and Elimination of Military Bases. We will be part of the delegation with the United National Antiwar Coalition. 

However, we need a financial commitment from you to make sure they're able to get there.  The activists in the AWC are motivated by a desire to better the world we live in. We believe you want the same thing. Your contribution will bring us one step closer to ending the destructive military industrial complex that has killed millions of people and destroyed countless lives. The funds raised will go toward plane tickets, visa applications, registration fees, housing, meals, and travel in Cuba.

Click here to donate. We appreciate donations of any size but, if possible, hope that individuals can give at least $50 and that organizations can donate at least $100.

If you would prefer to mail your contribution, please send checks to Anti-War Committee, c/o CCDBR, 1325 S. Wabash, Chicago, IL 60605. If you cannot contribute financially, we value the time you spend spreading the word about this important cause. If you have any talents or resources that may aid this campaign, do not hesitate to contact us. Holly, Kait, and Jeff, along with the entire Anti-War Committee Chicago, look forward to sharing the fruit of the experience you help make possible.
