    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. As a visionary thinker, revolutionary leader and tireless fighter against injustice until the end of his life, there is much to learn from Che Guevara's life and ideas.

    Join the webinar to hear speakers from Cuba, Canada and the UK, 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!

** Special Appeal **
The cruel and immoral U.S. blockade against Cuba has been imposed for over 60 years, and has been even more harsh at this time of pandemic. We encourage you to sign the Canadian parliamentary petition, demanding that the U.S. government end their blockade on Cuba!

Organized by the Che Guevara Brigade Committee of the Canadian Network on Cuba (CNC)
The Che Guevara Brigade is a project of the Canadian Network on Cuba, a network of Cuba solidarity organizations across Canada promoting friendship and solidarity with Cuba and the Cuban people.
