GREEN CUBA: ecological alternatives in Havana and beyond

June 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free
cuba

Cuba became a living experiment in a post-petrol future for humanity after the collapse of the Soviet Union meant a cut-off of subsidized oil. This prompted a big push for self-sufficient and ecological models—bicycle transportation and urban farms in Havana, organic agriculture in the countryside. A generation later, Cuba is getting subsidized oil from Venezuela, opening up its economy, and hoping for an end to the US embargo. Have these ecological alternatives survived? Longtime East Village writer and activist Bill Weinberg reports back from his visit to the island, with photos and discussion on Cuba’s squats, community gardens and organic farms.
