Rally to Close Guantanamo and Give It Back to Cuba

February 23 is the 115th anniversary of the US seizure of Guantanamo from Cuba as a result of the provoked Spanish American war.

A strong socialist community in Boston is essential for working people and the dispossessed to build power and eventually replace capitalism with a social system based on human needs and not profit. BSUP hopes to foster more communication, cooperation and a broader vision of the future; it is our intention to support socialist and Left organizations and individuals through nonsectarian education and activities.

There are many ways to become involved:

Socialist and Left strategies and organizing to build capacity and impact are ever more urgently needed in these challenging times! We hope you will join us!

In solidarity,

Boston Socialist Unity Project
