Help fund our trip to Cuba: The Anarchist News dot org Kick Starter

We’re starting a crowd funding campaign to visit Cuba. We will also conduct some reviews of anarchism while we’re there and maybe report back on it. Please donate or something like that.

Thanks.

Stuff we plan to do:

- visit Cuba

- maybe write report back

- visit beach

- possibly smoke a cigar, and just maybe, drink some rum

- eat Trotsky cookie that was sent to us years ago

- leave Cuba

All the stuff we do can be yours once you donate to help keep our site alive! Smash the like button and subscribe! Also, please don't republish our content without our express written permission!

Pretty sure there's not many anarchists in cuba as they're detained and made into habanos.

I've been there (albeit only in tourist areas). The ordinary people are great, some of the officials can be assholes. The food is fantastic, that's what surprised us the most, was the food. We were warned about the food being bland, but we didn't experience that at all. Maybe the food is different for tourists. The nightlife is ok, bit not that exciting. Not all the shops and bars advertise very prominently (and some not at all), so you might have to do some searching and wandering if you're looking for some place specific. There's really not a lot to do except party, visit designated tourist and historic sites, and drink. Luckily most things are pretty cheap, though not as cheap as some parts of Mexico. The beaches are beautiful and very clean. I don't think the same can be said for the brothels, so stay away. The women are not that good looking anyway (unless you like the hottentott look). We got drunk one night and joked about going to find Gitmo and break out the prisoners there, but Gitmo is way on the other end of the island from where we were (Havana, Santa Clara).

One more thing, try to keep anything that makes you obviously seem 'American' on the down low. Cubans don't particularly take a shining to Americans. We (being Canadians) heard stories of American medical students and other special US visitors getting robbed. Slap a Canadian flag on your backpack, or at least try not to act like the stereotypical 'ugly American'.
