The last events of the Days of Action Against the Blockade took place on September 27 in the DC area. One at the University of Maryland, College Park Nyumburu Cultural Center and the other at Howard University, Ralph J Bunche International Affairs Center. At both events Norma Guillard, Dr. Elizabeth Arnold and Dr Eduardo Alvarado spoke. Miguel Fraga, First Secretary of the Cuban Embassy accompanied both events.
In the presentations, Norma Guillard elicited dialog with the audiences asking what the conditions are here concerning education. At the Howard University event community members explained about the lack of funding, oversized classes and the closing of schools in the area. This situation stands in sharp contrast with Cuba, whose government has an unshakable commitment to the education of all.
