Over £32m raised for good causes through easyfundraising
Rock around the Blockade, founded in 1995, is a campaign in Britain in defence of socialist Cuba. We campaign actively against the US blockade of Cuba; in solidarity with revolutionary movements throughout Latin America; for the release of the Cuban 5 falsely imprisoned in the US; against the imperialist occupation and prison at Guantanamo Bay. Cuba shows that there is an alternative to poverty, racism and war. We use this example to show how socialism is a system that can provide for humanity. Since 1995 we sent 11 brigades to Cuba, providing material aid to Cuban youth. In Britain we organise rallies, educational meetings, film showings and live music events. In February/March 2008 we organised a speaking tour across Britain with three Cubans speaking. In 2010 RATB finished work on a documentary film, Cuba: Defending Socialism, Resisting Imperialism, filmed during the 2009 Rock around the Blockade solidarity brigade to Cuba. We provide a voice for Cuba through our website and our blog www.ratbnews.blogspot.com.
