("Cuba in Focus" is probably the only
regularly scheduled program in the US
whose sole focus is the island and its
politics, society and relationship with
the United States. [Francisco Aruca's
programs are great, but have a focus
on broader issues as well as Cuba.]

Dear All

This is an urgent call for support for this marathon special
on Cuba from the "Cuba in Focus" collective, Basir Mchawi of
"Education at the Crossroads" and Rosa Clemente of "Where
We Live".

On May 20th Bush will unveil his new Cuba policy, and in
light of increased aggression against the island (including
the expulsion of 14 diplomats last week!)

This type of information is desperately needed if an armed
agression against Cuba is to be circumvented by those who
support the continuation of the Cuban revolution.

Secondarily, we need to show the management at WBAI that
this type of programming about Cuba is important and
supported by the listeners...

We urge you to support us in this fund drive by pledging
whatever monetary support you can... We appreciate it and
pledge back to you that we will continue to produce high
quality programs on this subject.

Yours in struggle,

Sally O'Brien
(ps.  please forward this to your list serves)
