Program overview

XVI European Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba in Berlin from 11.09. – 11.11.2012

The meeting will take place at Hotel Kolumbus in Hohenschönhausen district in the east of Berlin, (former capital of GDR).

The delegates will sleep, eat and hold the meeting in the hotel, thus everything will be taking place under one umbrella.

Following intensive discussions at the Netzwerk-board and members' meeting, it was decided on 05.14.11 to set up working groups at that meeting.

We propose three groups with the following topics:

1. the five patriots

2. the EU common position towards Cuba

3. the media policy

There will be short lectures in order to get the working groups atuned.

At the meeting there will be no speaking contributions of the delegates in the plenum.

That is why we ask you to priorly send us short statements in writing about your work/experiences of the last two years to insert them into the conference folder.

On friday after dinner, there is planned a cultural evening with music, maybe film, and oportunities for the delegates to interact.

On saturday evening we would like to present an event with a representative of the European Parliament fraction „GUE/NGL“on the subject of the relations of the EU with Cuba. It will also take place in the hotel.

On sunday afternoon we could offer an optional sight-seeing tour of Berlin, if requested by several delegates.
