Curious about Cuba? (Reference Sheet)

I’m so happy whenever I get a chance to talk about Cuba, especially when I’ve given presentations or led discussions. I hope to post — if it gets edited! — a video based on a recent presentation with pictures at a “Green Sunday” (hosted by the Green Party of Alameda County, and video-taped by Jonathan Nack).

If you are Curious about Cuba, you’re in good company. It’s fascinating in so many ways. This blog has references to help you satisfy some of your curiosity!

About Laura Wells: Solutions
I ran for Controller in California in 2014 on a State Bank and Tax The Rich platform. I am part of the “No Corporate Money” Campaign, in which candidates pledge to take no corporate money and voters declare our intention to vote for no-corporate-money candidates. As a Green Party candidate for Governor of California in 2010, I was arrested outside a gubernatorial debate for “trespassing at a private party.” But we won't stop, and so let's create a "public party" where we debate solutions to California's finances, like implementing a State Bank and taxing the rich -- to reduce the disparity and open up opportunities.
