5 Days for the Five Most Successful Yet
By Stephen Kimber

There was the opening two-day conference focusing on the future of US-Cuba relations and featuring participants from around the world… a kick-off press conference at the National Press Club that generated interviews with the Washington Post, NPR and CCTV, not to forget lots of coverage in international media… a concert headlined by the well-known political hip hop group Dead Prez… a Saturday morning bicycle tour of Washington monuments by more than 25 delegates from Vancouver and elsewhere — their bikes festooned with “Obama, Give Me Five!” posters — who arrived at the White House en masse just as the main demonstration began… that 500-strong demonstration and march from the White House to the Justice Department… two intense days of lobbying more than 60 members of Congress by representatives of community, legislative and human rights groups from 31 countries… and even two meetings with senior State Department officials who’d never deigned to respond to requests for meetings in the past!
Not a bad week’s work...
