Although the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, anti-Russian and anti-communist hysteria still fuels American foreign policy. In Cuba, our socialist neighbor in the Caribbean, the United States mounted an especially virulent cold war of dirty tricks, embargoes, blockades, and invasions to destroy Cuba, its economy, its people, and its spirit.

While President Obama eased this almost 60-year-old policy, the Trump administration is once again attacking Cuba and seeking regime change there. In this workshop, we will examine the Cold War tensions with Russia which spilled over to Cuba and examine also the new Cold War against Russia and Cuba.

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger Offers City Resources in response to Covid 19 Pandemic

Burlington Resource & Recovery Center: On Monday, March 23, we launched the Burlington COVID-19 Resource & Recovery Center, or RRC. The RRC's function is to provide relief to the economic disruption of COVID-19. If you are a renter worried about housing security, a business owner seeking access to federal assistance, a person experiencing homelessness who needs shelter, a Burlingtonian looking for information about City taxes and fees during this time or the federal aid that is coming, or someone looking to volunteer safely, you can get a 1-1 (remote) consult at the RRC and find many resources on the website. For more information, call (802) 755-7239 or go to the City website:
