Australia—Cuba Friendship Society (Brisbane)


Southern Cross Brigade

    Since 1983 the ACFS has organised a work/study brigade to Cuba. The brigade travel to Cuba for around 25 days leaving Australia shortly after Christmas, and returning in late January.

Dates for 2018: The 37th Southern Cross Brigade will start on 28 December 2019 and finish on 17 January 2020.
The program is packed with visits travelling to various parts of Cuba, visits to hospitals, schools, cultural activities, meetings with trade unions, women's and youth organisations, as well as contributing solidarity to Cuba by working on agricultural or construction projects.
The cost of the Cuban leg is approximately $1200. The airfares are the responsibility of the traveller, however the Brigade coordinator can give some advice on this.
