Despite the choppy political waters, the humanitarian-aid boat may be just the kind of thing the Democracy Movement needs to stay on course. And the organization shows no sign of losing steam, as evidenced by the Big Five event, which brought together members of diverse groups such as SAVE Dade, the American Civil Liberties Union, and old-guard anti-Castristas like the Mothers Against Repression and Agenda Cuba. (Cuban American National Foundation chairman Jorge Mas Santos was invited but did not attend.) After the speeches, which were kept short, participants enjoyed a fine meal featuring stuffed Cornish game hen and then danced until midnight to the salsa rhythms of the Conjunto Los Profesionales. The fete raised about $16,700 of the needed $500,000, which means there are roughly 30 galas to go.
