KGNU’s Gavin Dahl interviews grassroots activist Lauren Steiner, who just returned to the U.S. from a delegation to Cuba organized by Code Pink. She was visiting colleges with her teenage son and meeting with fractivists along the front range over the weekend. She says the Cuban people are adamant about three requests of the United States.

1. End the embargo, which they call a blockade
2. Be removed from the ‘State Sponsors of Terrorism’ list
3. Return Guantanamo Bay to Cuba and close the prison
