Four thousand journalists and support workers from the United States will be headed to Havana, Cuba, later this month to cover the visit of Pope John Paul II.

Just ahead of the journalistic mob, Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman got a chance to travel to Havana last week with Global Exchange, the human rights group based in San Francisco, California.

Over the upcoming weeks, in the run-up to the Pope’s visit, Democracy Now! will be playing some of the many interviews that Amy had with a range of Cubans and non-Cubans, including some Americans granted political asylum in the Caribbean country.

But today, to give a sense of place, the look into Cuba will begin with a tour — a social and political tour of one of the oldest cities in the Americas, Havana.
