Peoples Temple Collection; Box 17, Virtual Item 14, Q595,  Conspiracy, USSR, Jonestown meeting (588-596)
April 13,  1978

This tape, which is probably an earlier part of the meeting that concludes with tape 596, features discussions of the pros and cons of going to Cuba. Jones talks about the good educational system, vocational opportunities, medical facilities, and "fantastic beaches" there. While he complains about some "elitism" of Communist Party members that he saw on one trip, he also talks about the nightclubs -- built under Batista -- being open to the workers of Cuba, who have priority in using them.

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
