FIDEL & THE CUBAN REVOLUTION: HOW FAR WE HAVE COME Print E-mail






SATURDAY JANUARY 21

JOE’S CAFE - 7pm

(Large North Hall)

1150 Commercial Dr. @ William St.

Vancouver, Canada


Speakers:


  • TAMARA HANSENAuthor of “Five Decades of the Cuban Revolution: The Challenges of an Unwavering Leadership” & Coordinator of Vancouver Communities in Solidarity with Cuba (VCSC)
     
  • ALI YEREVANIPolitical Editor of the Fire This Time Newspaper


On November 25, 2016 Raúl Castro, the President of Cuba, appeared on Cuban television and announced the passing of Comandante Fidel Castro at the age of 90. The news spread quickly around the world, as did the messages of condolences, in recognition of the incredible impact of his extraordinary life.


In the 90 years of his extraordinary life, Comandante Fidel outlasted 10 U.S. presidents (11 counting President Barack Obama). He also survived over 600 assassination attempts orchestrated by the U.S. government and the CIA. Through his unwavering leadership Comandante Fidel Castro steered the Cuban Revolution through 57 years of great gains and great challenges, and through his undying revolutionary internationalism Fidel continued to support the struggles of all oppressed peoples for a just and better world.


Join Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice this Saturday January 21 for this important forum to discuss many topics, including:


  • Who was Comandante Fidel Castro and how will he be remembered?
     
  • What does Comandante Fidel's passing mean for the future of the Cuban Revolution?
     
  • What could be the future of U.S.-Cuba relations with incoming U.S. President Donald Trump?
     
  • How do these changes and others impact the development of Cuba's socialist project?
