On Sunday December 4, Cuba will hold the official state funeral for Comandate Fidel Castro, the outstanding and revolutionary visionary leader of the Cuban revolution and revolutionary struggle for a better world. As the Cuban people commemorate, remember and mourn, here in Vancouver we will continue to remember the life of Comandante Fidel together as well.

Vancouver Communities in Solidarity with Cuba (VCSC) invites everyone to join us for a full day of excellent documentary films about Cuba’s revolutionary internationalist leader. This day of films will be a chance to review the important leadership role that Fidel Castro played from the beginning of the Cuban Revolution to his recent 90th birthday on August 13, 2016 in Cuba, in Latin America and all around the world.

IMPORTANT: Throughout the day attendees will be encouraged to sign the condolences book from Vancouver, and the online condolences book established by the Cuban Embassy in Ottawa, Canada. https://flic.kr/p/PGkpGG

There will be snacks and refreshments available throughout the day. The full program for the film festival is below. The film festival is a free event. All films have English subtitles.

Now is the time for all of us to work united to keep up the fight in the ongoing struggle for a new and better world. This is how we best honour the legacy of this tireless, humble, incredible and one of a kind revolutionary.

On October 4, 2016 Hurricane Matthew hit Eastern Cuba with devastating force. Thousands of homes and public institutions were destroyed. At the same time, because of Cuba’s excellent government and community preparation, not a single life was lost. However, Cuba now faces huge challenges for rebuilding after Hurricane Matthew which is made worse by the ongoing U.S. blockade against the island.

Haiti was also hit by Hurricane Matthew with a similarly devastating force and tragically over one thousand Haitians lost their lives. In response, Cuba’s revolutionary government sent 40 new doctors and emergency medical personnel to reinforce the 600 Cuban doctors and other health professionals already stationed in Haiti before the hurricane.

From here in Vancouver, it is time for us to do our part! Come out for a fun and dynamic Zumba class (for people of all ages and abilities) and help contribute to the fundraising campaign for Hurricane relief for Cuba and the Cuban doctors in Haiti.

All funds raised to go to the Hurricane relief funds for reconstruction in Cuba after Hurricane Matthew, and to support the Cuban doctors’ mission in Haiti.

Interested in what Zumba is? Check out this video.
