Calixto Garcia Brigade Print E-mail
(Please note this is not a CNC project but the CNC is helping to promote this Brigade)

ICAP in Holguin has organized a Solidarity Brigade for friends that have shown their support for the Cuban Revolution. It will become an International Brigade, but in this its inaugural year, only Canadians have been invited.

The Brigade is named in honour of Major General Calixto Garcia, the only Cuban general to have fought in all three wars of independence between 1868 and 1898.

Participants will learn about the resolve of the Cubans from “Oriente Province” in fighting for the country’s independence from Spanish colonial rule and their contribution to the overthrow of the violent dictatorship of Batista in the 1950’s.

Participants will also do some light volunteer work.
