Speakers Corner: The Cuban Revolution

Speakers Corner: The Cuban Revolution
Chaz Mena
Friday 24th June 20:00 (30 Min)
Outdoor Programme & Speakers Corner
There were many Cuban Revolutions, many fronts led by engaged men and women, largely middle class but also stemming from the most moneyed and influential families on the island. To the detriment of Cuban history and the struggles of Latin Americans, Fidel and Ramon Castro’s July 26 Movement monopolised the face of struggle. ‘Cuba may be thin, but it’s long,’ as the saying goes, and its reach in world affairs far outweighed the size of its territory. Come, let’s dispel the myths together, as Chaz Mena relates the exciting but tragic story of la Revolución cubana! This event will be held at the Storage Works Speakers Corner tent.
