The next CSC meeting will be on Tuesday 10th May, 7pm at Unison Regional Office, Arenas Point, 1 Hunts Bank, Manchester, M3 1UN - up the stairs to the left of the stairs to the MEN Arena
This year is the 50th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs where Cuban militias alongside the police and armed forces defeated an invasion of 1,500 mercenaries trained, armed and deployed by Washington. This example of how it is possible to confront and resist US might is one that 50 years on the US still cannot stomach.
To mark the anniversary we will be showing a Cuban film which has been made available to us by branch members.
The film is 66 hours : the story of Playa Giron and is based on coverage by Luis Baez, the main Cuban journalist who covered the event at the time. It features interviews with participants and footage of the actual event. (NB film is in Spanish with English subtitles, 55 mins).
Please feel free to pass on details of this event to interested parties.
Continuing on the theme of defending the revolution, and following from our member's report last meeting, we will also be discussing ways in which we can renew our support for The Cuba 5. If people have ideas and information please bring them to the meeting.
