We will be showing The Day Diplomacy Died!
This new documentary by Bernie Dwyer and Roberto Ruiz Rebo, who produced the seminal documentary on the Cuban 5 "Mission Against Terror", exposes the story behind the lock up of 75 "independent" journalists, trade unionists, and librarians in Cuba in 2003 through the eyes of four ex-Cuban state agents working undercover. The mainstream media never fully investigates the role played by the US diplomats in Cuba in controlling the "dissidents" movement.
In this film former Cuban undercover agents speak out for the first time on film about the inner workings of the dissident groups they infiltrated and the various plans, supported by the U.S. Government, that were being developed to destabilize Cuba.
Help us send off the NYC members of The Venceremos Brigade's 42nd Contingent, who will be leaving for Cuba on Sunday July 17th for their Travel Challenge!
Come meet and get to know these amazing Brigadistas!
JOIN US FOR THE OPENING EXHIBITION OF
"HUMOR FROM MY PEN"
For several months, This exhibition has been traveling throughout the U.S. For all to enjoy!
This amazing exhibition consists of political cartoons by Gerardo Hernandez of the Cuban 5.
Thursday July 14th-To be announced... At Casa de Las Americas
Humor has accompanied Gerardo Hernández Nordelo since childhood. A great sense of responsibility, and sense of humor was always part of his philosophy of life. Even in the toughest moments, he has not given up the ability to laugh at adversity. Gerardo is one of the Cuban Five political prisoners held in U.S. Prisons since 1998. He is currently serving two life sentences at the U.S. Penitentiary in Victorville, California. Gerardo, Ramón Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and René Gonzalez, internationally known as the Cuban 5, were accused of conspiracy to commit espionage. The US government never accused them of actual espionage, nor did it affirm that real acts of espionage had been carried out, as no classified document had been confiscated from the Five. Their actual mission in the United States was monitoring the activities of the groups and organizations responsible for terrorist activities against Cuba.
