Attend this year's annual July 26th Celebration in solidarity with the Cuban Revolution!
CSNY urges everyone to attend this year's annual July 26th
2008 Celebration in solidarity with the Cuban Revolution! This years event
will take place on saturday, July 26th at the 1199/SEIU Building Martin Luther
King Labor Center, 310 West 43rd Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues, Times
Square Subway Stop) in Manhattan. (See English (Revised Spanish version posted soon)
This years event takes place as rampant speculation,
disinformation, and wishful thinking envelopes big-business media coverage of
Cuban reality since Fidel Castro, for reasons of health, declined to put
himself forward in nomination for re-election as President of the Cuban Council
of State and the election of Raul Castro to that position. The issue of Cuba
has also entered into this year's Presidential election campaign as McCain and
Obama, both of whom support continued US sanctions, engage in a tactical debate
over whether or not to liberalize travel restrictions for Cuban-Americans or
engage in any direct diplomatic contact with the revolutionary Cuban
government, and whether or not such "adjustments" would advance their
common aim of destroying the Cuban Revolution and its example for the volatile
Latin America of today.
The theme of this year's Celebration is "Change in
Continuity, Continuity in Change." The featured speaker will be a
representative of the Cuban Mission to the United Nations, as well as a moving
film with relatives of the Cuban Five made by New York filmmakers Sally O'Brien
and Jennifer Wager. The will be food, drink and music.
Join us for an evening of solidarity and good time!
