On July 26th, 1953 a group of Cuban revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro attacked the Moncada Army Barracks. Although this attack was defeated militarily, taking the lives of dozens of rebel fighters and imprisoning many others, including Fidel Castro, it is seen as the beginning of the Cuban revolution. It is the July 26th Movement, named after this initial defeat, that led the Cuban revolution to victory under the leadership of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and their compañeros.

In May 2014 the 2014 Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade was in Cuba, visiting Havana, Caimito, Sancti Spiritus, Trinidad and Santa Clara. This group of over 30 participants from across Canada visited schools, medical clinics, cultural projects, historical sites and had a chance to work side-by-side with Cubans. On July 26th, many BC participants will join us to show photos and give a report back on this important experience.

Please join us in the beautiful Trout Lake Park to commemorate the July 26th movement and learn about the Che Brigade. Through a program of dynamic speakers, poets, musicians and good food!

>> The event is free, BBQ by donation & if possible bring some food to share for the potluck! <<
