FIDEL! A Saul Landau Film Print E-mail

5 pm, Friday, July 25
Just Us! Cafe
5896 Spring Garden Rd, Halifax

Come and see the acclaimed film, FIDEL!, which chronicles a unique moment in Cuban history. Made ten-years after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution by the late acclaimed film-maker & scholar Saul Landau, FIDEL! documents a unique moment in the history of Cuba and the trajectory of the Cuban Revolution. Granted unprecedented access, Landau filmed & interviewed Fidel Castro as he criss-crossed Cuba, visiting farmers, schools, community elders, playing baseball etc. Most interesting and poignant is Fidel Castro's discussion and elaboration of the philosophy, politics and history undergirding the Cuban Revolution.

The late Saul Landau was an internationally-known scholar, author, commentator, and filmmaker on U.S. foreign policy.  Landau's most widely praised achievements are the over forty films he produced on social, political and historical issues, and worldwide human rights, for which he won the Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Award, the George Polk Award for Investigative Reporting, and the First Amendment Award, as well as an Emmy for Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang. Landau wrote over ten books, short stories and poems. He received an Edgar Allen Poe Award for Assassination on Embassy Row, a report on the 1976 murders of Chilean Ambassador Orlando Letelier and his colleague, Ronni Moffitt.

Organized & sponsored by the Nova Scotia Cuba Association & Canadian Network On Cuba

JOIN THE 2014 PASTORS FOR PEACE CARAVAN TO CUBA!
LET'S BREAK THE U.S. BLOCKADE ON CUBA!

The Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba is a U.S.-based Cuba solidarity project that
each summer brings humanitarian aid and U.S. citizens to Cuba to challenge the U.S.
Blockade and travel ban against Cuba.
Cuba solidarity organization across Canada have supported the Caravan since the
beginning over two decades ago. Cuba solidarity activists and Caravan supporters
from across British Columbia and Washington State will once again join the Caravan
by supporting the border crossing at Peace Arch Park. We will be bringing
humanitarian aid and Caravan participants across the U.S/Canada border on route to
Cuba!

The Peace Arch border crossing has been the scene of several important recent
victories against the U.S. Blockade on Cuba. Notably, the 2012 border crossing
became an international event when U.S.   border officials repeatedly attempted to
deny our humanitarian aid from crossing the border. However,  by launching an
emergency media campaign, legal challenge and extended demonstration on both sides
of the border we forced them to allow the aid through. We need a strong presence at
the border to ensure our humanitarian aid will cross again!

Rain or Shine!

The event will include a potluck lunch (please bring a dish to share if you can!)

For carpooling to and from the border from Vancouver please phone:
778-882-5223 or 604-719-6947

WHAT IS THE PASTORS FOR PEACE CARAVAN TO CUBA? This summer for the 25th time, the
Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba will challenge the United States
government’s economic and travel blockade on Cuba, that has been imposed on the
Cuban people for over 50 years.

The Caravan will travel through up to 100 cities in the U.S. and Canada, raising
awareness about the U.S. blockade and gathering humanitarian aid to take to Cuba.
After two weeks of travelling through the U.S. there is a blockade busting border
crossing into Mexico. Caravanistas will then travel through Mexico and depart for
nine days in Cuba, participating in a variety of educational and cultural events. 

Over the past 25 Caravans thousands of participants and over 30,000 tons of
humanitarian aid have been brought to Cuba, building a ‘people-to-people’ foreign
policy based on mutual respect, solidarity and friendship between the people of the
U.S., Canada and Cuba.
