Africa’s Children Return! Cuba and African Liberation

November 13 & 14, 2015 , United Steelworkers Hall , 25 Cecil St., Toronto

“The Cuban people hold a special place in the hearts of the peoples of Africa. The Cuban internationalists have made a contribution to African independence, freedom and justice, unparalleled for its principled and selfless character...Cubans came to our region as doctors, teachers, soldiers, agricultural experts, but never as colonizers. They have shared the same trenches with us in the struggle against colonialism, underdevelopment, and apartheid. Hundreds of Cubans have given their lives, literally, in a struggle that was, first and foremost, not theirs but ours. As Southern Africans we salute them. We vow never to forget this unparalleled example of selfless internationalism.”— Nelson Mandela

Re: An in-line society in an online era, printed July 25, 2015

I was saddened and to read this shallow and negative article about Cuban lineups. How sad to see this article, particularly on the eve of one of Cuba’s important dates: July 26 commemorating the attack on the dictator Batista’s Moncada barracks. The Cubans are celebrating 62 years of defending independence, justice and dignity.

62 Years Since Moncada! 62 Years of Defending Independence, Justice and Dignity!

- Isaac Saney, Co-Chair & Spokesperson, Canadian Network On Cuba, July 26, 2015 -

July 26th, 2015 marks the 62nd anniversary of the act that is annually commemorated all over Cuba as the beginning of the movement and struggle that paved the way for the Cuban Revolution. On that day 62-years ago, Cubans rose up against the U.S. supported dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Although that first battle was lost, the Revolution ultimately prevailed on January 1st, 1959.  During the annual July 26th commemorations, the people of Cuba gather to honour the heroines and heroes of Moncada, and to celebrate Cuba's independence.
