Jorge Luis Garcia, from the Cuban Embassy, speaks to British workers, members and supporters of the CPGB-ML, gathered to celebrate the 97th Anniversary of the October Revolution in Saklatvala hall in November 2014.
He explains that Cuba not only brought the October Revolution to the Americas, but outlines some of the practical ways in which the Cuban revolution serves the people of Cuba, the Americas and the world, showing its internationalism and in this way paying tribute to the spirit and essence of Socialism, that was first brought to the world by the earth shaking events of November 1917.
Cuba has sent 641 doctors to help the people of West Africa suffering from the Ebola outbreak, while the US response has been to send soldiers.
He makes reference to the hostility of the USA toward Cuba, and that the Cuban government continues to campaign for the release of the Miami 5 – three of whom remain incarcerated illegally in the USA, after 16 years!
Che Guevara’s daughter will address a Vigil outside the US Embassy (Grosvenor Square, London, W1A 2LQ – on Friday 3rd December 2014, between 6-7.30pm) to highlight the plight of the remaining political prisoners, held in US Jails.
We ask all our members and supporters in the region to make every effort to attend!
These 5 brave sons of Cuba travelled to the US to expose and bring to light the terrorist activities of CIA sponsored Cuban exile groups who perpetrated bombings and acts of terror against the Cuban people, in a vain attempt to enforce ‘regime change’, and restore the parasitic and decadent order of comprador capitalist rule.
But the Cuban people remain strong, confident in their gains and willing to face their adversities squarely on their own feet; they realise that nothing is more precious than independence and freedom.
Cuba, he says, may be a small country without huge financial reserves, but Cuba is rich in ‘human capital’. The generosity and bold spirit of Cuba is evident to all who learn of her international medical aid program, and her courageous and successful defiance of US imperialist aggression.
Long live Socialist Cuba! Long live the October Revolution!
