United Steelworkers’ Hall 25
Cecil Street (one block southeast of College & Spadina)

On July 26th, 1953 the Cuban people attacked the Moncada and the Carlos Manuel de Céspedes garrisons, symbols of the tyranny and occupation of Cuba under the U.S. puppet regime of Batista. Although the attack was defeated, it raised the banner of struggle, which would lead to the victory of the Cuban Revolution. We celebrate with the added joy of seeing Fidel Castro, the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, in an ever combative but convincing exchange of ideas on international issues live.

MASTER OF CEREMONIES – Fidelito
WELCOMING REMARKS – Raúl Delgado Concepción, the Honorable Consul of Cuba in Toronto
MUSIC & POETRY
Poetic Voices/Voces Poéticas – Indigenous/Hispanic

While remembering the Cuban Five anti-terrorist political prisoners of the U.S. since Sept. 12th, 1998 who are heroically enduring their imprisonment with dignity for their beloved Cuba; this year’s July 26th is dedicated to Alicia Alonso, founder of the National Ballet of Cuba for her untiring commitment to the universal understanding of culture and the realization of Jose Marti’s saying that “Homeland is Humanity“.
