On Friday November 2, 2012 Vancouver will host a special evening in tribute of the 5 Cuban heroes held in US jails to open the 4 day of Che Guevara International Conference. Saturday and Sunday November 3 & 4 will feature two full days
in Vancouver with many workshops to provide enough time for discourse, debate, argument, polemics and politics! Then we will take the Che Conference over 350 kilometers to the east to Kamloops, BC for 2 highly anticipated workshops on the evening of Monday November 5.

The Vancouver International Che Guevara Conference began in 2008 in honour of Che’s 80th birthday. Each conference has held a unique theme, the first conference “Che Guevara: Thinker & Fighter - Are His Ideas Relevant for the 21st
Century?”; 2009 conference “50 years of Dynamism of the Cuban Revolution”; 2010 conference “Cuba & Revolutionary Internationalism“ and 2011 Conference “Cuba Today: The Gains & Challenges”. These 4 notable events which debated and discussed the importance of the Cuban revolution and the Cuba solidarity movement worldwide from the point of view of activists and revolutionaries were the only of their kind in Canada. We are pleased that in the last four years we have brought out more than 1,700 people, 35 speakers, and 35 different subjects surrounding the Cuban revolution and its internal and external dynamics.

The 2012 conference will expand on the previous 4 years, with the theme of “Cuba’s Economic Reforms: Capitalism or Socialism”. We will be welcoming many important guests, including our honoured guest for the third year in a row, Dr.
Aleida Guevara, Cuban Leader, Prominent Author and Daughter of Legendary Revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara. We hope to see you at the 5th annual Canada International
Che Guevara Conference.
