What? Democracy in Cuba?!?

A talk by
Arnold August
Author, Democracy in Cuba

Thanks to anti-Cuba propaganda, most Americans still don't realize that Cuba holds regular elections at all levels of government, local through national. With U.S. interest in meddling in Cuba at an all-time high because of Fidel Castro's departure from power, it is especially important that activists in particular know more about Cuba's democratic system.

Few people in North America know that system as well as Canadian scholar and activist Arnold August, who has spent decades researching its unique organization and has written many articles and a well-respected book on the subject. He recently spent several months in Cuba working on his forthcoming book Cuba: Participatory Democracy and Elections in the 21st Century.

Free (contributions will be requested). Sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center, the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five, and Womens International League for Peace and Freedom - Peninsula Branch.
