The Cuban Revolution started with the attack on the Moncada barracks on July 26th 1953. The Revolution was eventually victorious over the U.S.-backed Batista dictatorship. Join us for a celebration of the Cuban revolution and an evening in solidarity with the Cuban Five--five men unjustly imprisoned in U.S. jails for fighting terrorism.
The proceeds from this benefit will go toward the HUGE billboard for the Cuban Five to be displayed at Mission and 10th Streets in San Francisco for the month of September, the 10th year of their unjust imprisonment.

The benefit will feature a special performance by "The Troublemakers Union Band," an update on the Cuban Five's freedom struggle, a delicious Cuban dinner, and door prizes.
