U.S.-CUBA POLICY PRESENTATION
The US government's misguided policy toward Cuba will be the topic of a program featuring a film and speaker to be held at 7 PM
The documentary, One Man's Story: Philip Agee, Cuba, and the CIA was filmed in Havana and contains excellent archive material of numerous US covert and direct involvements in Latin America. Agee became one of the most important whistle blowers about US support for the installation and maintenance of brutal dictatorships throughout the Western Hemisphere and beyond. His passport was taken away in 1979 “to protect national security.”
Guest speaker Alicia Jrapko is a Bay Area human rights activist who was born in Argentina and left during the brutal military dictatorship of the seventies. She has been working to change US policy toward Cuba and is a member of the International Committee for Freedom for the Cuban Five, who for ten years have been political prisoners in the US. Alicia is familiar with every aspect of their case and will discuss the current status of the struggle to Free the Five.
This event is sponsored by the Task Force on the Americas. A $5-10 donation is requested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
