Celebrate the 30th Anniversary
The Historic Military Defeat of Racist
South Africa in Angola

Nothing beats Cuba’s historic role in defeating apartheid South Africa’s army in Angola: some 450,000 Cubans volunteered to join that 15-year effort (over 2,000 of whom lost their lives).

Nelson Mandela– visiting Cuba first after his liberation from prison– put it like this:  “What other country has such a history of selfless behavior as Cuba has shown for the people of Africa?”
Please join us to learn more about and celebrate this historic event – and to support and send off the 10 Chicagoland folks going to Cuba as part of the International May Day Brigade.

• ‘Cuba in Africa – the Untold Story’ [video, 12 minutes]
• Prexy Nesbitt {central U.S. anti-apartheid leader/representative of
Mozambique’s FRELIMO liberation movement, worked with the ANC and Cuba];
• Dr. Piero Gleijeses (Johns Hopkins Advanced institute of International Studies,
world’s foremost authority on Cuba’s role in Africa) appearing via Skype;
• Two U.S. youth joining the International May Day Brigade
