Victoria Park (Spring Garden and South Park), Halifax
July 26, 2010 will mark the 57th anniversary of the act that is annually celebrated all over Cubaas the beginning of the movement and struggle that paved the way for the Cuban Revolution. On that day 57 years ago, Cuba's rebels rose up against the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Although that first battle was lost, the Revolution ultimately prevailed.
On July 23, we gather to remember and honour those that were lost on that day, and to celebrate Cuba's independence. There will be performances from noted Nova Scotian jazz artist Jeff Goodspeed (director of famous youth music group Los Primos), El Jones (acclaimed spoken word artist), and more!
This is a free event organized by the Nova Scotia Cuba Association.
