The Moncada Day event at Victoria Park is being postponed to next Friday, August 2 due to the threat of rain and the resulting problem with the live music in a wet environment.  What is a Cuban event without live music.....

MOMENTS WITH FIDEL

Fidel Castro served as the leader of Cuba's government for over five decades, since revolutionary forces toppled the Batista regime in 1959. Castro has had to survive over 600 assassination attempts. Cuban director Rebeca Ch├ívez uses archival film and audio material to create a collage of important moments in Castro’s political and personal life, including his re-definition of Cuba’s role after the collapse of the Communist Bloc.

"An exceptional history of the Cuban Revolution. Timely not only as an emblematic collection about one of the most passionate and controversial episodes in modern history, but also because it cleans the way of lies and myths manufactured and repeated by the media." -CubaNow.net

A free event organized by the Nova Scotia Cuba Association. Other sponsors include: Canadian Network on Cuba, Canadian Union of Postal Workers,  Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group, Nor Harbour for War Committee.
