Solidarity with Cuba

On July 31, more than 150 people from many solidarity groups across Sydney attended an event at the Greek community Club in Lakemba.

The event, organised by the Sydney ACFS and the Cuba Solidarity Committee, was to commemorate Fidel’s 90th birthday and the 63rd anniversary of the attack on Moncada Barracks on July 26, 1953.

There were several speakers followed by short videos where Fidel was thanked by many, including Nelson Mandela and by some of the many thousands of international medical students studying in Cuba.

Cuban music was provided by Papalote followed by Jorge Trujillo Hernandez the First Secretary from the Cuban Embassy who thanked us all for attending and supporting Cuba.

A memorable night of solidarity.
