3rd Annual International Che Guevara Conference
Two Day Conference, Saturday June 26 & Sunday June 27, 2010
Russian Hall
600 Campbell Ave at Georgia St ~ Vancouver, Canada
Since the triumph of Cuba’s 1959 revolution to today, the vision and political ideas that shape the Cuban revolution remain a source of inspiration, discussion and debate around the world. Through the ideas of Fidel, Che, the Cuban socialist project, and the dynamics of the mass revolutionary movement, Cuba has become a country renowned for its achievements in health, education, culture, science and many other aspects of social and human progress. Not only have these achievements benefited the people of Cuba, but through the practice of revolutionary and working class internationalism, Cuba has made important contributions to third world nations across the globe, through brigades of Cuban doctors and teachers, as well as active solidarity with people fighting against capitalist injustice and imperialism. The Cuban socialist project and the Cuban revolutionary leadership, despite 50 years of an inhuman and criminal blockade by various US
 administrations, have never wavered to imperialist pressure.
The annual International Che Guevara Conference is an opportunity to discuss and debate the ideas of the Cuban revolution, its dynamism and how it has impacted Latin America and the world. The first International Che Conference in 2008 was on the theme “Che Guevara, Thinker and Fighter: Are His Ideas Relevant for the 21st Century?” The Second International Che Conference in 2009 was on “50 Years of Dynamism of the Cuban Revolution”. This year's conference, “Cuba and Revolutionary Internationalism” will discuss the foundation of the Cuban socialist revolution: revolutionary internationalism, its dynamism and its impact both inside and outside of Cuba. The conference, as in previous years, will feature speakers from Canada, Cuba, and other countries.
>> Workshops Include:
1. Cuba Today: How Far the Revolution Has Come
2. The Concept of Internationalism in Fidel's and Che's Ideas
3. The Origin of Revolutionary Internationalism: Explaining Marx and Engels
4. The Russian Revolution and the Foundation of the Third International
5. Cuba's Internationalism and its Influence on Hugo Chávez and the Bolivarian Revolutionary Process
6. Cuban Youth and Revolutionary Internationalism
7. The Call for a Fifth International: The Urgency and Prospects
8. Cuban Foreign Policy: Internationalism in Theory and Practice
** Saturday night of the conference, June 26 at 7:30PM will be a special evening dedicated to the 5 Cuban heroes held in US prisons with featured speakers, music, poetry and multimedia.
