Fidel – The Untold Story


Fidel the untold story - cover

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017
6:30pm – 8:45pm

Fidel Castro is no longer with us.
 
 
 
For Donald Trump, some Cuban-Americans in Miami, and some of the British media this was a cause for a grotesque celebration. But millions of ordinary Cubans, and tens of millions throughout Latin America, Africa and beyond, mourned the loss of one of the greatest and most inspiring political leaders of the 20th century.
Come join us at this film showing to learn about and celebrate his life, and to hear how we intend to complete his legacy by achieving truly normal relations between Britain and Cuba.
