Cuba and LGBT Rights - London

Talk and slideshow from recent LGBT delegation
Stockwell Centre, 1 Studley Road, SW4 6RA
Sunday 23 November 23 2014
1.30pm

A slide show and talk on Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Rights in Cuba by Francisco Gomez de Villaboa, participant in the Cuba Solidarity Campaign's delegation for Cuba for the International Day Against Homophobia in May 2014.

Latin America has long been seen in popular perception as a hotbed of machismo and anti-gay treatment and behaviour. And it has been one of the longstanding accusations against Cuba by the US government that LGBT people suffer discrimination and mistreatment on the island (A particularly hypocritical accusation in the light of the US’s own shocking history ).

The actual facts rarely get a hearing in this country where Cuba suffers from a virtual news blackout. With this in mind, South London CSC have organised a meeting to help get those facts out.

Our speaker, Francisco Gomez de Villaboa, travelled to Cuba this May to take part in IDAHO (International Day Against Homophobia) events in Havana. Among the many events organised over a 10 day period, were a mass march through the city, a gala in the Karl Marx theatre, community panels, theatre, cultural galas, lectures, symposia, workshops, art exhibitions and much more besides. Francisco will show his photos and share his recollection of the events.

Latin America Conference 2014 - London

‘Building a Better World’
Congress House, Great Russell Street, London WC1B
Saturday 29 November 2014
9.30am - 4.30pm

The 10th annual Latin America Conference is a forum for discussion, debate and action on developments in Latin America.

The Conference is a chance to hear first hand updates from Latin American campaigners from the region itself.

It is an opportunity to redress the inadequate and frequently distorted reporting about the region often seen in the British media.

Features seminar sessions on:
• Cuba – economic change, economic progress
• Nicaragua – 35 years on from the Sandinista revolution
• ‘It’s the economy stupid’ – Latin American responses to the crisis
• Venezuela - 15 years since president Chavez’ election
• ‘Wikileaks’ - right wing destabilisation and US intervention

Hear from special international guest speakers from Cuba, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and others, as well as academics, trade unionists and campaigners.

"The Latin America Conference is a ‘must attend’ event for all those interested in progressive politics in the region and the world"

Monday 27 October
Chirimbolo
Dir: Het Vervolg 2011
Four short documentaries about the remarkable way in which progress in Cuba is being made in the field of alternative energy, one of the reasons it is deemed by WWF as the only country practising sustainable development. A tribute to human creativity.

Monday 24 November
The Man from Maisinicu
Dir: Manuel Perez 1973.
1964 - Alberto Delgado, administrator of the Maisinicu farm is found, dead. What happened to him and who was he really? Based on a true story this b&w film is atmospheric, a tale of mystery and intense violence telling us much about conditions following the Revolution.
.................................

Cine Cuba is a monthly film club, generally held on the last Monday of the month (no film in December) & organised by North London Cuba Solidarity Campaign (NLCSC), showing films from or about Cuba. We aim to show films which provide an insight into the Cuban Revolution and the society, politics, history and culture of Cuba. Where possible we invite guest speakers with a special interest in the film topic.

We hope that viewers will stay at the end of the film and participate in the relaxed post-film discussion. Entry is free (with a requested donation to cover costs).

If you would like to know more about the NLCSC please email us on: northlondoncsc@gmail.com
