Fight White Supremacy at Home and Imperialism Abroad
Celebrate 60+ Years of the Cuban Revolution
LIVE IN-PERSON EVENT! (Masks and distancing PLEASE!)
Rally at Townsend Park (Central Ave. & Henry Johnson Blvd., Albany)
Saturday July 25, 2:00PM
Special presentation: Black Lives Tribute to Cuba in Honor of Assata: Live speakers/performers Rosa Clemente, Lajas, Taina Asili and more! Celebrating the historic bond of love and solidarity between Black Liberation/Black Lives and revolutionary Cuba, and 40 years of safe haven in Cuba for Black Liberation warrior Assata Shakur.
Right now, with a tidal wave of righteous rage against racist police murders, it’s the right time to stand up against U.S. military and economic violence trying to impose this SAME SYSTEM OF WHITE SUPREMACY by force on the rest of the world -- the system of IMPERIALISM. And to celebrate the survival and resistance of revolutionary Cuba, which for 61 years has challenged the constant threats to its self-determination by the U.S.
While an uprising led by Black youth is challenging the roots of racism/white supremacy at home, the U.S. is continuing its economic and military aggression against countries around the world where Black and other people of color live. Cuba has led the world in standing up to U.S. bullying! In defiance of a deadly U.S. economic blockade, Cuba is sending brigades of doctors around the world to help fight Covid-19. Come out to celebrate resistance on July 26, the anniversary of the beginning of the Cuban Revolution!
