Ögmundur Jónsson, volunteer for Pathfinder Publishing at the Havana International Book Fair last February will give a presentation on the Cuban revolution at Snarrót Radical Centre, Garðarstræti 2, on March 15th. Some of the points discussed will be:

* How does the Cuban revolutionary leadership mobilize working people to take on the challenges posed by the country’s integration into the world market?
* How do the campaigns to expand education and culture to everyone in the “Battle of Ideas” work?
* How does Cuba defend itself against relentless economic, political and military pressure by the United States?
* What is the effect of growing ties between Cuba and Venezuela, where millions of workers, farmers and youth are taking part in campaigns to eradicate illiteracy, expand health care to everyone and distribute land to landless peasants?
