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, and especially the concept of Revolutionary Internationalism, Cuba has become a country renowned for its achievements in health, education, culture, science and many other aspects of social and human progress. The Cuban socialist project and the Cuban revolutionary leadership, despite 50 years of an inhuman and criminal blockade by consecutive US administrations, have never wavered to imperialist pressure.
The 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 in 2009 was “50 Years of Dynamism of the Cuban Revolution,” the third in 2010 was “Cuba & Revolutionary Internationalism,” the fourth in 2011 was “Cuba Today - The Gains & Challenges,” the fifth in 2012 was “Cuba’s Reforms: Capitalism or Socialism.”
In 2015, the sixth International Che Guevara Conference was titled, “Cuba: a Socialist Project in Progress” which featured the participation of 6 prominent Cuban guests including Aleida Guevara, daughter of Che Guevara. The Conference dove deeper into what has made the Cuban Socialist Revolution successfully move forward and how it is evolving today.
In October 2017 the 7th International Che Guevara Conference will take place on two historic anniversaries: 50 years after the assassination of Ernesto Che Guevara and 100 years since the Russian Revolution. The conference will honour these events with the title, “From the Russian Revolution to the Cuban Revolution: the question of leadership & implementing the socialist project & where we are today.” The conference will feature many prominent Cuban guests, including FERNANDO GONZÁLEZ, one of the 5 Cuban heroes unjustly held in U.S. prison for more than 16 years.
