>> ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL CHE GUEVARA CONFERENCE <<
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, 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 Guevara Conference in 2008 was on the theme, “Che Guevara, Thinker & Fighter: Are His Ideas Relevant for the 21st Century?” The Second International Che Conference in 2009 was on, “50 Years of Dynamism of the Cuban Revolution.” The Third International Che Conference in 2010 was on, “Cuba & Revolutionary Internationalism.” The Fourth International Che Conference in 2011 was on, “Cuba Today – The Gains and the Challenges.”

The 2012 International Che Guevara Conference discussed the most importance changes Cuba has seen in the last 50 years since Fidel's Second Declaration of Havana, in 1961. This conference, titled “Cuba's Reforms: Capitalism or Socialism” investigated, with the participation of 6 Cuban guests including  Aleida Guevara, daughter of Che Guevara, the roots of the current reforms and their future prospects and challenges.

In 2015 the Che Conference returns with, “Cuba, A Socialist Project in Progress” which aims to delve deeper into what has made the Cuban Socialist Revolution successful move forward and how it is evolving today.

This year's conference we will also discuss the recent developments in US/Cuba relations. This includes the historic victory of the return to Cuba of all 5 Cuban Heroes who were unjustly imprisoned for over 16 years in US jails. As well, we will examine the announcements by Cuban President Raul Castro and US President Barack Obama that new steps towards normalization of relations would occur between the two countries. This announcement has come over 50 years after the US broke diplomatic relations and imposed a cruel and ongoing blockade on Cuba. What has changed?

>> SOBRE LA CONFERENCIA INTERNACIONAL CHE GUEVARA<<
Desde el triunfo cubano en 1959 hasta hoy, la visión y las ideas políticas que dan forma a esta revolución  siguen siento una fuente de inspiración, discusión y debate por todo el mundo. A través de las ideas de Fidel, el Che, el proyecto socialista cubano y las dinámicas del movimiento  revolucionario de masas, Cuba se ha convertido en un país reconocido por sus logros en salud, educación, cultura y otros muchos aspectos del progreso humano. El royecto socialista cubano y la dirección de la Revolución Cubana, a pesar de 50 años de inhumano y criminal bloqueo sostenido por varias administradores, nunca  han cedido ante la presión imperialista.

La Conferencia Internacional Che Gevara es una oportundad para discutir y debatir las ideas de la revlución cubana, su dinamismo y cómo ha impactado en América Latina y el mundo.

La primera Conferencia Internacional Che Guevara en 2008 tenía como tema: Che Guevara, pensador y luchador: ¿Son sus ideas relevantes para el Siglo XXI?" La Segunda Conferencia en 2009 llevaba el tema de "50 años de la Revolución Cubana". la tercera Conferencia Internacional Che Guevara  en 2010 llevaba el tema de "Cuba y el internacionalismo revolucionario". la cuarta Conferencia en 2011 era sobre "Cuba hoy-Los logros y los retos".

La Conferencia Internacional Che Guevara en 2012 discutió los más importantes cambios que se vieron en Cuba en los úldimos 50 años, desde la Segunda Declaración de La Habana hecha por fidel en 1961 esta conferencia, llamada "Reformas Cubanas: ¿Capitalismo o Socialismo?", investigó, con la participación de seis invitados cubanos, incluyendo a Aleida Guevara, hija del Che Guevara, las raíces de las reformas actuales y sus futuros prospectos y desafíos.

En 2015 la Conferencia Che Guevara regresa con "Cuba, un proyecto socialista en progreso", que tiene como objetivo profundizar en lo que ha hecho que la Revolución Cubana avance de manera exitosa y cómo está evolucionando en la actualidad.

La conferencia de este año también discutirá los recientes acontecimientos en las relaciones Cuba-Estados Unidos. Esto incluye la histórica victoria que significó el regreso a Cuba de todos los Cinco Héroes Cubanos, quienes uferon injustamente encarcelados por más de 16 años en cárceles de Estados Unidos. También examinaremos los anuncios hechos por el Presidente Cubano Raúl Castro y el Presidente de Estados Unidos Barack Obama sobre que ocurrirían nuevos  pasos hacia la normalización de las relaciones entre las dos naciones. Este anuncio se hizo más de 50 aos luego de que los Estados Unidos rompiesen relaciones diplomáticas e impusieran un cruel y aún vigente bloqueo contra Cuba. ¿Qué ha cambiado?
