On Friday November 2, 2012 Vancouver will host a special evening in tribute of the
5 Cuban heroes held in US jails to open the 4 day of Che Guevara International
Conference. Saturday and Sunday November 3 & 4 will feature two full days
in Vancouver with many workshops to provide enough time for discourse, debate,
argument, polemics and politics! Then we will take the Che Conference over 350
kilometers to the east to Kamloops, BC for 2 highly anticipated workshops on
the evening of Monday November 5.

The Vancouver International Che Guevara Conference began in 2008 in honour of Che’s
80th birthday. Each conference has held a unique theme, the first conference
“Che Guevara: Thinker & Fighter - Are His Ideas Relevant for the 21st
Century?”; 2009 conference “50 years of Dynamism of the Cuban Revolution”; 2010
conference “Cuba & Revolutionary Internationalism“ and 2011 Conference “Cuba
Today: The Gains & Challenges”. These 4 notable events which debated and
discussed the importance of the Cuban revolution and the Cuba solidarity movement
worldwide from the point of view of activists and revolutionaries were the only
of their kind in Canada. We are pleased that in the last four years we
have brought out more than 1,700 people, 35 speakers, and 35 different subjects
surrounding the Cuban revolution and its internal and external dynamics.

The 2012 conference will expand on the previous 4 years, with the theme of
“Cuba’s Economic Reforms: Capitalism or Socialism”. We will be welcoming many
important guests, including our honoured guest for the third year in a row, Dr.
Aleida Guevara, Cuban Leader, Prominent Author and Daughter of Legendary
Revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara. We hope to see you at the 5th annual Canada International
Che Guevara Conference.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
