Aleida Guevara's Oxford talk a huge success

Oxford CSC welcomed Dr Aleida Guevara and long-term friend Luis Marron to a special public meeting on 19th September as part of her ‘Remembering Che’ speaking tour.

Aleida spoke to well over 100 people at the Tingewick Hall in the John Radcliffe Hospital about life in Cuba and how they had to buy powdered milk from New Zealand because of the US blockade and because Cuba's environment  cannot sustain a dairy industry. She spoke eloquently and passionately about the plight of the Miami Five and called for them to be repatriated.

Aleida then went on to do a book-signing at Waterstones’ in the City Centre following an exclusive interview with the Oxford Mail. The queue was long but people were very patient and wanted to talk to Aleida about her family. Aleida was offered courtesy and kindness by everyone involved.
