Video on Cuba’s Role in the Fight Against the Invasion

“Cuito Cuanavale has been a turning point in the struggle
to free the continent and our country from the scourge of apartheid!” -- Nelson
Mandela







  Cuba first sent troops to Angola at the
request of the newly independent Angolan government in November 1975. In 1987,
in the face of a critical situation in which South African troops had encircled
Cuito Cuanavale in southeast Angola, Cuba made the decision to send thousands
of volunteer reinforcements and massive amounts of weaponry and supplies. By
March 1988 the South African troops had been dealt a decisive military defeat.
Come hear about this important 



episode
in the history of southern Africa and learn about Cuba’s role in Africa
today.
