Please note:  The forum this week will be on Saturday, Feb. 28.  The forum the week after will again be on Friday night, March 6 and it will be a showing of a film on the status of women in Cuba titled With Our Memory on the Future. 


The Militant Labor forum presents:

 
A Celebration of the Publication of the new book by
Pathfinder Press
Capitalism and the
Transformation of Africa
Reports from Equatorial Guinea
• Transforming production and class relations• Cuban
Revolution's internationalist road

 
"In the decades
of wars, economic crises, and explosive class battles that lie ahead, the
weight of the toilers of Africa in shaping the future will be greater than ever
before."

Reporting from Equatorial Guinea in central Africa, the authors focus on the social transformations unfolding, as
revenues from offshore oil extraction are used to build infrastructure on which
rising labor productivity, industry, and progress depend. Pulled into the world
market as never before, both a capitalist class and a working class are being
born.

Here also, in accounts of the work of
volunteer Cuban medical brigades in Equatorial Guinea, is the living example of Cuba’s socialist revolution—made possible by workers and farmers who were led
five decades ago to take power into their own hands.

Woven together, these seemingly
disparate threads—the beginning transformation of production and class
relations in Equatorial Guinea, and the proletarian course of the Cuban
Revolution—show a future to be fought for today. 


Hear a presentation on the book and on the recent 
launching of it at the Havana Book Fair.
