All the following events will be held at the Center for Marxist  
550 Mass. Ave, 2nd floor, Central Square, Cambridge near the Central  
Square MBTA station on the Red Line

This Sunday

  December 9 @ 6 p.m.
Looking for Fidel  2011, English Narration, 63 minutes

Come see Oliver Stone’s candid, in-depth conversation with Fidel  
Castro. Stone challenges Castro to explain actions following the  
execution of three political dissidents who attempted to hijack a  
ferry to the United States in April 2003. Castro's response and his  
actions were condemned throughout the capitalist world, further  
isolating Cuba. Stone was given unprecedented access, interviewing  
not only Castro, but many of the prisoners, their wives, leading  
dissidents and human rights advocates -- all of whom express their  
views forcefully in the emotionally charged environment of Cuba today.

Upcoming events:

China Study, Thursday  December 13 @ 7 p.m.
"Presentation and discussion on the results of China's 18th Party  
Congress, the new leadership and possible implications for policy."

Samia Halaby, Saturday, December 15 @ 3 p.m.

  “My experience as the first artist invited from the US in Cuba’s  
3rd Havana Biennial”

  Samia Halaby, a Palestinian artist now living in NY, discusses her  
experience in Cuba, a state where the working class took power. She  
examines differences between the bourgeoisie's Venice Biennale of  
1988 and the Havana Biennial of 1989. The presentation also provides  
background on abstraction and its sources in revolution, and  
contrasts it with the idealism behind current, very retrograde,  
capitalist painting.
