  “All Guantanamo is Ours”

Join this commemoration of the start of the Cuban Revolution showing of 
the just-released documentary “All Guantanamo is Ours” (37 minutes), 
with guest presenter(s) and discussion, at the Coolidge Corner Library, 
Tuesday evening, July 26, 6:45-8:30.  The event is cosponsored by 
Brookline PAX and the July 26th Coalition, the Boston area Cuba 
solidarity organization, along with the National Network on Cuba and the 
International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity.

The film, by filmmaker and journalist Hernando Calvo Ospina, produced by 
Resumen Latinoamericano and the International Committee, in Spanish with 
English subtitles, presents the perspective and sentiment of the Cuban 
people, particularly those living in the towns around Guantanamo, about 
the illegal occupation of the U.S. Naval Base and shows what the 
occupation looked like before and after the revolution.  The trailer is 
available at http://theinternationalcommittee.org/new-film/.

Brookline has been selected for this showing as it is the first 
municipality on the East Coast to pass a resolution to End the 
Embargo/Blockade on Cuba which will be briefly discussed.   Nancy B. 
Kohn with the International Committee will talk about the recent 
conference that demanded the return of Guantanamo.

  Community Doctors: A look inside Cuba's medical scholarship program


This exceptionally moving and inspiring film tells the story of Cuba's 
international medical scholarship program and the young US-Americans, 
many from poor and underserved communities in the United States, who 
were awarded full scholarships to study medicine at the Latin American 
School of Medicine in Havana, Cuba. It follows them through their 
studies and experiences in Cuba and ultimately their work as medical 
doctors following graduation and their return to the USA.
