Making a better world possible
The grandson and biographer of legendary Nicaraguan revolutionary leader Sandino; a member of the National Resistance Front against the Coup in Honduras; a community activist from Venezuela; and the new Cuban ambassador to the UK are just some of the key speakers featuring at this weekend’s Latin America 2010 conference at TUC Congress House.
Walter Sandino, describes his grandfather Augusto Sandino, as the “inspiration and example to many liberation movements in Latin America including the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA).’
Following the brutal coup in Honduras in June 2009, René Amador joined the National Resistance Front against the Coup d’ Etat, and together with thousands of other Hondurans risks violence and death by standing up stand up for their rights.
These Latin American speakers will join leading British trade unionists, writers, journalists, artists, politicians, campaigners, film directors, diplomats and academics at the sixth annual Latin America Conference on Saturday 4 December.
Key note speeches, film showings and workshops will give an opportunity to hear first hand from the peoples of Latin America about the reality of the region and effective ways for people in the UK to support their struggles and defend their achievements by getting involved in solidarity work.
