We are delighted to say that Graham McGeoch will be speaking on his recent trip to Cuba. Graham is a theologian and parish minister in the Church of Scotland. He has worked with the church in Africa, Europe and Latin America. He has collaborated with the Landless Workers' Movement in Brazil - the largest social movement in the world - for over 10 years, and has engaged widely with other social movements across Latin America.

Canadian author and academic Keith Bolender presents a timely talk on the relationship between Cuba and the US since the decision to restore diplomatic relations in December 2014. What needs to be done to restore full normal relations and end the US blockade once and for all. Is the US still pursuing its 'regime change' policies in Cuba with different tactics, and how can the Cuban people ensure the gains of the revolution are defended.

Keith Bolender is a lecturer in journalism and the award winning author of two books on Cuba - 'Voices from the other Side: An Oral History of Terrorism Against Cuba', and 'Cuba Under Siege: American Policy, the Revolution and its People'.
