50 Years since the defeat of the Bay of Pigs invasion

RATB Public Meeting - Friday 6 May 2011, Bolivar Hall , 54 Grafton Way, London, W1.

50th anniversary of the victory at the Bay of Pigs; The original flyer listed Steve Ludlam as a speaker but unfortunately he has been persuaded by members of the Executive Committee of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign (CSC) that appearing on the RATB platform is incompatible with his role in the CSC. Sadly this is not the first time that RATB events have been undermined in this way. However, we are delighted to announce the participation of historian Alex von Tunzelmann, author of the Indian Summer and the new book, Red Heat (pub. 14 April 2011) which discusses the Bay of Pigs fiasco and the Cuban Missile crisis.
