This September, a new book which gives a voice to the thousands of Cuban victims of terrorism will be launched during a CSC speaking tour by Canadian author Keith Bolender
‘Voices from the other side: An oral history of Terrorism against Cuba’, deals with the terrorist acts perpetrated against the Cuban people by counter-revolutionary groups based in the USA. An informative introduction by Noam Chomsky provides the context for these attacks; 50 years of aggressive US foreign policy directed towards the island by 10 successive US Presidents.

Since the early 1960s, few other countries have endured more acts of terrorism against civilian targets than Cuba, and the US has had its hand in much of it. Bolender gives a voice to the victims, allowing them to articulate the atrocities the Cuban people have suffered - which largely originate from Cuban counter-revolutionaries based in the US, often with the active help of the CIA.
Keith Bolender has lectured on the Cuban revolution at the University of Toronto and written numerous articles on Cuba for the Toronto Star.
