Yesterday evening, the Friends of the Congo, with support from the Institute for Policy Studies, hosted a fantastic event (From Cuba to Kuba) which explored Cuban solidarity with African anti-imperialism movements. Che Guevara’s 7 month mission in the Congo in 1965 was the background for most of the dicussion. I had previously been to a Friends of the Congo event (held in the exact same venue no less – the DC municipal center on 14th and U) and I felt at odds with the organization’s ideological approach. I no longer have such qualms.
