Cuba's sustainability success: People power vs imperialism

Saturday, February 29, 2020 - 14:00 to 17:00

Location: Boorloo Activist Centre, 15/5 Aberdeen Street, Perth ( next to McIver Station)

What does this tell us about the world economic system, and what lessons does this hold for us in Australia?
