Cuba is a centralized, planned economy and communist one-party state where no other parties are permitted. After Fidel Castro’s illness in 2008, hope of reform was spread, but the small changes that have occurred since then are merely symbolic actions without any real value.
On October 9 and 10, the Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation organizes a seminar in Stockholm respectively in Uppsala with Jorge Luís García Pérez, leader of Cuba’s civic resistance movement and Iris Tamara Pérez Aguilera, founder and President of the Rosa Parks Women’s Movement, who will give their views on the developments in the country.
The seminar will be held in English.
