Join the Australia-Cuba Friendship Society, ACFS Perth to celebrate the Santiago de Cuba Carnival on Saturday 28th July 2012. Doors open from 7:30pm until late.
Dance the night away with local Latin bands:
SON LATINO & LATIN FUSION
On 26th July 1953 Fidel Castro and a small group of Cuban patriots attacked the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes military garrisons. The end result of that revolutionary act was a failure with most of the patriots killed or arrested, tortured and killed.
Fidel was arrested but released 18 months later due to popular unrest demonstrating against the Batista dictatorship.
Cuba was a mess in the hands of the US backed Batista regime which finally was overthrown by Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and thousands of Cubans who led the uprise to victory on 1st January 1959.
This event is celebrated across Cuba with a one week festival in recognition of the spark of the Cuban revolution that brought to its knees a corrupt and fascist military dictatorship in 1959.
Dance the night away with these two superb latino bands, try your luck with our evening raffle and enjoy Latin drinks and the traditional Cuban mojitos on the night.
All proceeds to go to the ACFS Cuban solidarity projects in Cuba. Entry: $25/$23
