Cuban film screening at York University in Toronto

Estudiantes de la Escuela Latinoamericana de Medicina en La Habana

Como Angeles – Like Angels

6:00 p.m., Thursday, September 19, 2013, Atkinson Building, Room 004
Free admission

Hear dedicated young doctors tell the extraordinary story of their widely recognized six-year medical training – under fully paid Cuban international scholarships – at the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM), the world’s largest medical university, located near Havana.  The graduates, themselves from rural and poor communities in Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the United States, describe their subsequent experiences bringing affordable, quality medical care to impoverished populations in their home countries, typically for the first time.

30 min., English subtitles

This screening is part of the
Festival of Cuban Films for Freedom for the Cuban Five, marking the
15th anniversary of their wrongful imprisonment in the United States

              September 12, 2013 is the 15th anniversary of the arrest of the Cuban Five.
              These five men who harmed no one have been unjustly held in U.S. prisons
              under extraordinarily harsh, politically motivated sentences.

              Their only “crime” was to protect their homeland, Cuba, from repeated
              terrorist attacks engineered in Florida. The continued imprisonment of the  
              Five is an international outrage. They must be released!
              On this 15th anniversary of the wrongful arrest of the Five, the international
              movement for their freedom is rallying many thousands of people behind
              this call ― at protests, pickets, and a myriad of other actions. In Toronto,
              join us as we raise our voices loudly to demand freedom for the Five!

Free the Cuban Five!       End the injustice!   
15 Years ― Too Long, Too Wrong!

Sponsored by CUPE 3903 at York University
